Dear resident:

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for our area beginning Monday, January 23 at 3:00am until 9:00pm. Winds are expected to gust as high as 55MPH with the strongest winds expected to occur during the day on Monday. Periods of heavy rain and possible flooding are also expected.

Before evening today, please secure or store any loose items such as garbage cans, flower pots, lawn ornaments, etc. as they can become dangerous projectiles in high winds. Keep your electronics fully charged in case of power outages. Travel may become difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.

We remind you that Lt. Cherbini, Acting Coordinator for the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management has suspended all curbside brush pickup until further notice. No brush or other lawn debris may be placed curbside.

The Mayor’s office has been in contact with JCP&L. They are on alert and have additional resources available should outages occur. High winds can cause downed power lines and tree limbs. We remind you that power outages should be reported directly to JCP&L using one of the many methods available. You may call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report your outage, click here to report your outage online or here for text messaging. Outage information is also available on JCP&L’s 24/7 Power Center Maps and on the JCP&L Facebook page. Please immediately report downed wires to JCP&L or the Marlboro Division of Police. Never go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity.

Updates, if needed, will be made through Township emails, the website and Social Media pages. Please see 'Communications for Residents' to sign up for any or all of the communication options.

As always, the Marlboro Police are available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100. For emergencies, please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.

Mayor Jon Hornik
