CLARK, NJ — A powerful winter storm is headed toward Clark, and Mayor Sal Bonaccorso is urging residents to remove parked cars from the township’s streets. According to the National Weather Service, the storm will hit late Wednesday night through Thursday, with 8 to 12 inches of snow accumulation possible.

“As soon as we get two inches, cars must be off the streets,” Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso said. He said plowing will begin at the 2-inch accumulation mark.

“Our first goal is open the streets,” he explained. “Our second goal is come back and make it nice. We’ll be out again on Friday touching it up. 12 inches is a lot of snow to move. Be patient; but, please, help us by removing your cars.”

Residents who do not have access to off-street parking may park at the Clark Municipal Building. Cars must be parked “nose to the fence” along the tennis-court side of the parking lot, Bonaccorso said.

In a Facebook post, the Clark Department of Public Works reminded residents to also remove portable basketball nets from the roadways. They also offered this common-sense advice in support of the mayor’s comments. “The more cars in your driveway the less you have to shovel,” the post read. They also reminded residents that throwing snow into the streets is illegal.

Clark Public Schools will be closed Thursday due to expected hazardous conditions, the district announced Wednesday evening.
