SPARTA, NJ- The Sparta Township Manager Bill Close has announced township will be “restricting public access to all municipal buildings” beginning Thursday.  The restriction will continue “during regular office hours” through April 3.

Close’s notice says this is being done to “minimize person-to-person interaction.” Municipal business will be conducted by phone and online.

There are two drop box options at the municipal building.  There is a drive-thru drop box located in the lower parking lot near the entrance to the Police Department Headquarters.  A small wall mounted bulk drop box is next to the door of the Police Department.  Payments, permits and applications may be left in the box.
