ABERDEEN – In a letter distributed to residents and business operators, Aberdeen Township Mayor Fred Tagliarini has provided an update on municipal officials’ efforts to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“This trying week may be ending, but our stand against the coronavirus still goes on. All week the Township Council members, town manager and police chief have had countless meetings and conference calls with state and local officials with a single goal in mind, which is to bring (residents) the most comprehensive information we have,” Tagliarini wrote.
He said police officers, municipal employees and public works employees are on the job providing services residents need.
“The council, the town manager, Bryan Russell, our police chief, Rick Derechailo, and I are very proud of all of our employees for the outstanding job they are doing and for their commitment to Aberdeen Township,” Tagliarini wrote.
He said officials are adhering to state and Monmouth County park policies by keeping the municipality’s parks open for passive recreation. All playground structures are closed and all organized group activities, especially those involving 10 or more participants, are temporarily prohibited.
“We have posted on the township website and the township Facebook page a list of websites and phone numbers to help all of our residents and businesses get through this difficult time,” Tagliarini said. “Please use any or all of the resources listed in order to keep informed on all updates regarding COVID-19.”
“This is all unchartered water, not only for Aberdeen Township, but for our country as a whole, but I promise we will get through this. … While on our website homepage, we urge our residents to sign up for Nixle and Code Red messages in order to get all alerts and updates.
“As everyone knows, this is a challenging time, but we are up to the challenge. Make sure to follow all hygiene (guidelines) and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. Help us flatten the curve and stay safe,” Tagliarini said.
