Employees of the department of public works worked tirelessly to clear the snow from the streets as the second winter storm of 2014 passed through the township Tuesday.

North Jersey was on a severe winter storm warning from Tuesday at noon until Wednesday at 6 a.m. and some areas were expected to see at least 10 inches of snow.

Mayor Robert Parisi stated everything went smoothly in regards to the cleanup of the snow and that he believes the township got at least 11 inches of snow.

“Everything went great,” Parisi said in a phone interview with Patch. “We had a lot of snow, but the timing of it all helped really enough where we were able to get a good jump on it. I know that last night there were reports that we were close to 11 inches and having dug myself out of the snow I think the township got around 11 inches of snow overall.”

Parisi also stated he did not hear of any power outages or incidents during the storm.

“Given the amount of snow we had, everything went pretty well,” Parisi said. 

All schools are closed Wednesday and the district was also on an early dismissal schedule Tuesday, due to the storm.
