With winter officially here, it is time to remind everyone of some winter safety tips and of our policies regarding snow removal and parking.
Overnight parking is prohibited on all Red Bank streets when snow covered. This ordinance will be strictly enforced during inclement weather to facilitate snow plowing. Any cars left on the street will be ticketed or towed.
Winter storms can often bring downed trees and power lines. In the event you experience a power outage, please contact JCP&L by telephone at 1-888-LIGHTSS (544-4877) or go to their website at: https://www.firstenergycorp.com/outages_help/Report_Power_Outages.html . It is important for every customer affected to call and report their outage even if you believe your neighbor has already done so. The number of calls received with prioritize response. Generators should be used with extreme caution and never indoors. Please review the Generator Safety Tips flyer linked here..
Please remember it is the responsibility of all property owners, occupants, tenants and/or supervisors, to ensure that all public walkways are clear of snow and ice within 24 hours of snowfall. If the ice is frozen and unpractical to remove, the walkway should be sprinkled with salt or sand. Those who do not comply will receive a warning from the Code Enforcement Office followed by a summons.
Also, while not required by Borough Ordinance, walkways from the street to the doorway should also be cleared to give mail carriers and others access to your door. The Post Office notes that carriers are not required to deliver mail to an address that they determine to pose a hazard. For more information on Red Bank Code Enforcement, call 732-530-2760. To speak to a representative of the Post Office, call 732-741-9200.
