2020 Township Real Estate Tax Extension
On Monday, March 23, 2020, Township Council issued a proclamation regarding 2020 Township Real Estate Taxes.
Pursuant to Resolution No. 31-2020, The Emergency Declaration for Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic, Concord Township Council is deferring the time to pay 2020 Concord Township taxes as follows:
- The discount period for Township Taxes is extended to April 30, 2020;
- The payment of the face amount for Township Taxes is extended to October 31, 2020; and
- The penalty payment period for Township Taxes will not begin until November 1, 2020.
PLEASE: Only flush toilet paper down the toilet!
Many Americans appear to be following the recommendations of public health officials to clean and sterilize frequently touched surfaces in their homes. Many are then depositing disinfectant wipes, paper towels and other paper products into the toilet.
The result has been a coast-to-coast surge in backed-up sewer lines and overflowing toilets. Plumbers and public officials are pleading with Americans to spare the nation’s pipes from further strain.
Most urban sewage systems depend on gravity and water flow to move toilet paper and waste. They were not designed to accommodate disinfectant wipes and paper towels, which do not break down as easily and will clog the system.
Please, only flush toilet paper down the toilet.

PennDOT began construction in March 2017, on the first-of-two mainline projects to widen and reconstruct a 6.7-mile section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Route 452 (Market Street) in Concord, Bethel and Upper Chichester townships, Delaware County. U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) will remain open to one lane of traffic in each direction during peak travel times. Periodic flagger-controlled lane restrictions may occur Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM, for various operations as construction advances along the corridor. Work on the first mainline section (Section 101 through Concord Township) is scheduled to be completed in late 2020. Residents should allow for extra time when traveling in this area.
