Snow Plowing And Removal To Continue Over Weekend On 1st, 3rd & 4th StreetsTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Friday, January 28th, 2011
Plowing and clearing of snow along the parking lanes of both sides of 1st Street and 3rd Street will take place on Saturday, January 29 and along 4th Street on Sunday, January 30.
This is necessary to ensure the safe passage of fire apparatus. The Police Chief has declared a snow emergency along these streets, and residents should remove their vehicles by 9 am on the designated day or risk being ticketed and towed. Residents may park along these streets once both sides of the street have been cleared.
�We need to clear our streets as much as possible before the next storm hits, but I recognize it can be difficult for people to dig out their cars,� said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. �I strongly encourage residents to volunteer and help their neighbors dig out, especially the elderly and disabled. Another major storm is possible next week, and we�re doing everything we can to prepare for that storm.�
Due to the impending storm and the need to address public safety issues, enforcement of alternate side parking street cleaning regulations is suspended until further notice.
In addition to clearing 1st, 3rd, and 4th Streets, the City will also continue to clear snow piles from as many street corners as possible.
