WINTER STORM GAIL:
Thank you to our Emergency Management Team and our DPW for safely navigating us through Winter Storm Gail. It was a pesky storm that didn’t seem to want to leave, but despite the intense snow, high winds, and icy conditions, thankfully there was minimal storm damage and no loss of power. Special thanks to our diligent DPW for working throughout the night to help keep our roads plowed and cleared. And thank you to everyone for cooperating with the Emergency Management Operation Protocols. The snowy borough looks very picturesque today. It was really great to see children and families sledding and enjoying the wintery outdoors. Several snowmen have also been spotted popping up around town. Good luck to all who are entering the New Providence Recreation Department Snowman Contest 12/16-12/21 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Happy Hanukkah to our families, friends, and neighbors who celebrate!
Stay safe, keep well, and be strong. Pioneer Strong!
– Mayor Al Morgan
