MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Town of Morristown held its virtual town hall meeting on Tuesday July 14, where Mayor Tim Dougherty provided various updates regarding social distancing.
Residents were told not to jog through South Street during dining hours as it is unhealthy for people who are eating outdoors. A study in Belgium recently revealed that athletes should be at least 12 feet apart while exercising. Runners haven’t been banned yet as Mayor Dougherty is trying to get communication out beforehand.
Small businesses are now open at 50% capacity. As long as the pandemic continues, these businesses will continue to struggle financially, Dougherty said. Morristown residents were encouraged to shop small as their support would be greatly appreciated.
Mayor Dougherty also commented on the recent storm which saw Morristown experience at least three inches of rain within an hour. Given how common this type of weather is becoming, as a result of climate change, improvements need to be considered in such areas as the sewer system, he said.
Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.
