Coronavirus Pandemic Municipal Services Update

Due to the world-wide Coronavirus pandemic, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has declared a State of Emergency.  Out of an abundance of caution, the Town of Harrison is taking the following precautions in the interests of public health:

  • Effective immediately, the Harrison Public Library, Community Center, and Senior Citizen Center will be closed to the public.  These buildings will continue to be staffed for emergency operations as necessary.
  • Effective immediately, all Harrison Municipal Court sessions will be cancelled through and including the April 1, 2020 session.  Court personnel will be available to accept payment of fines, and to handle administrative issues such as scheduling.
  • The Harrison Town Hall will be staffed, but will only be open to the public for emergent matters such as vital statistics, construction permits, and payment of taxes.  All non-emergent matters will be deferred until further notice.
  • The Police and Fire Departments will be staffed and open to the public as usual.
  • Effective immediately, all Harrison Recreation sports and events, including swimming, soccer, and cheerleading, are cancelled.
  • The Meal-on Wheels program will continue as usual.  If you are in need of this service, please call 973-268-2463.
  • The Harrison Public School system is currently open as usual.  Please standby for updates, and consult the school’s website at

We will keep you informed as the situation changes.  Please check the Town’s website at

Any questions may be directed to the Harrison Town Hall by dialing 973-268-2425.

Thank you for your cooperation during these trying times.
