Hamburg votes on rules to govern borough-owned security cameras

As Pennsylvania continues to emerge from the coronavirus mitigation measures, two state lawmakers who represent Berks County are reopening the doors to their district offices.

Sen. Dave Argall and Rep. Jerry Knowles announced Thursday that since the Hamburg Municipal Center is reopening next week the district office the two men share at the center will also welcome back visitors.

The district office is set to reopen Wednesday.

The municipal center had been closed to the public in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the highly contagious disease while continuing to provide services to their constituents over the phone and through email.

The district office will be open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to assist with any state-related issues residents may have. For assistance outside those hours, constituents can call 610-562-3411 or visit the lawmakers' official websites.

Argall and Knowles said their staff members will be strictly adhering to state Department of Health guidelines regarding cleaning, social distancing and mask wearing.

They said that this move is to ensure that their offices are as responsive as possible to constituent inquiries as Pennsylvanians continues to grapple with the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lengthy shutdown it has caused.
