Ocean Grove: To continue to facilitate snow removal efforts, ALTERNATE SIDE SNOW PARKING is in effect for Ocean Grove beginning at 7:00AM on Wednesday, 2/2/2022 with the exception of Main Ave, which will be handled in accordance with already posted signs. Vehicles not parked on the opposite side of the street by 7:00AM tomorrow may be towed. On streets posted with “Snow Emergency – No Parking” signs, this will mean parking on the same side as the “Snow Emergency – No Parking” signs. If the street is not marked with signs, please visit the ordinance using the following link to locate your no parking direction and park on that side:


Please share with friends, family, and neighbors. It is recommended that residents who are able to do so move their vehicles tonight. Lastly, recycling for Ocean Grove scheduled for Wednesday has been moved to Saturday.







A “Snow Emergency” has been declared for the Township of Neptune effective 7:00 PM on Friday, January 28, 2022 and will remain in effect until the emergency is rescinded. During a declared Snow Emergency, snow parking regulations are in effect and a full list of parking prohibitions can be found below. Residents are recommended to utilize off-street parking wherever possible. 
 Notification of rescission of the declared emergency will be made via the Township “blast email” program, on the Township website, Neptune OEM social media accounts

We expect this storm to be accompanied by moderate coastal street flooding, strong winds and bitter cold temperatures. As such, residents are strongly encouraged to refrain from driving in Neptune Township during the storm unless absolutely necessary.  
All municipal agencies are fully prepared to respond to this storm 24/7 throughout this weekend. Please keep in mind the many hazards that our staff must deal with to safely clear our roadways and to respond to emergency needs throughout the storm. Neptune has approximately 400 lane miles of local roadway to clear. Please be patient and understanding as our team works through the day and night to create a safe environment for our community.
