ABERDEEN TOWNSHIP URGES RESIDENTS TO PITCH IN AND HELP NEIGHBORS CLEAR SNOW AND ICE FROM SIDEWALKS AND DRIVEWAYS
ABERDEEN, N.J. (2/3/11) -- As winter's snow and ice continue to fall, Aberdeen Township is asking residents to pitch in and assist neighbors who may be unable to shovel.
Record amounts of snow in the Garden State have made it difficult for many homeowners to shovel in front of their homes. As a result, school children, commuters and dog walkers are being forced to walk in the streets along with traffic, causing dangerous situations for themselves and drivers.
“Although there is no ordinance requiring that homeowners shovel their sidewalks, we greatly appreciate the efforts of those residents taking this extra step,” said Mayor Fred Tagliarini. “Similarly, we’ve been very pleased to see a number of residents lend a hand to neighbors, especially those who simply cannot shovel due to age or physical disabilities. Under these extraordinary circumstances, we urge all able-bodied residents to do what they can to help their neighbors out.”
Organizations interested in performing community service by providing free shoveling can contact Aberdeen Township Interim Township Manager Holly Reycraft at (732) 583-4200, ext. 117.
