SNOW EMERGENCY: The Princeton Township Police Department declared a snow emergency as of 5 p.m. on January 11. During the declared emergency, no vehicles shall be parked on any municipally owned streets in the Township. This parking prohibition shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased and until the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic. Any vehicle parked or standing in violation of this section shall be deemed a nuisance and a menace to the safe and proper regulation of traffic, and any police officer may provide for the removal of such vehicle. The owner shall pay the reasonable cost of the resulting removal and storage before regaining possession of the vehicle.

The supply of Type O negative blood at the American Red Cross has dropped to low levels in recent weeks. A shortage of Type O negative blood often occurs during the winter months when fewer donors are giving because of holidays, when people are often visiting with family and friends, or coping with icy roads. Type O negative blood is always in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Type O negative donors are needed now to help prevent the Type O negative blood supply from declining further. Eligible volunteer blood donors are asked to call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to find an area blood drive and to make appointments.
