The Mayor and Council of the Borough of Oaklyn believe that every individual deserves to live his/her/their life with dignity, integrity, equality and respect. We unequivocally support everyone’s basic human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We strive to create a community where all people feel safe, valued and welcome.
I would like to clarify a few things regarding Borough operations. The Borough Hall IS OPEN. Employees are working Monday thru Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Fridays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (normal operating hours). All Borough services continue as usual.
We urge all residents, that if they need to come to the Borough Hall (you must wear a mask) to call ahead so we know you are coming. There is a bell to ring on the front door but calling ahead helps. We also have drop boxes at the front door and back door, both are on surveillance cameras so they are secure, any payments, forms or permits can be dropped off in either box.
Tax information-856-858-2457 ext. 6003
Construction/Zoning-856-858-2457 ext. 6001
All other information-856-858-2457 ext.6002
Municipal Court-856-858-0074 ext. 6013

If you do need to come to the Borough Hall, the front door, on the White Horse Pike, is for Borough business. The back door, off the parking lot, is for Municipal Court business.
Also, as of today, Wednesday, July 1st, the only Solicitors Permits that are valid are for Mister Softee. David Skow, Jordyn Smith and Connor Stern all have valid permits that will expire on September 13, 2020. The Borough urges everyone to call the police if a solicitor knocks on your door and does not have a permit. ASK to see the permit. The solicitor’s information should be on the front and on the back of the card is my signature, in GREEN INK, with the Borough seal. If you would like to be added to the “Do Not Knock” registry, please fill out the request form. We will then send you a sticker to display on your front door or window. Also, if you are on the registry and a solicitor knocks on your door please call the police. They are warned of this ordinance when applying for a permit. Solicitors violating this ordinance could face up to a $1,000 fine.
If you have ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL THE BOROUGH OFFICES.
Stay Safe Everyone!
Bonnie Taft, Borough Administrator
