Upon the advice of Governor Gina Raimondo and the Rhode Island Department of Health, I have determined that extraordinary measures must be taken to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. As such, a State of Municipal Emergency has been declared for the Town of Cumberland.
At this time, the Town Hall will be closed to the public until further notice. A dropbox located at the ADA ramp entrance on the side of Town Hall is available to accept payments and to process requests for information. Please place your documents in an envelope labeled with the appropriate department and your contact information. The dropbox is monitored throughout the day, Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
Residents can also reach their desired department by telephone. A full list of department extensions is found under Town Hall at the top of this page. The main number for Town Hall is 401-728-2400.
At this time, the Town will not issue any entertainment licenses until at least April 14, 2020, and has revoked any current entertainment licenses for this same period-of-time to enforce social distancing.
All athletic fields in Cumberland are closed to the public until further notice. Both the basketball and tennis courts at Tucker Field are closed until further notice. Our parks and open spaces will be monitored by Cumberland Police to ensure compliance with limiting the size of gatherings.
If there is anything our office can do to be of service to you, please contact my Community Outreach Coordinator, Sarah King at 401-728-2400 x132.
We appreciate your patience during this challenging time. I firmly believe that we are better together. Our collective strengths as individuals and as a town will see us through this crisis.
