Winter Storm Toby #1
March 20, 2018
Marlboro is under a winter storm warning beginning at 6pm tonight until Thursday at 2:00 am. Our area is expected to receive 12-18” of snow, with most of the snow expected during the day on Wednesday. Thunder snow, difficult travel conditions, possible power outages, and significant reductions in visibility are expected. The Marlboro OEM is monitoring conditions, our Department of Public Works is fully staffed and, and we have been in contact with JCP&L and it has activated their storm plan.
We remind you of the following:
- Please remove vehicles and all other items (basketball hoops, garbage cans, etc.) from the roadways. This allows the plows to clear more effectively, and reduces the likelihood of damage to vehicles.
- Brush may not be placed in the road as it causes flooding, traffic safety issues and interferes with snow removal. Brush should always be placed on your property on the house-side of the curb. If you have brush on the street, please take this time to move as much of it as you can off the road.
- It bears repeating that having multiple lines of communication between the township and our residents is important. If you have not done so already, visit the Marlboro Website and sign up for Township Email Alerts. Please click HERE to register your home and cell phones for Police SWIFT 911 calls (police automated messages via phone). Most home phones stop working if there is a power outage so it is important to register your cell phone.
- Follow the Township Facebook page @marlborotownship, Twitter @MarlboroTwp, as well as my Facebook page.
The on-line 'Surviving the Snow' brochure and in the center of your recycling calendar provides easy access to emergency phone numbers and websites. Please print it and post in your home for quick reference.
- Check the Township website STORM UPDATES for past preparedness information.
In the meantime, please prepare. Make sure your phones are charged, have all medications, baby/child needs, fill your tank with gas, and check Ready.gov for more ways to keep your families safe. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance. We will update you as more is available.
