From Office of Emergency Management:
January 25, 2015
A Blizzard Warning is in effect for our area from 12:00 pm Monday until 6:00 pm Tuesday. Snow accumulations of 18-28 inches are possible with locally higher amounts. Winds will be 20-30 mph with gusts of 45 mph. Travel during this time period will be very hazardous or impossible as a result.
Please be reminded that current Local Ordinance prohibits the parking of vehicles on any street within the Borough whenever snow covered. This prohibition remains in effect until the snow has stopped and the streets have been plowed sufficiently. Residents should wait for the Department of Public Works to completely clear the roadway, curb to curb, before clearing snow from their sidewalks and driveways.
Due to the anticipated snow accumulations, garbage pick-up scheduled for Tuesday, January 27th has been cancelled. Please do not bring your trash to the curb. A rescheduled pick-up date will be forthcoming.
Residents wishing to add their cell phone number to the emergency notification list can do so via the Borough website by clicking on the SWIFT911 icon.
Please remember to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly, during this type of weather event. Thank you and have a good evening.
In the event of a power outage, residents are asked to notify Jersey Central Power and Light at 1-888-LIGHTS-S (1-888-544-4877). Updated forecasts and community information can be found via the Borough’s website (www.matawanborough.com) and on the facebook pages of the Matawan Police Department and the Borough of Matawan-Office of Emergency Management.
