Blizzard 2016

Newark was hit with more than two feet of snow. Please let us know about the City of Newark's response to the storm. Let us know what street you live on, what time it was plowed and whether it is passable now. We'll forward any complaints about streets not being plowed directly to administration of Mayor Ras Baraka. We'll compile this information so we know what the problems areas are for the next storm and work with the administration to better address these areas.

    It’s very disturbing that my street has not been plowed at all. I followed the city of Newarks web site regarding the plow trucks and Most of North Newark hasn’t been cleaned. Please plow Clifton Avenue between Heller Parkway an Grafton. Thank you Anticipating Action

    The city did nothing for those of us in my neighborhood (historical section of Forest Hills). We had to dig ourselves out, plow our own streets, and salt the area ourselves. We’ve seen no response at all. This is unacceptable. When the city opens up and we are all expected to go back to work this whole neighborhood will still be snowed in.

    Brunswick street straight down to wright street needs to be cleared. There are some elderly, kids and hardworking people that live there. Also you have alot of hard working people that have work no matter the weather.

    Thank you

    All of Forrest Hill is still under snow. The snow stopped coming down late last nite. My suggestion, get on top of the snow on real time. Work through the night so we aren’t playing catch up. He entire east coast prepared for this storm. The slow response suggest that that we were alseep at the wheel and does not give me confidence in those assigned to handle these matters.
