BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ -- Snow has continued to fall at a moderate but steady rate throughout the afternoon in the township, but the roads have been mostly free of incidents, police said mid-afternoon. There was no call yet as of Monday evening on whether the continuing snow would impact school opening times on Tuesday morning.
According to Bernards Township Chief of Police Mike Shimsky, "(We've) only had one storm-related accident today on Allen Road (that was) very minor in nature."
As of 3 p.m., Shimsky said there were no power outages or other issues reported.
"County and township DPW crews have been out since yesterday and early today pre-treating," Shimsky said. "Crews are being held over to deal with the anticipated accumulations this evening."
Bernards Township is in the area that is under a Winter Storm Warning until 7 a.m. Tuesday for snow that could accumulate between 5 and 9 inches, according to the National Weather Service. Township schools were closed Monday, but no decision has been made yet about Tuesday's school day.
"School Superintendent (Nick) Markarian will be in contact with us very early tomorrow morning to make call on any potential school closures/delayed opening," Shimsky said.
Township schools were closed on Monday. The Bernards Township Connect Meeting on "Later School Start Times" originally scheduled for Monday evening is being moved to Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m., location to be decided.
