South Brunswick mayor offers words of encouragement to residents

SOUTH BRUNSWICK – South Brunswick Mayor Charles Carley assured his residents that together, they will get through the coronavirus crisis.

“I’m proud of how our community has come together to face this unprecedented challenge. Families are practicing social distancing, tending to the needs of those who are unable to help themselves, keeping each other in good spirits, working, teaching and learning from afar, all of which we have come to expect of our amazing community. Thank you for doing what needs to be done to defeat this pandemic,” he said in a statement on March 25.

Each afternoon the Middlesex County Health Department notifies South Brunswick officials of the most recent positive cases in the township. On March 25, there were three new positive cases: a male in his 20s and a male in his 30s are both recovering at home, while a male in his 70s remains at an area hospital for treatment, according to the statement.

While there are mandated closures of gun dealerships and fingerprinting facilities, South Brunswick is still accepting new applications. The police department will do its best to process applications as quickly as possible, but delays are expected, according to the statement.
For residents with a currently open Firearms ID Card or handgun permit application, you have a choice to put your application on hold until notice of resumed services so that your permits will not expire prior to the re-opening of these establishments, according to the statement. Email a request to postpone to lpyne@sbtnj.net

Since the municipal building is currently closed to the public, once an application process has been completed and the cards or permits are ready, residents will be sent an email with instructions on how to receive documents.
