UNION, NJ – Mayor Suzette Cavadas sent a message to Township residents with a winter weather update.

“Our Department of Public Works has been out combatting the severe weather since earlier today. We would like to thank all of the residents who contributed to a successful snow operation and complied with the directive to keep their vehicles off the streets.”

Cavadas said residents are asked to continue to keep vehicles off the streets “a bit longer as DPW completes their second pass through town.”

With temperatures remaining below the freezing mark, Cavadas asked residents to stay off the roads and to avoid tossing snow into the street as residents shovel their properties.

“Once the snow ceases, said Cavadas, “our DPW will continue their salting operations.  Throwing snow into the street is counterproductive and increases the likelihood of ice forming.”

Cavadas concluded, “remember to stay safe, check on your neighbors, and only travel if absolutely necessary.”
