Hoboken reminds residents to clear sidewalks after snow

Posted: Updated:
HOBOKEN -

Umbrellas were out in Hudson County early Sunday night, but as the rain turned to snow, it fell hard and fast. 

Hoboken saw mostly rain - heavy at times – until the snow finally started falling around 8 p.m.

The city was ready for it, with plows and sanders on standby.

Hoboken has eight plows of its own, but with some of the streets county-owned, local crews rely on Hudson County to do its part. 

Residents were also reminded to do their part as well. In urban areas like Hoboken, residents are responsible for sidewalks, so six hours after snow ends, they have to have sidewalks cleared. They were also reminded that snow emergency routes will be in effect. This means they have to move their car from those emergency lanes before it snows or risk a tow.

Hoboken is offering discounted parking to residents and NJ Transit announced it will cross-honor tickets systemwide.
