New Britain Borough staff and elected officials are working with our Emergency Management Coordinator and reviewing information from the federal, state and county government as the coronavirus situation develops.
While the Borough office will remain open at this time, any resident who wishes to handle a matter remotely is welcome to call (215-348-4586), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (215-348-5953) or contact us via FaceBook (www.facebook.com/NewBritainBoro). Our contracted cleaner and Borough staff are taking additional efforts to disinfect the office.
Residents who need to pay for a permit or other fees can do so by calling our office and paying via credit card or mailing a check (please note we are charged a fee by the credit card processor we have to pass on).
Unless otherwise noted on our website calendar, Borough meetings will continue as scheduled. We do livestream our Council meetings on our Facebook page, and are working to invest in new equipment to improve the quality of those videos.
Per Governor Wolf’s recent declaration, non-essential businesses have been recommended to close and sit down restaurants should only offer pickup or delivery options (including the New Britain Inn, Nico’s Pizza, and Sakana Sushi). Essential businesses, including grocery stores, gas stations, and pharmacies are allowed to stay open.
In the event of office closures or major developments that specifically impact the Borough, information will be posted to this website and sent out to the Borough email list. If you are not signed up for our email list, you can do so at https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085612336#/signup
Bucks County has also set up a website with live information regarding the coronavirus at https://covid19-bucksgis.hub.arcgis.com/
