Jenkintown Borough Council sends greetings to you with the hope that you are well and staying physically and socially distant. Please obey the urgent warnings from Montgomery County and State of Pennsylvania officials who urge us to STAY AT HOME except for necessary and life sustaining tasks.
Our borough government and professionals are working to keep providing emergency services, necessary public works services and to share information as it becomes available. The borough manager, our chief of police, chief of the fire department, public works staff and others will continue to lead the way and keep our borough running. Borough emails and phone messages are being received and responded to.
Borough Council is in touch with our professionals by phone and email.
As a Council, representatives from all four wards met in three small groups virtually on Zoom on March 30. Our Borough Solicitor’s office is now advising that because Governor Wolf has declared Pennsylvania in a state of emergency we are permitted to hold virtual Council meetings.
