Mayor Update – Revised 5/4/2020

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We are all facing unprecedented times as we continue to deal with the impact Covid-19 has placed on our daily lives.  Our main focus remains the safety and welfare of our Township residents and we will continue to provide the essential services to the community. 

Recently, many of our local businesses have stepped up to help residents in need by serving as drop off locations for food donations.  I would like to thank the following business and all the volunteers assisting in collecting food for less fortunate neighbors as we face this pandemic together.  These businesses include:

  • Route 130 Diner
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Staples
  • Calvary Church
  • Milanese Pizza
  • Dooney’s Pub
  • Kiddie Academy

I like to thank Calvary Church and all their volunteers for serving as the distribution center. 

I would also like to thank the following:

  • Cub Scout Troop 17 which is raising funds for hometown heroes and essential workers.    
  • Shia Association of North America for providing homemade masks to the Delran Township Police Department. 
  • I would like to extend a special thank you to Sue and Ted Huesken, who are Township residents and also members of our Delran Green Team, in recognition of their thoughtfulness and generosity during these challenging times.  Sue and Ted made 80 fabric masks and donated them to the Delran Township Fire District.  They have also offered to make them available to community workers. We appreciate their efforts and can’t thank them enough for their considerate donation. 
  • Special thank you to Melissa Wegfahart for providing entertainment Friday night to neighbors and friends on Facebook during these trying times. Her singing helped provide much need relief. Thank you again from all.

We would like to continue to highlight these acts of kindness throughout our community.  Please feel free to contact the Mayor’s office at (856) 461-7734 ext. 100 or email kparis1@delrantownship.org with any information on other acts of kindness from our local businesses and organizations or residents so we can acknowledge their service to the community.

2020 Census Information

Census 2020 has started. The official US Census Day is April 1st. Everyone should already have received their mailed invitation to respond to the Census. For the first time, you can RESPOND ONLINE, BY PHONE, OR BY MAIL, all without leaving the safety of your own home.

It’s very important for New Jersey and Delran Township that every resident gets counted, regardless of age or immigration status. Our Congressional representation depends on it. Over $1 trillion in Federal funding is allocated nationally based wholly or in part on Census counts, including almost $46 billion for New Jersey in FY2017, including about $12 billion for Medicare and Medicaid, $1.6 billion for transportation, and more than $350 million for school breakfast and lunch programs. In these challenging times, it is especially true that continued funding for healthcare, health insurance, and emergency response resources is critical. Let’s make sure that New Jersey gets its fair share by achieving a complete count of all our residents.

You can fill out the Census online or by phone in any of 14 languages (English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, Japanese) and TTY/TDD by phone.

Positive COVID-19 Case In Delran

The Burlington County Health Department notified the Township today, March 24th, 2020, that a Delran resident has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Our thoughts are with this resident and his family.

Township of Delran is a very strong community but this confirmed case reminds us all that we are not immune to this current public health concerns. However, all residents can take deliberate efforts to flatten this curve of virus transmission by practicing social distancing and limiting high-risk situations. It is important that If you have any questions concerning medical advice that you seek advice from your primary care physician.

Please continue to support one another during this trying time for local, state and national communities.  Please continue to follow the advice of the Center for Disease Control, New Jersey Department of Health, the county of Burlington County Board of Health and the Township of Delran.

The Township will provide further details as the information becomes available.
