Message from the Mayor:
As the storm recovery efforts drag on, I realize we are all getting a bit more frustrated and our patience is wearing thin. We continue to push JCP&L to give us answers, specifics and most importantly, to get power restored. JCP&L is maintaining restoration for the majority of their customers as of 11:30 p.m. tomorrow.
Our Township personnel continue to address branches over roadways and are plowing to widen streets to better facilitate buses in anticipation of schools being open tomorrow. With that, please remember to take your time and drive defensively and courteously. Leave yourself extra time to get wherever you need to be.

We will continue to pick up herbaceous waste no larger than 3 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter. Please do not put anything larger in the streets, including oversized branches, as this will only create additional hazards.
The Fire Department has been responding to multiple calls for carbon monoxide exposure due to improper placement of generators. PLEASE follow the generator safety tips that we have posted on the Township’s website.
We have received the following information from JCP&L:
Multiple crews are out at the Waverly Substation, the Millburn Substation and the Short Hills Substation. We have been requesting specific information as to which streets are affected by the utility’s “outage orders” and which “outage orders” have crews dispatched to them. We just received a listing from JCP&L of streets that are affected by outage orders that crews have been dispatched to work on. That information will be posted on the Township’s website and social media, which we will update as additional information is provided.
The Millburn Free Public Library is open until 4:45 today and the Bauer Center is open until 6:00 as warming and charging stations.
Again, I want to thank all of our residents for your patience and community-mindedness during this difficult time. I also want to thank our Police, Fire and Public Works departments and personnel for their tireless efforts.
