SUMMIT, NJ - An inbound snowstorm, scheduled to bring high winds and up to a foot snow to Summit, has caused the following event cancelations in the Hilltop City for January 23:
Speak Up Summit's "State of The District"
- originally scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at the Summit Elks Lodge
- new event date is February 6, 9:30 a.m. (coffee / 9 - 9:30 a.m.), at Twin Maples
"Meet the Mayor" Event
- originally scheduled for 1:30 - 3 p.m. at Marigold's in MONDO
Summit High School Sports
- Track and Field Union County Relays at 9 a.m.
- Girls Freshman Basketball v. Cranford at 10 a.m.
- Girls JV Basketball v. Cranford at 11:30 a.m.
- Girls Varsity Basketball v. Cranford at 1 p.m.
All non-sports related events scheduled for January 23 within the Summit Public School district have also been canceled.
With snow set to begin late Friday into Saturday, the Division of Public Works (DPW) is preparing snow plows and other snow removal equipment, and has an adequate supply of salt, calcium chloride, and brine liquid onsite and available for pre and post- storm application. 
Roadways were brined Thursday morning in anticipation of the storm. The DPW will work in two, 12-hours shifts from the onset of the snow.  City ordinance requires that residents and businesses shovel sidewalks within 24 hours after the end of the storm, and not push snow into the street.

The City requests that, If possible, all vehicles be kept off City streets during the snow storm to facilitate clearing of snow.
Summit Police encourage residents to avoid any unnecessary travel during the storm by planning in advance to obtain all necessary supplies. In the event of an emergency dial 9-1-1.  For non-emergency requests, the Police Department can be reached at 908-273-0051. The Police Department asks that all residents check on neighbors, especially the elderly.
With below freezing temperatures predicted, the Summit Fire Department encourages residents to allow a slow drip from faucets to reduce the buildup of pressure in the pipes. Even if the pipes freeze, the release pressure in the water system will reduce the likelihood of a rupture. If using a space heater, never leave it unattended.  If possible, the Fire Department asks that residents clear snow from nearby fire hydrants to keep them accessible during emergencies.
Residents should report any / all power outages directly to JCP&L by telephone at 888-544-4877 or via firstenergycorp.com. To report downed wires, dial 9-1-1.
For further cancelations, and all storm-related news, check TAPinto Summit for periodic updates. To report a cancelation or weather-related event, contact Greg Elliott at gelliott@tapinto.net.
