As winter quickly approaches, the Englewood Police Traffic Unit would like to give you a couple of reminders regarding City parking and snow removal:
Please be mindful that many of our City streets fall under Schedule XIII of City Ordinance 25-21 which establishes temporary prohibited parking for snow removal. REMEMBER: This prohibited parking ordinance will be enforced once there is approximately 3 inches of accumulation. Should you leave your vehicle on one of these streets during a snow storm, there is a possibility that it may be towed.
Please keep aware of any weather alerts and plan ahead to make alternate parking accommodations. For severe storms you may monitor the City website where parking sites may be suggested for your use.
APARTMENT RESIDENTS: When possible, the Traffic Unit will keep in contact with your Super or Site Manager in order to facilitate the roads being cleared of vehicles.
If you have any questions you may contact the Englewood Police Traffic Unit at 201-871-6442.
To obtain an awareness of those with special needs who live and work in the City, the Englewood Police Department Office of Emergency Management encourages residents to register with NJ Register Ready, a system designed to help plan better for adverse conditions that may develop anytime, anywhere, or anyplace.
