Coronavirus Update 45
July 9, 2020
I hope everyone is doing well and staying cool. I wanted to take a moment and share the following Marlboro Township and New Jersey updates, news and events.
Parks – Township playgrounds reopened on July 2. Public restrooms at Vanderburg and the Municipal Complex are open and port-a-johns have been placed at parks and ballfields. Restrooms and playgrounds will be sanitized daily. Signs reminding residents to help stop the spread of COVID-19 are placed throughout our Town in parks and public areas. HERE
Litter - We are finding large amounts of litter, including bottles, cans, masks and gloves left at our parks and fields. Garbage cans are available at every park location. Not only is litter unsightly and against the law, it is dangerous, leaving potentially contaminated items that must be cleaned up by our Public Works Department employees. We are asking everyone to please respect your neighbors and our shared spaces and leave our parks clean and thank you for your cooperation.
Marlboro Paper Shredding – Saturday, July 11 from 9am to 1pm (or until the truck is filled) for Marlboro residents only. Please remove all staples and clips, 100 pound limit enforced. Please stay in your car and put on your mask when approached. FLYER

Seating will begin at 7:45pm and the movie will start at dusk. Bring chairs/blankets, movie snacks and beverages. Face coverings will be required while not seated.

March-May extended to 7/31, June 30 expiration extended to 8/31 and 7/31 expiration extended to 9/30. It is suggested that residents take advantage of the extended time to let crowds clear. Many services can be done on-line. Check https://www.state.nj.us/mvc/ before you go for important changes and transactions available to be completed online.
Restaurants and Fitness Centers - I want to remind everyone that some of our fitness centers have outdoor programs and, as per the Governor’s Executive Order 157, have begun to do inside training by appointment. Please contact your fitness center for details. Marlboro restaurants continue to offer takeout and delivery, and some restaurants have opened for outside dining. The list of Marlboro Fitness Centers and Restaurants offering outside services can be found HERE.
Lastly, a quick reminder that the Marlboro Farmers Market is open this Sunday and every Sunday, rain or shine from 9am to 2pm.
