Emergency Commissioners Meeting MAR 26 at 7PM

The Springfield Township Board of Commissioners will consider a COVID-19 Emergency Response Ordinance

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The Board of Commissioners of Springfield Township will hold an emergency meeting by public teleconference on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. to consider and could vote to adopt an Ordinance entitled “COVID-19 Emergency Response Ordinance.” 

If adopted, this proposed ordinance would:

  • Extend the local disaster and health emergency declaration within the Township due to COVID-19;
  • Temporarily suspend the requirements for competitive bidding on a limited basis;
  • Authorize the temporary conducting of Township public meetings by way of electronic communication;
  • Authorize an extension to the public for the payment and filing of local taxes; and
  • Provide temporary emergency procedures for the Township’s handling of right-to-know requests.

Following state and federal mandates to close businesses and limit social interaction to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Springfield Township will be utilizing the Zoom web conferencing program for this meeting. Instructions on how to join the meeting and the temporary guidelines that are now in place for township meetings can be found on the Township calendar (CLICK HERE). 

For the safety of the public, Commissioners and staff, it is strongly recommended that members of the community participate in the meeting online or on the phone. The ability to use web conferences is the result of the State relaxing Sunshine Law standards during this time of crisis to permit municipalities to continue operating while protecting their elected officials, employees and the public.

Please bear with us as we work through this technology that is relatively new to most of us for public meetings. Springfield Township is committed to providing continuity of essential services throughout this unprecedented time. Thanks to all our community members for their patience and understanding during these trying and unprecedented times.
