WINTER STORM STELLA PRODUCED SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION OF 12 INCHES. A STATE OF EMERGENCY HAD BEEN DECLARED BY GOVERNOR CHRISTIE AND ALL STATE, COUNTY AND MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES WERE CLOSED. ALL SB PUBLIC SCHOOLS WERE CANCELLED AS WELL.

THE HEAVY SNOWFALL HAS BEGUN TO DIMINISH AND LIGHT SNOW AND DRIZZLE IS PRESENT. THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE IS 28 DEGREES AND IS FORECASTED TO DROP TO THE LOWER 20'S OVERNIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE 20'S AND 30'S FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AT LEAST.

THE TOWNSHIP DPW PERSONNEL HAVE BEEN PLOWING STREETS SINCE EARLY THIS MORNING AND WILL CONTINUE TO PLOW THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND UNTIL THE STREETS HAVE BEEN CLEARED.

WE THANK ALL THOSE RESIDENTS AND OTHERS WHO HAD REMOVED THEIR VEHICLES FROM THE ROADWAYS AS REQUIRED SO THAT THE PLOWS COULD CLEAR THE STREETS OF THE SNOW. THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HAD ISSUED APPROXIMATELY 60 TICKETS TO VEHICLES WHICH WERE PARKED IN THE ROADWAYS DURING THE SNOWSTORM AND IN VIOLATION OF THE TOWNSHIP ORDINANCE.

AS A REMINDER, WHEN CLEARING SNOW FROM DRIVEWAYS AND SIDEWALKS, PLACE THE SNOW WITHIN YOUR PROPERTY LIMITS AND NOT BACK INTO THE STREET.

IF A FIRE HYDRANT IS LOCATED NEAR YOUR PROPERTY, PLEASE CLEAR THE SNOW AROUND THE HYDRANT SO IT IS VISIBLE AND ACCESSIBLE FROM THE STREET.
