The City of Hoboken continues to clean the streets of snow. As of Sunday morning, emergency snow routes remain in effect until further notice. The Office of Emergency Management advises residents who do not need to travel to stay home and avoid driving if possible.
Keep Sidewalks and Curb Ramps Clear
Property owners and occupants are reminded that they have six (6) hours after the completion of a storm to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property, along with adjoining curb ramps or curb cuts.
Residents are urged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing snow from their properties.
It is illegal to shovel snow back onto streets or onto fire hydrants.
The City performs proactive inspections and relies on citizen complaints to help identify property owners that are not meeting sidewalk safety requirements. While majority of property owners comply with the safety regulations, the City will issue fines to those who do not keep sidewalks clear.
To report an unshoveled sidewalk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking is Prohibited on Emergency Snow Routes
