[ARCHIVED] Mayor and Council BLIZZARD Winter Storm Message #3

Dear Residents;

First and foremost we want to thank our residents for heeding all the warnings broadcasted by State, County and local officials and staying off the roads.

Nor'easter Jonas is packing a big punch and living up to its expectations.
We are currently experiencing very little power outages. JCP&L crews have responded but it is unclear at this point how long power will remain out in these areas.

Our Emergency Operations Center has been activated since 12:00PM. If you have a non emergency or you need assistance please call the EOC Help Desk at 732-414-3239. If you have an emergency call 911.

At this time we strongly recommend that you adhere to the emergency driving ban in place and not try to drive. Visibility is poor with blowing snow and roads are still impassable in many places.

Many of our tertiary and development roadways are in poor conditions due to the amount of constant snow falling and high winds blowing the heavy snow back into the roadways. Everyone is trying their best to clear the roadways but the priority for now is being given to the major and primary roads. This is a work in progress as our dedicated DPW crews will begin rotating shifts to allow for crew rest and hydration.

We appreciate your patience during this storm and want everyone to stay safe.


William Gotto, Mayor
Rob Nicastro, Deputy Mayor
Ed Guz, Councilman
Pauline Smith, Councilwoman
Robert Walsh, Councilman
