FIREWORKS!!!

Mayor Wallace would like to remind all Township residents that the fireworks are still on for Friday, July 3rd at the Washington Township High School complex. The fireworks will begin at dark (approximately 9 pm) and will be shot from the field behind the 9-10 wing. Vendors will be set-up in the Ganttown Road 9-10 wing parking lot. Vendors will include two ice cream trucks and two food vendors. Wendy's will also have a stand set up giving away free Chillers. Glow lights will be sold by the WTHS Basketball Booster Club. The Cub Scouts will be collecting old flags to be disposed of properly. In light of this past week's horrific storm, we hope you all enjoy the show and have a safe, happy and healthy 4th of July weekend.
------------------------------------------------------
The WT Recycling Yard is open July 2nd from 8 am to 4 pm for yard waste/brush drop off only. It will also be open Saturday, July 4th from 8 am to 2 pm for all recycling drop off including yard debris/brush. 
---------------------------------------------------
If your home has structural damage as a result of the storm, and HAS NOT been reported to township officials, please call 589-0520 ext. 218 to report it.  Thank you.
---------------------------------------------------- 

Washington Township experienced devastating property damage and many of our families experienced significant personal loss. However, despite the intensity of the storm, there were no fatalities or serious personal injury.

Local officials are urging patience with post-storm efforts to restore Washington Township. Manpower is limited.

The Mayor, along with emergency officials, has worked with the utility companies to open major roadways and restore power to the 212 households (as of Sunday night) still without power in the Township.

The Township will continue addressing the issues of the storm’s aftermath. Although most roads are clear and all intersections have working signals, trees and wires continue to fall and our neighborhoods are a mess.

The township will be focusing on debris pick up over the next several weeks. This issue will take some time to resolve.

Residents are still urged to report power outages to Atlantic City Electric 1-800-833-7476.
----------------------------------------

In an effort to help residents with property clean-up the Township will be opening up the Recycling Yard on Monday, June 29th and Tuesday, June 30th from 8 am to 3 pm for brush/yard debris drop off only.
--------------------------------------

Waste Management is picking up trash/recycling on a daily basis. They may be slightly behind schedule due to the storm, please be patient. Thank you.

-------------------------------------
Residents should be putting cut up debris in manageable pieces out at the curb, please do your best not to put out full length branches.  It should be manageable for one person to pick up. We need your help with keeping storm drains clear, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Due to the upcoming weather for the weekend, this will help alleviate some of the local flooding issues. 

REMINDER:  Debris and trees that are on your property to the curb are your responsibility.  

Electric problems should be reported to Atlantic City Electric 1-800-833-7476.

An emergency declaration has been signed by the Mayor and can be viewed by clicking here.

---------------------------------------------- 

The Township's Emergency Operations Center is activated. The WTFD, WTPD, and WT Public Works Department is working diligently. Building inspectors will be inspecting damaged homes for structural failure. If you have a tree blocking a road, on wires, or on your house please call 863-4020.
