In an effort to maintain social distancing and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Moore Township Board of Supervisors held a virtual meeting via telephone April 7.
Township Manager Nick Steiner, Chairman Daniel Piorkowski and Police Chief Gary West were at the municipal building during the meeting. Throughout the meeting, they reportedly kept their distance as required by the governor.
The virtual meeting, attended by an estimated 10 people, lasted about 20 minutes.
(Please note that, as many municipal buildings are closed to the public at this time, these meetings may be available via teleconference.)
