The Borough of Roselle Park would like to remind all residents to work with their neighbors in the following ways throughout this Storm:
Use and share driveways when possible, and front lawns if no other accommodations are practical in order to clear streets of vehicles this allows streets to be plowed curb-to-curb
Do NOT throw snow in the street (this is illegal and slows down the clearing of local roadways)
All sidewalks must be cleared within 12 hours of daylight after the storm (this is the law and allows for safe pedestrian travel in the Borough)
Check on elderly and home-bound neighbors prior to the storm
As always, for all emergencies please dial 9-1-1 & for non-emergencies please dial 908-245-2300
