The City of Perth Amboy’s Public Works Department and Office of Emergency Management would like to send a reminder to all residents regarding snow removal guidelines and procedures. Please read the following for preparation and clean-up in the event of moderate to severe snow conditions.
• Major and emergency roadways will be cleaned first for salting and snow plow/removal.

• Please stay off the roads in severe conditions.
• If you must travel, please take extra caution and car pool, when possible.
• When removing snow from your vehicle do NOT push snow into the street.
• If you are near any fire hydrants please assist in removing the snow in case it is needed in an emergency.
• Be aware of parking restrictions/signs that state “No Parking When Roads Are Snow Covered”—Do NOT park in these spaces or car will be towed.
• City ordinance requires that all vehicles must be removed from specific snow-covered roadways in order to allow snow plow/removal equipment and emergency vehicles to get through. Park your vehicles in your driveways or city lots. During severe conditions parking fees will be suspended.
