On March 13th, Mayor Tony Campuzano signed a Declaration of Emergency. This Declaration was signed to allow Lansdowne Borough to be reimbursed by the County, State, and/or Federal governments during the current emergency caused by the Coronavirus. Also, the Declaration of Emergency allows the Borough to spend money on necessary supplies and allows the Mayor and Borough Council to meet on special notice without violating the Sunshine Act.
Lansdowne Borough Council will still meet on Wednesday, March 18th at 7:00 PM for an abbreviated meeting to conduct essential and necessary business; however, the reports normal for a General Business meeting will be postponed until the next General Business Meeting.
In recognition of the quickly changing circumstances caused by the Coronavirus, ALL nonessential Borough facilities will be cancelled or postponed, including all boards, commissions, and extra library programming until further notice.
