WINTER STORM #3-3
The Marlboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) continues to track a weather event which is expected to bring rain to our area today, changing over to snow by late evening into the overnight hours. The National Weather Service has revised its forecast and is now predicting less than an inch of snow accumulation for our area. Although minimal accumulation is now forecasted, rain and snow followed by a prolonged period of freezing temperatures will result in hazardous travel conditions. Based upon this most recent forecast, Public Works crews are scheduled to begin applying salt to the roads late this evening allowing sufficient time to cover the entire Town in advance of the falling temperatures. As always, Public Works will adjust as necessary based on actual (as opposed to ‘forecasted’) conditions.
As a reminder, the OEM has declared that effective immediately NO ADDITIONAL BRUSH MAY BE PLACED CURBSIDE until further notice. If you live in a zone currently scheduled for collection and have brush curbside, you may leave it in place. The Department of Public Works (DPW) will continue to collect brush already curbside for as long as possible.
In order to stay informed, visit www.Marlboro-nj.gov and click ‘Communications for Residents’ (top right button) to register for multiple lines of communication. In addition, register your home and cell phones for emergency SWIFT 911 notifications. Most home phones are inoperable if a power outage occurs. The Marlboro Police and OEM deliver urgent updates via SWIFT 911. As per Town Ordinance, we remind you that vehicles may not be parked in the roadways when the road is snow covered.
We will continue to monitor the weather and provide updates as more information becomes available. Thank you and stay safe.
Mayor Jon Hornik
