ATLANTIC CITY -
All City of Atlantic City, City Hall and Public Safety offices will be closing at 3:00 p.m. today with a delayed opening at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 22 stated Business Administrator Arch Liston.
Due to the plowing of Atlantic City streets the Director of Public Works, Paul Jerkins advises all residents and visitors to move their vehicles into driveways and/or in parking garages so all vehicles are off the City streets to make way for the plows.
Below is an update from the MUA about freezing pipes:
With local weather forecasts predicting below freezing and single digit temperatures beginning Tuesday, January 21st through Friday, January 24th, area residents and commercial properties are advised to run a trickle of water through a spigot during such extreme cold periods to protect against pipe freezing.
Properties with multiple stories should open a tap on the upper floor. Depending on pipe location and building insulation, certain properties are advised to trickle both the hot and cold faucets.
Seasonal weather extremes impact underground water mains and cause unavoidable transmission breaks. Our crews respond on a 24 hour, seven day per week basis to repair transmission breaks. Customers who have more specific questions in regard to preventing loss of their water supply due to a freeze-up may call the Authority business offices between 9:00 am and 4:30 pm on normal working days, at 609-345-3315, Ext. 210, or after business hours and weekends at 609-345-3315, Ext. 234.
