JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven M. Fulop in coordination with the Office of Emergency Management announced Tuesday that city will begin implementing a snow removal plan for the main thoroughfares and commercial districts that will have the snow hauled to vacant city, county and state property.

Commercial and main streets are being targeted, as these areas provide access to the daily needs of residents such as supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and other small businesses and services. Clearing these areas will also improve conditions for emergency responders to move throughout the city.

"We thank residents for their patience during what has been one of the harshest winters on record," Fulop said. "With everyone's cooperation, this can be a seamless process that will help improve the mobility of both pedestrians and motorists as well as ease parking conditions."

The schedule for Tuesday, Feb. 18 includes Central Avenue from North Street to Manhattan Avenue; Sip Avenue from Enos Place to Westside Avenue; Montgomery Street from Orchard Street to Summit Avenue; Ocean Avenue from Kearny to Warner; Newark Avenue from Summit Avenue to Tonnelle Avenue; Bergen Avenue from Academy to Fairview; MLK Drive from Virginia Avenue to Wade Street; West Side Avenue from Duncan Avenue to Communipaw Avenue; Summit Avenue from Sip Avenue to Pavonia Avenue; Monticello Avenue from Jewett Avenue to Storms Avenue; Bergen Avenue from Woodlawn Avenue to Stegman Street; and Newark Avenue from Palisade Avenue to Marin Boulevard.

Residents are asked to not park on the above portions of streets from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. or until snow has visibly been removed. For Tuesday, the city will work around the cars that have not moved but asks for everyone's cooperation to please move their vehicles. Beginning Wednesday, anyone who does not move their vehicle will be subject to ticket and tow. Police will be traveling along with the plows to sound their sirens and alert residents to move their vehicles.

Additional daily schedules will be released with the same procedures of non-parking for snow removal and residents are advised to visit the city website at www.jerseycitynj.gov, JC1TV, and the City Facebook page and Twitter feed for updates.
