BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- As the state gradually starts the process of reopening, the Township of Bloomfield has begun making accommodations for businesses and residents to drop off documents at the municipal building beginning Monday, May, 18. Non-essential construction will also be permitted to resume on Monday at 6:00am as long as all COVID-19 safety procedures can be followed.  

“On Monday, construction projects and non-essential retail businesses will start to resume operations and Town Hall will be partially opened as we slowly get back to normal,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “In both cases, safety procedures implemented for COVID-19 must be followed so that we do not risk further spreading the virus. We want to keep everyone safe and continue to flatten the curve as we restart our local economy.”   

Previously, residents or businesses had to drop off documents at the Police headquarters. “With the return of municipal employees to their offices, we are able to accommodate drop off at the municipal building directly,” said the Mayor.

Visits to Town Hall should be restricted to essential reasons only. This includes drop offs of any document, permits, tax/water payments or a request that needs to be submitted to any town hall department. No one will be allowed in Town Hall without a mask and no office visits will be allowed.
