When severe winter weather strikes, the Township of Montclair is well prepared. However, to provide more efficient snow plowing and salting operations the Department of Community Services (DCS) crews, residents and businesses need to work together to manage challenging winter weather conditions and reduce the time and expense necessary to complete a storm cleanup.

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.
