Dear Resident,

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning beginning at 10am this morning and continuing until 6am Wednesday.   Snow accumulations of 8 to 12 inches are expected in our area.  Marlboro Department of Public Works (DPW) has been out since early this morning applying deicing material to the roads.

All Marlboro recreation programs beginning after 11:15am are cancelled.  Both Marlboro K-8 and the Freehold Regional High school have announced an early dismissal today and cancelled after-school activities.

As per Township ordinance, please remove all vehicles from the street so that the plows can properly and safely clear the snow from the roadways.  (When shoveling, snow should be piled to the right of your driveway when looking toward the street from your house.) The Fire Department reminds us to clear the snow from around the fire hydrants to prevent the lines from freezing. 

If you have not done so already, please visit our “Communications for Residents” section on the Township Website marlboro-nj.gov/resident-communications  to ensure that your home and cell phones are registered for Police reverse 9-1-1 calls and text message updates.  You can also find us on Facebook  www.facebook.com/marlborotownship.nj and Twitter @MarlboroTwp as well as my Facebook page. 

Wind gusts of up to 40MPH are expected overnight.  In case of a power outage, please call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or visit the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center. Customers can also obtain a summary of any current outages affecting their town by clicking on the "MyTown" link on the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center outage maps page. The MyTown pages can be accessed at www.firstenergycorp.com/mytown. Customers may also report power outages on smartphone devices. Information on JCP&L's free smartphone apps is available at www.jcp-l.com.

Please take a moment to locate and review the “Plan and Prepare” brochure sent to your home with the Superstorm Sandy Anniversary letter.   The letter and brochure may also be found here marlboro-nj.gov/plan and prepare.sandyanniv and the brochure is reprinted in the centerfold of the Marlboro 2014 recycling calendar mailed to your home in December for easy access to emergency phone numbers and websites.

This storm is expected to continue throughout the day and evening.  Low visibility and areas of drifting and blowing snow will develop overnight.  The wind chill is expected to be as low as 10 below zero.  I urge to you stay home and be safe.  jh

The Marlboro Police Department is available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100.  For emergencies, please call 9-1-1.  We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary.   Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
