Dear resident:

The National Weather Service Winter Storm Warning for our area is effective until 7pm this evening. The snow is expected to continue throughout the day with accumulations totaling 4 to 8 inches.   Last night, the Governor issued a State of Emergency.   We ask everyone to please stay off the roads allowing the Department of Public Works and the First Responders clear access. 

The Department of Public Works (DPW) employees pre-treated the roadways are currently clearing snow and will continue to plow, salt and sand.    The Marlboro Department of Public Works (DPW) provides the following snow removal tips and information:

  • Marlboro DPW salts and plows 200 miles of roads. It takes DPW and contractors approximately 10 hours to make one pass around the town for an average 4” snowfall. Larger snowfall amounts increase the time accordingly.
  • Do not shovel your driveway until the snow plow has made at least one pass on your street. This will help to reduce the amount of snow at the bottom of your driveway, although some is inevitable.  
  • Do not put snow from your vehicles or your driveway onto the street.  This creates icy and dangerous conditions as the snow melts and refreezes. If you use a professional snow removal company, please ask for their cooperation. 
  • If snow must be placed in the street, place it as close to the curb as possible to the left of your driveway when facing your house.  This deters the plows from pushing the snow back into your driveway.

We have been in contact with JCP&L and have been assured that they have activated their storm restoration plan and have additional line and forestry crews on stand-by to respond should outages occur. Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the “Report Outage” link on www.firstenergycorp.com. Please immediately report downed wires to JCP&L or the Marlboro Division of Police. Never go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity.

If you live near senior citizens or residents with special needs, please take a moment to check in on them. As always, 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 you through email and social media.  Please stay safe.  Thank you in advance for cooperation and patience.
