12 February 2014 10 views No Comment

Dear Residents,

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow, which is in effect from midnight tonight to 6am Friday, February 14, 2014. The anticipated accumulation is between 10 and 14 inches and temperatures well be in the upper 20’s.

If you are able to park in your driveways, please do so to assist in the street cleaning process. Street parking will make it extremely difficult for plows to maneuver through streets that are narrow and have snow banks from the past winter storm.

During this time, the City will be offering free overnight parking in the Downtown Parking Garage for all residents beginning tonight at 6pm until Friday, 2/14 at 6pm. Please note that the roof deck of the parking garage will be closed. There will also be additional parking in the Liberty School parking lot.

Garbage collection will also be suspended Thursday and Friday and will resume its regular schedule next week.

During the storm, the Police and Public Works Departments will be working to enforce snow parking restrictions as per City Ordinance § 25-21 Parking During Snow Accumulation. The following streets are not to be parked on while the streets are snow covered:

. Grand Avenue

. Engle Street

. Dean Street

. Palisade Avenue

. Dana Place

. Broad Avenue

. Van Brunt Street

. West & East Englewood Avenue

. Lafayette Place

. Lafayette Avenue

. West Forest Avenue

. East Linden Avenue

. Jones Road

. Lydecker Street

. Booth Avenue

. West Hudson Avenue

. Tenafly Road

. Knickerbocker Road

. Liberty Road

. Van Nostrand Avenue

. William Street

. North & South Woodland Avenue

We urge residents on the above streets to take advantage of the free garage parking. The Police Department will ensure that the ordinance is enforced which may subject those in violation to tickets, tows and/or fines.

Please use extreme caution throughout the day tomorrow.

Regards,

Mayor Frank Huttle
