Elizabethtown Borough's offices will be closed until about 12 p.m. Thursday because crews will be installing a new emergency generator. All power to Borough Hall will be shut off during the installation, meaning that employees won't be able to use phones or computers, not to mention possible safety issues of the building not having lighting for several hours.
Borough Council authorized the purchase of the generator in the 2010 budget because Borough Hall does not have any backup power source. In the event of an extended power outage in Elizabethtown, police officers would not be able to use equipment at the police station, nearly all of which is electronic and/or computerized. Borough staff also would not have been able to conduct business.
