FAQ: Township Clean-Up Days: Still On?

Question:
Now that we are moving into the yellow phase of restriction have you heard anything about Barrett Town clean-up days? The next one is scheduled for June 6th, but I'm not sure if that date still is valid. I tried to call Pam in Maintenance but the office is still closed. Any idea? Thanks!

(Meeting was held last week)

Notes from meeting:

  • Monroe County is not receiving any State funds for the project - entirely self funded
  • No funds set aside - borrowing (bonds)
  • During meeting stated that it has been determined that this project will not affect the overall tax rate

Update 5/20/20 @ 10:30:
I did some more research on the 2020 Census and it seems the driver in our area is likely part of the "Update Leave" part of the census, where they send drivers to areas without postal service.  However, the strange part is our area ALSO received those postcards.  Not sure why this happened, it should only be one or the other during this phase of the census.  FYI, the actual "Door knocking" part of the census begins on August 11, 2020.

Update 5/19/20 @ 8:40am - Message from neighbor:
Nate: This Census dude actually is a big question mark. I filed a police report on him. He dropped off somebody else's census on my porch. I drove around the neighborhood until I found the house it belonged to, and delivered it. He came back THE NEXT DAY and was attempting to come up my driveway to drop off another packet. I chased him off, but then grew suspicious. He has been wandering around the area for several days now. Since you obtained a picture of his car, I'm turning it over to the police to investigate.

 

Original Article:

Why are Census workers driving around, against "social distancing" orders, not wearing masks, in a "red county"?  

I was surprised, let's say, when this 2020 Census worker pulled into my driveway on Saturday May 16, around 4pm. 

Further, we had already completed the census online, on April 2nd!  He had no reason to even pull in. 

"I want the governor to see firsthand what type of businesses he is turning his back on without consideration. Big box stores are continuing to gain revenue while small businesses, which can offer the similar services, are shuttered and so close to never opening their doors again. I have a flooring company that can’t sell tile, but Home Depot and Lowes can? Our small businesses and their employees need a government that works smart and they continue to have my support."

 

Brown Submits ‘How We Can Do Business Safely’ Documents to Wolf Administration from Local Businesses

Working in coordination with local businesses and township officials, I sent Gov. Tom Wolf, Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine and Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin a letter which includes documents and “real world” examples from many business owners in the district illustrating how they plan to open safely to protect their customers and employees.
