From the South Orange Village website: 

Jitney service will run as scheduled. All on-street permit holders are advised to park in 3rd street garage.

If you have a fire hydrant in front of your home please keep it clearly visible and accessible as it could save your home – or even your life.

Residents are required to clear snow as best as possible from their sidewalks within 12 daylight hours following snowfall. Do not shovel snow into roadways, as it puts emergency vehicles in danger. Please be careful when shoveling and take frequent breaks.

Shoveling snow into the street is prohibited and will result in the issuance of a summons which will require a court appearance and fine.

Please do not stretch extension cords across road ways as it creates an unsafe condition for you and our emergency personnel.
