"Tonight's storm is expected to produce travel hazards and potentially cause power outages throughout the state," said Governor Christie. "I've authorized state officials to take all necessary action to prepare, and my Administration will continue monitoring conditions throughout the remainder of the storm. I encourage all New Jerseyans to drive carefully and remain off the roads if possible so that our first responders and public safety officials can safely respond to any emergency situations. "

Tonight's storm is expected to continue through Thursday, bring heavy snow, mixed precipitation including ice, and freezing temperatures throughout the State.

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Senior Bus service is suspended for tomorrow.

Should there be 3 or more inches of snow on the ground by 6:00 a.m., refuse and recycling collection will be suspended – please remove containers from the street to avoid plow damage.

Montclair residents are reminded that the Township has a parking ordinance in place, Township Ordinance 327-25, to facilitate snow removal on public streets. The ordinance prohibits parking on public streets during a snow event as well as parking a vehicle so that it extends into the roadway when it snows. The regulation applies when any accumulation of snow completely covers the roadway and obstructs road markings.

The parking prohibition remains in effect after the snowfall has stopped and until the entire block of roadway has been cleared of snow.

 
Montclair Paid Sick Time Ordinance Goes into Effect March 4 PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Montclair Deputy Mayor Bob RussoMontclair’s Paid Sick Time ordinance goes into effect on Wednesday, March 4. The ordinance, which passed by a nearly 3-to-1 margin as a referendum question on last November’s ballot, will provide employees working in the Township up to 40 hours of paid sick time.

Under Montclair’s Paid Sick Time law (also known as Earned Sick Days) employees who work for at least 80 hours in a calendar year in the Township must be provided with paid sick time by their employers. The law excludes from this requirement individuals employed by the city, state, or federal government; individuals employed by any New Jersey school district or Board of Education; and a limited number of union members.

“The implementation of guaranteed paid sick leave means catching the flu or child coming down sick won't result in losing a job or lost wages,” said Montclair Deputy Mayor Bob Russo. “Montclair was at the vanguard on this issue because residents recognize that paid sick leave benefits employees, employers and the economy as a whole.”
