Marple Township State of Emergency

Based on the current recommendations from the Commonwealth of PA and the Delaware County Emergency Management Office, Marple Township is declaring a State of Emergency beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020.   The Township Administration Building, Golf Course, Library and Township Parks will be closed to the public. These closures will remain in effect until March 30, 2020, unless dictated otherwise by the Governor’s Office.  During this emergency declaration, only township staff and elected officials will be permitted in the Municipal Building. Township personnel may be contacted through telephone and email. 


Township government will remain operational, despite these closures. All trash, recycling, and other essential public services will continue as scheduled. We will continue to post relevant information received by Delaware County and the Commonwealth on the Township Website and Cable Access Channel and the townships emergency notification system.  Please take a moment to sign up for both the Township and County Emergency Alert System (Delco Alert).

Finally, all Township public meetings have been canceled for the remainder of the month.


We will continue to monitor this situation in the upcoming days. Please continue to check the Township website and social media pages for further announcements and updates.
