Temporary Closure of Route 209 due to flooding

February 25, 2016

Good afternoon folks,

Due to flooding from last night and today's rain, Route 209 is closed between Toms Creek and Briscoe Mountain Road due to flooding from run-off.  We have the road open for a short time right now with rangers guiding one-lane traffic flow because an MVA on Milford Road (the alternative route) has that road closed temporarily.  Once Milford Road/2001 re-opens, 209 will once again be closed through the evening and until further notice.  

 Additionally, Route 615 in NJ is closed between Pompey Ridge Road and the Flatbrookville Bridge because of flooding.

 The Delaware River is closed until river levels receded to below 15' at the Montague gauge.  We are hovering just above that mark right now and the river is expected to crest this evening then recede.  We do not anticipate any flooding from the river.  

Follow river levels at:

Twp. Schedules Info Meeting on Earned Income Tax

 Twp. Schedules Info Meeting on Earned Income Tax
By: Bessy Gurian
Pike County Dispatch – Thursday, February 18, 2016

 DINGMANS FERRY-At their Tuesday, Feb 9 session, the Delaware Township Board of Supervisors approved holding a special information meeting on earned income tax.

The meeting, which will be open to all residents and which will be presided over by the Board of Supervisors, will provide concerned citizens with answers to questions regarding the advantages and disadvantages of an earned income tax.

 A representative from Berkheimer, the Earned Income Tax Administrator for all of Pike County, will be on hand to provide information on the workings of an earned income tax, its benefits and drawbacks, as well as answer questions from residents and the Delaware Township Board of Supervisors.

 In comments made to this publication immediately following the Feb. 9 Delaware Township meeting, Jeffrey Scheetz, Chair and Township Secretary, stated there was no commitment to an earned income tax, but did think they had an obligation to explore it.

 “We’re not hurting for money tax-wise.  We have funds coming in to do the kinds of things that township entities need to be doing…but we want to find out, is there a better way to do it?  Can we lower property taxes significantly without putting an undue burden on the people who work?”

 The information meeting will take place Wednesday, March 2nd at 7pm in the Delaware Township Municipal Building, 116 Wilson Hill Road, Dingmans Ferry.  For more information, visit the Delaware Township Website at, their official Facebook Page or the township office bulletin board.

Other items approved by the Board of Supervisors included the purchase of a $14,000 roller from Medical Industries to replace the existing rollers owned by the township, as well as a letter of support to Representative Tom Marino regarding HR3630 legislation as it pertains to U.S. Route 209.
