SOMERVILLE, NJ - Somerville Mayor Brian Gallagher is asking residents to be patient as the Department of Public Works continues to tackle the massive clean-up job left behind by an unprecedented blizzard that left nearly 30 inches of snow on the ground.

"It's going to take time; they're doing the best that they can," Gallagher said.

A convoy of state, county and borough plows worked through the day to clear the roadways during the storm Saturday and all day Sunday.

The borough DPW work crews will be back at it Monday and will continue throughout the week, according to Steve Wieman, coordinator of the borough's Office of Emergency Management.
