During this challenging time, your Supervisors want to keep you informed about the state of our Township. In response to the Governor's executive order, mandating all non-life-sustaining businesses to close as of 8:00PM on March 19, 2020, the LBT Public Works crew will be working on call for emergencies only. State Police, fire protection and emergency services will continue as usual, in addition to sanitation services for our one community on lot system and the plant at the Shoppes of London Britain. Our office staff is working remotely to address any concerns you may have. Following the Governor's order, we have now suspended issuance of building and zoning permits.
In closing, please understand that we are taking this situation very seriously and our primary concern is the safety and well-being of all our London Britain residents. We ask you to follow the Governor's guidelines and take good care of your families.
