Gloucester Township Police Issue Snow Storm Warning for Tuesday, Snow Driving Tips
4/15/07: Millions of Dollars Wasted by Past Gloucester City Mayor and City Council

Park your vehicles in your driveway and off the road during snowplow operations


(January 20,2014)--Winslow Township Police are urging residents to refrain from parking vehicles in the street due to the expected heavy snowfall tomorrow January 21st. Our public works department will be extremely busy with plowing operations. Vehicles parked in the roadway cause a hindrance to the plowing operations and put the plow drivers at risk for possible accidents with parked vehicles in the roadway. We appreciate you cooperation and help during this storm.

Public Works: Snow Removal Information

Our Public Works Department is working hard to make driving safer and easier in snowy weather. Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, township trucks may plow your street several times. As snow rolls off our plows, it will accumulate in driveways. Please understand that this is unavoidable and it is the homeowner's responsibility to clear it. Here are some helpful hints to make "snow" business less frustrating:

Shovel snow to the right side of your driveway (facing the street) to minimize the amount of snow entering your driveway.

If possible, wait until the township trucks have made at least two passes on your street before clearing your driveway.

Shovel and/or blow snow onto the curb, not into the street.

DO NOT PARK cars on the street from one hour after snow has continuously fallen until 12 hours after snow has stopped. This speeds the removal process and prevents cars from being plowed in.

To insure safety of pedestrians, residents must remove snow from sidewalks following a snow fall. Please remember that children are walking to school and bus stops are all over town.

In the event of deep snow, please shovel around your mailbox and fire hydrants near your house – for your safety and your neighbors'.

Not all roads in Winslow Township are maintained by the township.

During bad weather, we often receive calls from our residents about the condition of roads whose maintenance is the responsibility of Camden County. We're happy to relay your concerns, but if you would like to reach the Camden County Highway Department directly, please call (856) 783-0043.
