Tag Archives: Jersey City prepares for second snowstorm in a week

The Jersey City Office of Emergency Management and the Jersey City Incinerator Authority are prepared as the second winter storm

 Second storm of the week makes its way to Jersey City with potential accumulations of four inches and freezing rain.

The JCIA will have approximately 50 pieces of equipment out to spread salt and plow snow, with staff working from late tonight into tomorrow morning when the storm is expected to end. Crews will be working to remove all snow and salt roadways for the morning commute, however, motorists are encouraged to stay off the roads and seek alternate forms of transportation if possible.

Residents are reminded to not park on corners and not double park, as doing so greatly impacts the passage of emergency vehicles and plows. Anyone who is parked improperly could be ticketed and towed. Alternate side parking regulations remain suspended until further notice.

City offices will have a 10 a.m. delayed opening, with the exception of public safety and snow removal operations.

The Jersey City Municipal Court will also be opening at 10 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 5th, 2014.
