March 18, 2020

Dear East Greenwich Residents,

Pursuant to the Governor’s State of Emergency Executive Order and Directives from the CDC and the Township’s Joint Insurance Fund (“JIF”), ALL public parks and playgrounds shall be closed effective March 19, 2020. The Township recognizes that this is an inconvenience but must be done for the benefit of the public health. Please do not go around the barricades and gates, the Police Department will enforce the closing.

Notice will be provided when parks and playgrounds may reopen.

Additionally, effective immediately Logan Township has suspended the picking up of Bulk Trash, Metal/Electronic waste and Extra Recycling. I know this will cause a strain on our Residents, but as Public Officials we must take every precaution necessary to protect you and the spread of this virus.

Please be patient and please be safe.

Dale L. Archer, Mayor of East Greenwich Twp.
