WINTER STORM UPDATE #1
Good morning. We are again under a Winter Storm Warning Sunday 4am through Sunday 7pm. Heavy snow is expected with total accumulations of 4-7 inches. The good news, if there is any with a winter storm, is that this storm will be fast moving. That being said, snowfall rates of two inches an hour are possible and travel is expected to be difficult. The track and snowfall totals are still uncertain and the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is activated and monitoring the forecast.
We remind you that all vehicles and obstructions must be removed from the roadways. Brush collection has been postponed until further notice and no lawn debris may be placed curbside.
In an abundance of caution, the COVID Testing truck will be closed Sunday. Please see the FLYER for more.
Notice of schedule adjustments will be made via email, social media, SWIFT 911, and the Town website. As some lines of communication are disrupted during a weather emergency please ensure you are registered for multiple communication methods.
