The growing second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has led Seaside Heights officials to shut down the municipal building until further notice, the borough announced Sunday night.
“We continue to respond internally to COVID-19 and are following CDC guidelines,” the announcement said. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”
The closure will affect this week’s reorganizational meetings for the planning board and borough council, to be held Jan. 4 and Jan. 6, respectively, and both will be streamed via Zoom. There will be no in-person attendance.
While the closure is in effect, residents are urged to use the drop box in the outer lobby or the online payment portal for property tax, water/sewer, and electric payments. The Public Works Department remains open and is not impacted by the closure of Borough Hall.
Anyone who wishes to speak with staff from the Borough Clerk’s Office, Code Enforcement, or Construction Office should call the main line at 732-793-9100 and the person who answers will forward your call or message to staff that are standing by off-site.
