Galloway Township's municipal complex will be closed on Monday, Oct. 29 due to Hurricane Sandy, Atlantic County officials announced late Sunday morning. Only essential personnel will be asked to report.
"This includes dispatchers, public works employees and police officers," Galloway Office of Emergency Management Coordinator Michael Brandenberger confirmed Sunday morning.
The Township Office of Emergency Management continues to prepare for the coming storm, Brandnberger said. The township will continue to provide information as it becomes available.
Atlantic County government offices will be closed on Monday, the county announced Sunday afternoon. This includes the 10 county library branches, which includes Galloway.
Additionally, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) will close on Monday, Oct. 29 and Tuesday, Oct. 30 because of Hurricane Sandy, county officials announced late Sunday morning.
There will be no recycling and yard waste collection on these days, county officials added.
There are no plans currently in place to make up those days, and collection services will take place on the next regularly scheduled collection day, county officials said.
County officials advised residents to secure all trash and recycling containers, and to cover all receptacles. Keeping rain out of the containers will keep disposal costs lower once the materials are collected, county officials said.
All county public health clinics scheduled for Monday, including the public flu shot clinic at Congregation Beth Israel in Northfield, are canceled, according to county officials.
The ACUA Scalehouse and Transfer Station will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, and the ACUA's Delilah Road Landfill will not accept waste or recycling until at least Wednesday, according to county officials.
ACUA Wastewater Operations will be closed and will not be providing service after 3 pm on Sunday, Oct. 28, county officials said.
The ACUA will be operating the Wastewater Facility and the Wastewater Collection Systems, but ACUA will not be accepting sludge, septage or any other materials at the facility after that time, county officials said.
