NUTLEY, NJ - Mother Nature dumped 9 inches of snow on Nutley yesterday with the first winter storm to close schools this year throughout the district.

According to Mayor and Department of Public Works Commissioner Joseph Scarpelli about 20 plows and salting equipment cleaned up the snow during yesterday’s storm. Approximately 200 tons of salt was spread on the streets.

The Mayor drove around town with DPW Supervisor Mike Luzzi yesterday assessing the clean-up.

“The DPW spread salt up to 8:30 p.m. last night finishing up [the roads] and this morning, as well. The wind swept snow in some areas. They were out early this morning, especially by the schools, making sure everything was safe,” he said.
