MILLTOWN, NJ - Borough offices will remain open, but employees will be working remotely from now through May 1. The change in borough operations came on the heels of employees recently testing positive for the coronavirus. Business Administrator Jeanette M. Larrison made the announcement via a Nixle advisory on Tuesday.

A list of all borough departments and contact information is available on the Milltown Borough website. Residents can also call the borough offices and leave a message. Messages will be checked periodically throughout the day. However, residents will not be able to receive an immediate response from a telephone call.
