The Middletown Township Economic Reopening Taskforce, comprised of local business leaders and elected officials, has been working to provide assistance for businesses in the Middletown Township community.
The Taskforce created a public information campaign, “Middletown Safe,” to spread the word that businesses are opening back up again.
The Township is providing further support to local businesses by pausing the business fire inspection program and waiving permit fees to businesses for tent and outdoor dining.
Sign packages including floor decals, yard signs, and fliers are available at no cost to businesses in Middletown Township. Businesses can pick up sign packages at the Middletown Township Municipal Center; Robin Kemmerer Associates, Inc., in Levittown; and Inspire Federal Credit Union in Langhorne.
We would like to thank Robin Kemmerer and Missy Kitzmiller for their assistance distributing these sign packages.
As the Middletown Township business community recovers from the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Fire & Emergency Management has paused its business fire inspection program for the remainder of the year.
Businesses will now be asked to perform and self-report a safety walk-through of their establishment. As part of this temporary change, the Township will not be collecting any fees for the remainder of the year.
We understand the significant economic and emotional impact COVID-19 has had on our community and are committed to doing everything in our power to give our businesses the best chance at survival. While fire safety and preparedness remain a priority to the Township, this temporary change will provide financial relief to businesses during a time when it is needed most.
Businesses will still be required to submit a fire alarm and sprinkler testing certification, an emergency light test certification, proof of fire extinguisher service, among other documents.
These steps will keep employees and the community safe, and meet the requirements of most businesses’ insurance carriers.
