Ridgewood NJ , braving the snow and the cold,some residents took a walk yesterday during the snow storm. Our ace photographer Boyd Loving hit the town to capture some idyllic snow scenes in the Central Business District in Ridgewood .
How much snow residents report anywhere from 11 to 24 inches.The Village posted 20-28 inches forecasted .
Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld said in a Facebook post , ” We have plowed the mains at least twice. We have about 40 trucks out on the roads working, So far we are keeping up with the snow which is now estimated at 15 inches into the evening…..where we need help is for residents to not park their cars on the streets – it really hampers the clean up effort and unfortunately we have hit this situation too many times since we started early this a.m. We just sent a Nixle message out and we will communicate as things change or progress. We would love for more people to sign up for theses as well as e-notices…..stay safe, Roberta”
And now weather advisory would be complete with out a ROBO call from the Mayor : 11:15 – MSG from the Mayor: (Reverse Call)
Good morning. This is Ridgewood Mayor Paul Aronsohn, and I’m calling to give you a quick update on the winter storm.
The Governor has declared a State of Emergency … and the National Weather Service has increased projected total snow accumulation in our area to 10″-15″. This includes heavy bands of snow.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect, which means that the roads are dangerous … the winds are strong … and you are urged to stay off the roads and stay at home.
Village crews and contractors have been out in full force with about 40 vehicles on the road.
On-street parking throughout the Village is prohibited until the streets are cleared or until further notice. This is very important. To effectively plow the roads, we need all cars off the streets.
Please check the Village website for storm-related updates … and please sign up for email notifications. And to the extent possible and necessary, please check on your neighbors.
Thank you and be safe.
Paul S. Aronsohn, Mayor
Village of Ridgewood
