Happy New Year Morristown! As we say goodbye to 2019, I'd like to thank our municipal staff for their hard work as well as the many volunteers who serve on our boards and committees.  

As we move into these cold winter months, I encourage residents to prepare in advance for winter storms and to stay posted to the town's website and social media channels for weathers advisories, closures and updates on curbside pickups. During snow events, it's important to follow all parking and snow removal rules. Keeping our roads and walkways safe for drivers and pedestrians is our top priority. Property owners are required to clear their walks within 12 hours of snow cessation, and to keep overhanging structures clear of falling hazards such as snow or ice buildups. Remember to check on elderly friends and neighbors or those who may need special assistance. 

Finally, I encourage residents to sign up for the Nixle emergency alert texting service. Nixle allows residents to receive important winter storm and emergency alert information, all through receiving SMS/text messages directly to your smartphone. To learn more about Nixle and to sign up, please visit our web site at www.nixle.com.
