Winter Storm Warning & Discount Garage ParkingTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, January 26th, 2011
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning which is in effect through 6 am on Thursday, January 27. Snow accumulations of 8 to 12 inches are currently predicted.
Residents are reminded not to park along emergency snow routes. As soon as streets are snow-covered, cars along these routes may be ticketed and towed. Tickets are currently being issued. A state of emergency does not need to be declared for towing to occur. A list and map of emergency snow routes is available on the City website: http://www.hobokennj.org/departments/transportation-parking/emergency-snow-routes/. In addition, no parking signs have been placed along the north side of 9th Street. If necessary, the Chief of Police may declare a snow emergency and tow cars along this street as well. Residents who believe they have been towed should call Mile Square Towing at (201) 217-3133.
Enforcement of alternate side parking regulations will be suspended during and for 24 hours after the end of the storm.
Residents may contact the Emergency Operations Center as of 8 pm on Wednesday with questions or areas that need snow plowing by calling 201-239-6643/6644/6645/6647/6648. For emergencies, call 911 or the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100. Downed power lines should be reported to 911.
