ESSEX COUNTY, NJ  – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. and Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura are asking that residents do not park on county roads from Saturday, January 19th to Sunday, January 20th. Keeping the roads open will make it easier to remove snow and enable public works crews to plow from curb to curb.

Weather forecasts indicate a significant snowstorm followed by rain and freezing temperatures will arrive Saturday night. The heavy snow and ice may cause tree limbs and electrical to break. DiVincenzo and Fontoura warn residents to not touch live wires or drive near them.
