WINTER STORM – Update #5
Good morning. The Winter Storm Warning has expired. Snow, rain and sleet alternated through the duration of the storm. The Department of Public Works and contractors plowed our more than 200 miles of roadway all night and continues to plow and sand icy spots. Please keep off the roads. Stay home and let them finish.
This was a heavy, dense snow with layers of ice and the temperature is expected to stay below freezing today. Please note the following:
- Do not blow, shovel or plow, snow from your driveways or cars onto the roadway. It causes icing and is dangerous. Deposit snow onto grassy areas of your property.
- Parked cars and obstructions must remain off the road until the road is no longer snow covered.
- Do NOT place brush or tree branches at the curb. There is no brush collection until January. Pile them on your property until the next collection date or bring them to the Recycling Center. No permit or fee is required.
- Snow shoveling, especially heavy dense snow, can be dangerous even for healthy people. Please do not rush to clear your driveway in case there is an emergency. Our First Responders will get to you if they need to. If you must shovel, take it slow, and review these safety tips
- Please review our Tips for Snow Removal in the Recycling Calendar and
A reminder that Recycling Collection for Zone 7, scheduled for today, is postponed until Saturday. Place items curbside by 7am.
The Marlboro Division of Police are available 24/7. They can be reached by calling 732-536-0100. Emergencies dial 911. Please do not call them for storm updates. They do not have further information and it is vital that their lines are open for emergencies.
Prior storm updates can be found on the Alerts and Actions scroll on the website and on the Storm Page HERE.
I encourage the kids (and parents) who have off today, go out around your house and enjoy the snow. It’s been a little while since we all had the opportunity to feel normal. Stay safe (and warm).
Mayor Jon Hornik
