Mother nature dumped six inches of snow on Friday, Jan. 7. Residents spent the morning digging out, while others headed outdoors with their canine companions to enjoy the snow and to the parks for some sledding.

Residents and business owners are reminded they should clean their sidewalks and crosswalks of snow. Snow blowing and shoveling snow from walkways, driveways and sidewalks into the streets, plowing driveways into the streets and cleaning snow off of vehicles into the street is prohibited in the township.

Residents who parked in the municipal parking lots and decks have until 9:30 p.m. Friday to remove their vehicles. The 9:30 p.m. deadline will be enforced so that snow removal crews can clear the lots and decks, according to Township officials.
