The Cinnaminson Police Department is reminding residents to move their parked cars to allow for easier snow removal.

"Residents are reminded to move all parked vehicles from the roadways to allow for safe passage for emergency vehicles and snow removal crews," police said in a statement released via nixle.com. "Also do not throw snow back into the street."

The latest forecast calls for accumulation of about an inch an hour.

Lets see now, if someone has 5 cars b/c there family is living in their parents residence and they have no room to park there cars in the street where do U want them to park...Does not matter, our public works department pushes the snow into our driveways there fore where would U like for the homeowners to put the snow.....I guess there will be an ordinance and fine now for that to just like leaves....

See if you can park in your neighbor's driveway in that situation. Also, shovel the snow onto your lawn, not back into the street. The snow has to go somewhere when the plows come through, if rather have clean streets and shovel a little extra.

It would be pretty sweet if the plows didn't heap blocks of ice back onto freshly shoveled sidewalks and driveways.

Not being a pain in the back side but I took a ruler out and got some information for Brian N....From the curb which is the start of the street to where the plow goes is 22 inches out to the center of the street....the sidewalk is 15 inches from the curb and the sidewalk is another 15 inches to the start of the lawn so a person that is 67 years old will have to spend alot of time clearing the sidewalk and the end of the driveway as not to toss the snow back into the street, now do U want to have someone died of a heart attack, can hardly wait for this response, thanks for your input Brian....

It would be wonderful if the plows could get even a foot or two closer to the curbs. Don't get me wrong I really apprecite the job Cinna works does. Some other towns seem to barely have plows or salt at all. I live in an area with many elderly people. I try to shovel for them as much as I can and a few less feet in the street would be great.

They cant get closer to the curbs because people leave cars on the street. John, and I say this with all sincerity, its not the township's responsibility if you physically cant clear your walks yourself. Their responsibility is to clear the streets. If people insist, or as you gave an example, have to leave their cars on the street, the plows cant get any closer. I know thats a lot for me to shovel too, and I hate it, and I'm considerably younger than 67. But it is what it is, if you have to pay someone to shovel it, that might be your only option. And I am honestly not trying to be argumentative, and I completely agree that it is a big pain to clear the ends of the driveway after the plows come through. But I dont think you can blame the township for that.

Brian, I do thank U for your concern, but the north side of willow is less than 5 inches from the curb while the south side of willow is 22 inches or more from the curb....At the dead end of Andover there is a person that has parked there cars all 5 on there lawn and there is no parked cars for the trucks to miss..I do have when they come around someone to shovel the snow so thanks for your concern....I also have a vacant house next door where no one shovels anything b/c its banked owned...Oh well, snow is not great to get only maybe the kids enjoy it sledding and NO SCHOOL...
Brian N February 05, 2014 at 02:06 PM
John, definitely sounds like a call to the township is in order if there is nothing in the way and the plow is still leaving all that snow for you. I'd be mad too! Do the walks get shoveled by any one for that vacant house? Hope you are able to stay inside and stay safe today!
Sarah February 05, 2014 at 02:57 PM
Brian I didn't say I couldn't move my snow, just that it would be nice if they could get closer. BTW there are virtually no parked cars on the street in my neighborhood. Everyone makes an effort to park in their driveways which we all have. Thanks for your input though.
Brian N February 05, 2014 at 03:02 PM
Hi Sarah, I was actually responding to John's post, not yours. But interesting to hear there is another street where the plows don't get close and there are no cars in the way.
John February 05, 2014 at 07:09 PM
Brian, in response to your question about the property next door, no the snow is not shoveled and the driveway is loaded with snow, I have talked to John at the township and I think there are codes in relationship to height of lawns and leaves and brush, I have not asked about the sidewalks with snow in the way....I try to walk everyday and fine it hard to walk with the snow and ice there, thanks for your concern..I also would let U know that the recycling guys had trouble getting to the containers b/c of the snow and curb problem...
