- Two-hour delayed opening for Municipal offices:
Due to the winter storm we are experiencing, Governor Christie's declaration of a State of Emergency and the need to give our DPW workers time to plow all of our streets as well as clear the snow from our facilities, all Municipal offices will have a two-hour delayed opening at 10:30am on Friday, January 3rd.
JCP&L is fully staffed and prepared to respond should any outages occur as a result of today's predicted snow storm. Additional personnel are also on stand by and will be deployed if needed. JCP&L is continuing to monitor the storm and will provide additional updates as conditions warrant.
Customers should immediately report any downed wires to JCP&L or their local police or fire department. Customers should never go near a downed power line. Customers are also reminded to never attempt to remove trees or tree limbs from power lines.
To report power outages call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or visit the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center. Customers can also obtain a summary of any current outages affecting their town by clicking on the "MyTown" link on the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center outage maps page.

Montville Schools and all M.E.D.L.C will be closed Friday as up to 10 inches of snow was possible by Friday morning.
A winter storm warning has been issued until 1 p.m. Friday as frigid temperatures and high winds blast the area.
"Please remove any vehicles from roadways so crews may clear roads. Please limit travel to necessary trips only," said Richard Cook, of the Montville Police Department.
