COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Discouraging Non-Essential Travel
March 15, 2020

Limiting non-essential travel is key to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Mayor Barbarann Keffer and her administration have taken important steps to protect residents and employees. The Township Government will continue to provide services, but the Upper Darby Township Municipal Building will be closed to the public for 48 hours on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17. All employees are expected to report as usual.

Residents are strongly encouraged to utilize phone (610-352-4100), email (requests@upperdarby.org), and the Township website (www.upperdarby.org) to conduct Township business.

1. Mayor Keffer will be calling upon Township Council to extend the deadline to receive the 2% discount on municipal taxes to April 30th. This will allow property owners who prefer to pay their municipal taxes in person the opportunity to do so until the end of April. In the meantime, property owners are strongly encouraged to submit their tax payments by mail to:

Upper Darby Township
100 Garrett Road
Room 102
Upper Darby, PA 19082

2. Parking Tickets should be paid online at www.upperdarby.org/payticket or by mail.

3. In accordance with guidance provided by State and County officials, any public meetings convened by the Township during this time period will be physically closed to the public while still providing for real-time two-way public comment and participation. Mayor Keffer, Council President Wentz, and the Administration have made arrangements to have the Wednesday, March 18th Council Meeting live-streamed so that the public can listen and participate virtually in compliance with the PA Sunshine Act. Full details will be announced at www.upperdarby.org/covid19 shortly.

4. The free Tax Prep event scheduled for March 19th is cancelled. Campaign for Working Families, the organization coordinating this event, is taking safety precautions to protect their clients by postponing tax site operations until at least 3/30. Residents may follow up after this date for more information. Mayor Keffer reminds the public to stay calm, stay home, and stay safe. She thanks the community for doing their part to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
