City Hall announced two items: the City Council meeting is cancelled
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for our area of New Jersey. The alert will remain in effect until 6 A.M. on Thursday (February 11th). The alert means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected.
The City of Hoboken has made all the necessary preparations for this potential storm. Please be advised that as soon as City streets are covered with a layer of snow, cars must be removed from all emergency snow routes. These routes are clearly identified on street signs. They include:
Name of Street Location
- Washington Street Both Sides
- Willow Avenue West Side- Observer Hwy to 11th Street
- Third Street North Side- Jackson Street to River Street
- Fourth Street South Side- River Street to Jackson Street
- Fifth Street South Side- Clinton Street to Hudson Street
- 13th Street North Side-Washington Street to Willow Avenue
During a Snow Emergency there is No Parking on these streets. VIOLATORS WILL BE TOWED. This is necessary to move Police, Fire and Ambulances throughout Hoboken in times of emergency for the safety and welfare of all our citizens.
The City of Hoboken is opening Garage B, D and midtown to residents with permits for a $5 fee from 8:00 P.M. tonight (Tuesday, February 9th) until 10:00 A.M. tomorrow morning (Wednesday, February 10th). Residents with parking permits may also park in these garages on Wednesday evening from 8:00 P.M. until 10:00A.M. Thursday morning (February 11th). You may stay in the garage tomorrow from 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM, but it will be the regular Garage rates. This offer will help residents avoid having to dig out their cars and also assist the City and its plans for snow removal.
Please be advised that DUMPING or shoveling snow into restricted fire hydrants areas or into City streets is a violation of the law and subject to a fine. Keeping these areas clear is vital for the safety of the general public.
In addition, please be advised that all sidewalks must be cleared of snow six hours after the completion of the storm.
