SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Saturday morning’s sunshine, cleared roads and the sound of snow blowers was the signal that all major storm activity had finished.
“Early reports appear to confirm that we "weathered" the snowstorm well. Approximately 12 inches of snow fell within our community yesterday evening and over night; presently we have no reports of power outages or downed trees,” said Scotch Plains Mayor Kevin Glover in a written statement.
“Most streets are passable and our DPW will be continuing their efforts to plow and salt our streets, they expect all roads to be cleared by noon. I want to thank you all for heeding our advice to stay off the roads which clearly helped facilitate the clean up by our DPW. I also want to acknowledge our entire DPW department for their outstanding work to keep our Municipal roads open and safe, and commend our Police Department, members of our Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Departments for standing ready throughout the storm to help our citizens.
Cleanup efforts will be ongoing, should you have an issue, please do not hesitate to call our snow emergency hot line 908-322 -7100.
Stay safe, and be careful with your own cleanup efforts.
Kevin Glover, Mayor
The Township of Scotch Plains
