A nor’easter has dumped snow at a furious rate on Washington Township Thursday, and department of public works crews began working to clear roadways at 1 a.m.
But with the amount of snow that fell, the police department and road crews are asking residents for their assistance.
The department of public works plow drivers are reporting increasing difficulty clearing the heavy snowfall when residents move snow from their driveways on to the roadways.
It is, by local ordinance, illegal to do so. Residents may be issued a citation for violating the ordinance. Police and road crews are asking residents to not push snow into the roadways, and to alert their plow service of the same.
