ATTENTION: Residents of Spotswood and Helmetta, please be aware of all posted signage and local ordinances regarding parking on roads during snow storms. The storm is estimated to drop 5-8 inches of snow starting at approximately 5PM. If your vehicle is in violation of such ordinances it will be ticketed and towed immediately so it does not interfere with snow removal. Please don’t come outside to see your vehicle missing because you are not following the law and making it difficult for our DPW to do their jobs. Please shovel your sidewalks and if you are caught putting snow back into the roadway after the plow comes by, you will be ticketed. Have a safe day everyone!!! ... See MoreSee Less
