Good day Citizens of Parkside

Two items of interest:

1. The auxiliary voting box will be installed here in Parkside within the next several days. It will be located between the Borough Hall and the Borough Garage at 22 East Elbon Road. It is the size of a postal street collection box. There will be a tower next to the box with a solar panel at the top. This will provide power to the security camera which will monitor the collection box. I am told that the box will be available 24/7 and will be emptied once a day up until 8:00 PM on election day when it will be locked until the primary in 2021. The box and tower will remain in place for 5 years.

2. Within the next several days, you should be getting the 2020 Fire Department fund drive letter. As you may already know, our Fire Company suffered a severe financial hit when the parent company of Crozer -Chester Medical Center demanded a monthly stipend of $31,000.00 from the Fire Company to permit the organization to provide ambulance service. Members of the Fire Company negotiated in good faith but CCMC refused to accept any amount less than the $31,000.00. The firefighters are committed to the protection of life and safety in Parkside. I would ask that you please be generous in your donation.

 **A message to the residents of Parkside from the Parkside Police Department**

The current concern regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an unprecedented health issue impacting our communities. The event has created the need for the Emergency Services Personnel to take several precautions while maintaining our level of service to the community. With that in mind, the Parkside Borough Police Department will adhere to the following modifications to our response and interaction with our residents.

Officers who receive a radio report of an incident will review all information provided by the 911 center to determine the proper response. Some calls will continue to require our officers to respond and take appropriate action. In these cases, that is exactly what they will do. In other cases, the officer may call the individual back via telephone to ascertain the issue at hand. In those cases, the officer may determine that he can gather sufficient information via the phone to file the proper report. Officers may give answers to questions or provide advice to residents, make a report and not respond to your residence or business depending on the circumstances.

When responding to your calls, officers may request that you step outside to speak with them. This is done in order to maintain social distancing and limit the potential to exposure. Our goal is to continue to serve the residents of Parkside while at the same time protecting our officers and their families. Should one of our officers become exposed to the coronavirus the impact could have a severe impact on our ability to serve you. With this in mind, we ask for your understanding and cooperation during these difficult times.


Thank you Thomas J. Murray Jr. Chief of Police

Announcement from 

Shirley Purcival, President of Council.

Dear Parkside Residents,                                                           March 9, 2020

As President of Council, I would like to inform you that Delaware County Council and Emergency Services held a conference call with local officials in which Vice President Doug Bull, Code Officer Nick Capobianco, Chief Murray and myself were able to participate in.  Delaware County Council, for financial and Emergency personnel reasons, has declared a State of Emergency due to the situation with Covid-19  (Coronavirus).  This Declaration will enable the County to spend money on emergency supplies, meet unbudgeted costs that occur with this virus and also apply for any State and/or Federal funds, if made available, to recoup any unbudgeted funds.

 As of today, Delaware County has one confirmed case.  The County offices and Court system are open.  School districts are open and each school district will make the call to or when to close, based on any contamination.  As of now, there is no need to close any schools but the County has asked all residents to follow the safety guidelines that have been stated on numerous newscasts, internet, and social media.

If you or your family members are elderly or have underlining health issues,  please avoid large gatherings.  As we have heard, symptoms could be a heavy chest with a dry cough and shortness of breath, body aches and a temperature of 100.4. The county is asking, that if you have these symptoms not to immediately go to the emergency room.    They have asked that you contact 1-877-Pa-health.   The State Board of Health will question you as to your symptoms and will direct you to the emergency services equipped to test you.  If you do call "911" they will be asking you the same questions and direct you to the State Board of Health.  

Please be assured that our emergency personnel will be taking safety precautions and our Borough council will continually be updated on any changes with this virus.  You may also check the Delaware County website for information as to what is open, what changes are forthcoming and general questions concerning the coronavirus.

Thank you.   Shirley Purcival, President of Council
