The Snow Removal Plan calls for the Borough to be divided into sections. Each section is assigned a driver and a specific piece of equipment to plow and remain in that section until all roadways have been sufficiently cleared. This may require the snow removal vehicle to make multiple passes on each street. Borough Snow Removal Vehicles will plow each street curb to curb during each snowfall. On occasion, due to the lack of areas between the sidewalk and curb, sidewalks and driveway aprons may become covered with snow. Borough Snow Removal Vehicles will not remove snow from any sidewalk or driveway apron.

Within each section, the major collection streets and roadways are attended to first with the residential streets following. This prioritization is based on identifying primary accesses, emergency response needs and school bus routes. Local streets, and particularly cul-de-sac streets, are plowed after primary streets have been cleared. The local streets carry the least amount of traffic and must be serviced in accordance with that factor. The Borough is aware that your street is important to you. The Public Works Department is committed to continue providing excellent snow removal service.

If you experience a power outage, please call PSE&G directly at 1-800-436-7734.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this winter event.
