Thankfully, Township staff is safe and well. The Concord Township Municipal Building is open to conduct normal business; however, it is continuing to follow the recommended State and CDC guidelines with township staff working in the building and telecommuting on alternating schedules. All visitors and staff are required to follow safety protocols when entering the building. Visitors are reminded to wear face masks, keep social distance, and adhere to all signage posted at the municipal building.

Please make appointments with the Building & Codes department for permit applications. Residents with non-urgent business are encouraged to contact Township staff via email or phone.
