The State of Emergency has been officially lifted in Parsippany, Mayor James Barberio said Thursday morning.

Traffic signals are now functioning, garbage, recycling and yard waste pickup is also back on its regular schedule, the mayor said in a statement.

The Parsippany Water Department is no longer using a generator and has had full electric power restored to all pump houses. State of New Jersey water restrictions remain in effect.

About 86 percent of the town's power has been restored with 3,323 outages remaining as of Thursday at about noon, according to JCP&L.

I live in the section known to the municipality as "High Country" we are 5 degrees colder then most areas in Parsippany and pay the highest taxes in town. We still have wires in the street, blocked roads, and no electric/heat. The Mayor should address my area.

Any updates on Halloween for Nov 10th? I heard the mayor has trunk o treat at the town hall for the schools. Is that the only place kids can go or are they allowed to go on the streets that are safe to go about?

Yes, I'm interested in hearing more about that too. It doesn't say that Halloween is cancelled necessarily, but it wasn't very specific.
