Dear Resident,

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory beginning at 11pm this evening until 7AM Wednesday calling for snow, sleet and freezing rain overnight and into early Wednesday morning before changing to rain. 

Marlboro Department of Public Works (DPW) will apply deicing material to the roads overnight, but please note that even a small amount of ice can cause slippery conditions and black ice.  We urge you to stay off the roads if possible. 

Ice and sleet increase the chance for power outages, especially when the tree branches are already snow covered.  We have been in communication with JCP&L and they are fully staffed and prepared to respond should any outages occur. As a reminder, report any downed wires to JCP&L or to Marlboro Police. Never go near a downed power line or attempt to remove trees or tree limbs from power lines.

It is important that every customer without power reports their outage directly to JCP&L. This allows JCP&L to isolate outages for more effective repair. We urge you to please call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or visit the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center. You can also obtain a summary as well as estimated times of restoration of any current outages 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. You may also report power outages on smartphone devices. Information on JCP&L's free smartphone app is available at www.jcp-l.com.

If you have not done so already, please visit the “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.  Communication during emergencies is absolutely critical.  Please take a moment now to register so that we can contact you even when some methods of communication are disrupted. 

A “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 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.

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.   Please stay safe. 


Mayor Jon Hornik
