Snowfall protocol

Please try to utilize off-street parking so the plows can successfully clear the roadways. Attempt to wait until the roadway is clear before clearing your driveway to avoid the snow being plowed back into the driveway. When removing snow from the sidewalk and driveways please do not shovel or snow blow snow back into the street. All state roads are plowed and maintained by NJDOT. County roads are plowed and maintained by Camden County Highway Dept.  Township personnel are only responsible for plowing municipal roadways

 

Street sweepings and what do to do to prepare

Street Sweeping will begin in April, weather permitting. Please park all vehicles, off of the street, during the week of sweeping in your area, so the entire street can be cleaned.

 

Street Lights

The maintenance of street lights is the responsibility of Atlantic City Electric.
You can contact Public Works with the Pole Number and we will contact Atlantic City Electric or you can report the outage by going to www.atlanticcityelectric.com and click on the “Outage Center” link.          

Driveway and/or sidewalk replacement

A Street Opening Permit will need to be completed if you are doing any Driveway and/or sidewalk replacement work.   This form can be obtained by visiting the Township Clerk’s Office.  If the driveway work that is being performed is located behind the sidewalk closest to your property then a Zoning Permit will need to be completed. This form can be obtained online or by visiting the Zoning Office.
