WOOD-RIDGE, NJ -- As of Monday, March 23, visitors to Wood-Ridge Borough Hall and the Wood-Ridge Police Station will need an appointment.
Governor Murphy’s Executive Order #107 closing non-essential retail businesses does not apply to government services, but does require that social distancing protocols be followed, especially in indoor settings.
Wood-Ridge Mayor Paul Sarlo announced that Borough Hall and the Police Station will both be closed to visitors without an appointment as of Monday, March 23. 99% of government services can be provided over the phone or through email. These include administrative matters related to building permits, tax payments, and marriage and pet licenses as well as police matters such as taking and issuing reports of accidents and complaints. Appointments will be granted for matters requiring an in-person visit only after first calling Borough Hall or the Police Station and speaking to someone about the issue.
Borough Hall’s phone number is 201-939-0202 and press option 2.
The Police Station’s non-emergency number is 201-939-0476. Dial 9-1-1 for emergencies.
Sarlo also asked residents to please use common sense before contacting the Borough Hall or Police Station. If the matter is not urgent or time-sensitive and can wait until a later date, please refrain from calling so that personnel can respond to more pressing matters.
The restriction to visitors does not apply to residents attending publicly advertised meetings of the Mayor and Council and other Boards and Commissions. However, social distancing procedures will be followed at all meetings with many members calling into the meetings. Additionally, meetings will be canceled if there is no pressing business on the agenda. The public will be notified of all meeting cancellations.
