Snow Advisory
Essex County has called a Snow Emergency because of the weather forecasting a blizzard that will bring over a foot of snow. As a matter of public safety, motorists are asked to avoid parking their vehicles on county roadways from Monday, January 26th at 4PM to Wednesday, January 28th at 9AM so Public Works crews can remove snow from curb to curb and spread salt. We encourage residents to remain safe during these upcoming snow events and only travel if it is absolutely necessary.
Snow Closings
Because of the blizzard: Turtle Back Zoo and Codey Arena are closed on Monday, January 26th and Tuesday, January 27th. All senior buildings and congregate meal sites in the parks closed at 1 p.m. on Monday, January 26th and will be closed on Tuesday, January 27th and Wednesday, January 28th. All park roads will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, January 26th and will be closed on Tuesday, January 27th. Essex County Special Transportation System buses stopped running at 1 p.m. on Monday, January 26th and will not operate on Tuesday, January 27th. The Essex County WAVE Transportation Service will stop running at 2 p.m. on Monday, January 26th.
