Commuter Parking Information:  As the weather begins to change the Borough of Dumont and the Dumont Police Department would like to advise you of parking regulations and request your cooperation.  The residents of Dumont will be placing leaves at the curb for pickup; we ask that you be careful where you park by not parking on top of leaf piles and leaving adequate space for the removal of the debris.
Also be mindful of Borough Ordinance 21-18:  "Whenever snow has fallen and the accumulation is such that it covers any street or highway in the Borough, no vehicle shall be parked on any street or highway until after the snow has ceased and the street or highway has been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the natural flow of traffic". This ordinance will be enforced.
The Borough of Dumont does provide adequate commuter parking areas and permits may be obtained at the Borough Clerk's Office (Ordinance 21-34 through 21-39).
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Dumont Police Department at 201-387-5000.
