While we love having our residents visit Town Hall, The Borough of Wharton is working to provide service for our residents and ensure the safety of Borough employees and members of the general public during the current national health pandemic.

Effective, Tuesday March 17th, and until further notice, Borough Hall will be closed to all public access.

Only employees and officials will be allowed to enter. We will remain staffed and will provide services via phone, email, postal mail, the Borough’s website at www.whartonnj.com, and by utilizing our drop box located in the vestibule on West Central Ave.

We have put together a list of Town Hall services and how you can still accomplish them while Town Hall is closed to public access. For the list click here. (Updated 3/26/20)
