Winter Storm Advisory

The Borough of Merchantville continues to monitor the forecast for our first winter storm this season. In anticipation, we want to remind the residents of a few ways they can assist us in ensuring the roads are safe and passable. Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, Borough trucks may plow your street several times. The Borough reminds residents to park all vehicles off the street and in driveways, to help plows navigate safely and efficiently. Where driveways are not available, we ask residents to please limit parking to one side of the street. Unless it’s absolutely necessary, please stay home and off the road for the duration of the storm. Limiting travel during and immediately after snowfall allows plow crews and emergency personnel to do their job safely, and greatly reduces the potential for accidents.
 
Here are some helpful hints to make snow removal less frustrating:
· Remove portable basketball nets from the street in front of your house.
· Do not park cars on the street from one hour after the snow has continuously fallen until 12 hours after the snow has stopped. This speeds the removal process and prevents cars from being plowed in.
· If possible, wait until the Borough plows have made a few passes on your street before cleaning your driveway.
· Do NOT shovel or blow snow into the street. Snow blowers should be adjusted so they blow snow toward your house.
· To ensure the safety of pedestrians, residents are reminded they must remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours after completion of a snow fall
 
The end of the snowfall doesn’t mean the end of our work. Public Works employees will be working continuously to provide the best possible service to residents, and to ensure roads are cleared as quickly and safely as possible. Thank you for your help during this storm!

Light the Night

Here ye, here ye! "Light The Night" will go live on the sidewalks of Merchantville on Thursday, December 24th, at 7:00 p.m. This is a night when we can all come together as a community in unity, love, and light during these difficult times. On this evening, residents will line their curbs with luminaras - brown paper luminary bags - setting the streets of Merchantville alight at seven o'clock in support of our fellow neighbors, in memory of those lost during this pandemic and in tribute those family members we cannot be with during the holidays. Resident John Reeve circulated this idea on social media about two weeks ago and it's quickly gained momentum. ,He's put an instructional "how to" video together to assist everyone in making their luminarias and, answer your questions on the event Facebook page. If you're curious about how many luminaria bags you can make with a 50 pound bag of sand the answer is 70 - using one cup of sand in each. To determine how many brown lunch bags and votives to get, please remember that luminaria" should be spaced 3 feet apart so, if your property is 60 feet wide, want to buy and make 20 luminaria. Get in the spirit on December 24th!

Get a Flu Shot

The Merchantville Health Department strongly encourages everyone to get a flu shot. The CDC, Camden County Department of Health and Human Services, and the NJ Department of Health recommends everyone six months of age and older receive a flu vaccine every year with the best time to get vaccinated in the early fall. Since COVID -19 will likely be circulating during this year's flu season, getting a flu vaccine will be more important than ever. Getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, however the vaccine can reduce flu illnesses and hospitalizations, helping to minimize the stress on the healthcare system as these two illnesses circulate. Getting a yearly flu vaccine helps protect you and those around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness such as infants and young children, older adults, and people with certain chronic health conditions. Camden County is currently providing drive thru flu shots throughout the county. Please check the dates and locations here.
