“Just because the federal government cannot come to terms on a budget and spending plan doesn’t mean there is an impact on our operations,” Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli said. “We continue to do the work of the people by repaving roads, policing the streets, recording deeds and educating students.”
Since the beginning of the federal government shut down on Tuesday, residents have been contacting county offices and asking if county services are still available.
The answer is yes, Capelli said, and all county departments continue to run on schedule.
Residents can get in touch with any branch of county government by calling 866-CAMDENCOUNTY, or by visiting www.camdencounty.com.
The federal government shutdown entered its fourth day on Friday, with little sign of coming to an end, Reuters reports.
On Wednesday, Gov. Chris Christie trumpeted New Jersey’s bipartisanship, stating he and the State Democratic leadership wouldn't allow politics to get in the way of the state's progress. He made these comments during a groundbreaking ceremony at Rowan University.
