Update on Snow Clean-up/Removal Operations

Mayor Michael Giordano wishes to inform residents and businesses that massive snow clean-up and removal operations are continuing throughout the Borough. Additional resources from private companies have been brought in to assist this effort. The Mayor thanks all residents for their cooperation in refraining from driving and parking on the streets.

In order to continue the cleanup efforts please note that vehicles parked on signed snow emergency streets are being ticketed and towed as cleanup operations proceed, and will continue to be ticketed and towed until all those designated streets are cleared.

The Mayor and Police Chief have determined that street cleaning regulations will be suspended through Wednesday, January 27. Beginning Thursday, January 28 the regulations will go back into effect to facilitate further snow clearing operations.

Sidewalks must be cleared of snow for the safety of children and pedestrians. Property owners whose sidewalks remain snow covered are subject to fines.

Please help protect yourself, your family and your property, by clearing snow from around fire hydrants.

Make sure all your furnace, hot water heater and dryer vents are clear of snow to prevent deadly carbon monoxide gases from backing up into your home. The same applies to your vehicle's exhaust pipes.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and be extra careful for pedestrians and schoolchildren who may be walking in the streets. Motorists also need to be careful of blind corners and driveways, and re-freezing of roadway surfaces.

Mayor Giordano would like to express his gratitude for the patience, determination and helpfulness of all residents as we continue recovery operations from this historic storm.
