Please see front page article in today’s Suburbanite entitled: “In address, Englewood Mayor touts alliances to help the city move forward”. Several new alliances outlined in this article will help the City continue to be strong and thriving. These new initiatives which included a partnership with the Board of Education, were stated in my State of The City address at the recent City Council meeting which was held January 20, 2015.

Dear Englewood Residents,
Thankfully we did not receive the 24-36″ of snow that was predicted. Regional leaders made decisions based on the forecasts that were available, all in the interest of public safety. Fortunately, we can now spend the day cleaning-up the snow and preparing for normal operations on Wednesday.
City Hall will re-open at 9:00 on Wednesday.
The Recycling pick-up will take place as originally scheduled tomorrow, Wednesday, January 28.
The library will re-open tomorrow at its regular time.
The municipal court will be open on Wednesday for day and evening sessions.
Recreation programs will resume when the Englewood Public Schools return to the normal schedule.
Please shovel your sidewalks. City code requires the sidewalks to be cleared 24 hours after a storm passes. We want everyone to be safe when walking around Englewood.
Thank you for your cooperation and for staying off of the roads last night as requested by the Governor and local officials.

There is expected snowfall for Monday night into Tuesday with will leave Englewood with 18 – 24 inches of snow.
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. The police will be towing cars from snow emergency streets beginning this evening.
The City will offer free parking in the downtown garage in addition to the following municipal parking lots: Liberty School, Bergen Street, James Street, Charles Street and Depot Square.

Dear Englewood residents,
There is a blizzard warning in place for Englewood from today through tomorrow evening. The National Weather Service is forecasting that we will get between 18 and 24″ of snow accumulation with some parts of Northern New Jersey receiving up to 36″ of snow. The best advice that I can offer is to stay home between 6 PM tonight and Wednesday morning. It is expected that there will be “life threatening conditions” for travel between tonight and Tuesday evening with heavy snow and winds in excess of 35 MPH. The most important thing that you can do to help everyone with this storm is to park your cars in your driveway, not on the streets. The police will be towing cars that are parked on snow emergency streets beginning tonight. To assist you with parking, you may park for free in the municipal parking deck on South Dean Street, in the parking lots at the Liberty School, James Street and Charles Street , and in the Depot Square par king lot. You may leave you cars in the lots until Wednesday evening.
Due to the storm, the Englewood Library will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. The municipal court will be closed on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. There will be no trash pick-up on Tuesday and no recycling pick-up on Wednesday. Recycling will be picked-up City wide on Thursday and Friday. All recreation programs are cancelled until the public schools reopen. The John T. Wright Arena is closed until Wednesday evening.
All resident are requested for their own safety to clear any fire hydrants that may be located near your residences.
The Office of Emergency Management will be staffed from 6 PM onwards tonight. Englewood OEM is now on Facebook and Twitter. If you have an emergency, call 911. If you have a snow or weather related issue, you can call the Emergency Operations Center from 6 PM onwards tonight. The number is (201)-567-2178.
In the event of a loss of power, please contact PSE&G at 1-800-436-7734 (PSEG). You can also learn about power outages and restoration progress on MY Account on the PSE&G website www.pseg.com.
In the event of widespread power outages, the Janis Dismus Middle School will be the designated shelter for Englewood residents. More information will be provided if necessary. The County designated “warming station” is Bergen Community College in Paramus. Englewood Hospital is “holding over” about 100 staff members. Due to this, there will not be any available parking in the hospital parking lot for area residents to use.
I will send out updates as the conditions change. Here are some important numbers that you may need during the storm:
Englewood Police: 201-568-2711
Englewood Fire Department: 201-568-6301
Department of Public Works: 201-568-3401
Englewood City Manager’s Office: 201-871-6640
Health Department: 201-568-3450
Building Department: 201-871-6642
Please be safe and careful and stay at home as much as possible. This is going to be a very long and difficult storm for the entire Northeast region of the country. Your cooperation is appreciated.

I am pleased that so many Englewood residents came out Tuesday evening to the City’s Council meeting and to hear my State of the City address.
It is critical that the Board of Education and the City government work together towards providing superior education for our students. One of my initiatives is to have Bergen Community College bring classrooms to Englewood in order to help prepare our students for college readiness.
Those that attended the meeting Tuesday evening were able to hear the accomplishments during my years in office.
I am also delighted to have had a full house at the reception that followed, where we viewed the President’s State of the Union speech. This indeed provided an opportunity for our community to join together and hear our President’s very important speech.
Please see the article in today’s Record entitled: “Englewood mayor delivers state of city”.

We are currently experiencing hazardous road conditions due to ice forming on the roads. We request that all residents refrain from driving on the roads until the conditions have improved. There is an extremely high volume of motor vehicle accidents as a result of the current weather conditions.
Please be safe.

Congratulations to honorees who have displayed the “spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. “: Bergen County Freeholder David Ganz, Filmmaker Kobie Brown, Bergen County Links and Community Leader Javalada Power. Speaker: Rev. Michael Waldron was indeed very moving.
