Attention Residents – There will be a detour around the 200 block of Madison Avenue on Monday, May 16th due to water valve replacement work by the Muhlenberg Water Authority. Detours will be clearly marked. Emergency services, Mail carriers and School buses will be permitted through the work zone to negate any disruption of services. We thank you in advance for your patience.

Meet the Chief -
In effort to improve on our community dialogue, the Board of Commissioners agreed to host an informal monthly meeting with the Chief of Police. Each month there will be a set day and time established to meet and talk, informally with the Chief of Police, about quality of life issues and concerns that you may have as a resident of Muhlenberg Township. We are aware that the public portion section at the monthly Commissioners meeting limits any discussion to five (5) minutes, therefore this information meeting is the time for these Residents to bring their concerns to our attention. Meet Chief Grunzig Thursday May 5th from 5-7 p.m. in the Commissioners meeting room at 210 George Street. All are welcome and we look forward to meeting you.

Attention Residents
- Mt Laurel Road, a State owned and maintained street, will be closed to all traffic just east of Hill Crest Ave due to bridge repair work by PennDOT. Road closure start(s)(ed) for an unspecified period. Please plan your route accordingly.  The Township will post an update when this route is open again. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
