WINTER STORM WARNING
Dear Park Ridge Residents and Businesses:
A winter storm warning has been issued for our area beginning around midnight tonight and continuing through the day tomorrow. They are predicting up to eight inches of snow and a potential for icy conditions. With these conditions, there is a potential for power failures.
The Park Ridge Department of Public Works staff is ready to respond to this storm. Our Electric Department crew is also ready to respond to any electric system emergencies.
Please be advised that there is a statewide shortage of road salt. Although we have enough supply to get through this storm, there is another potentially large snow storm predicted for the weekend. As a result, we plan on using our salt supplies sparingly for this storm. Please keep this in mind and try to stay off the roads tomorrow if at all possible. Please note that you are not permitted to park on the street during a snow emergency (so you do not hinder us from plowing the roads).
If you experience a power failure, please call the Park Ridge Utility Office at 201-391-2113 to report the problem. After normal business hours, you can report the outage to the Park Ridge Police Dispatcher (Central Dispatch) by calling 201-391-5400.
Please feel free to call Borough Hall tomorrow at 201-573-1800 if you have any questions.
