[ARCHIVED] 1/20/2011 - Public Works: Snow Removal Policy
SNOW REMOVAL POLICY
Prior to a storm, regular weather reports are received, and manpower is made available. As the snow starts to fall, manpower is deployed on an as-needed basis. Once the storm is upgraded to all out, as many as 23 plow trucks and 3 supervisors are on the road.
Please remember...emergency responders come first, so Police, Fire and EMS vehicles shall take preference.
Main roads are plowed first, collector streets next, and dead-ends last.
Residents are encouraged to stay home until the storm has passed and the streets have been plowed.
Please don’t shovel the end of your driveway too soon, as it will only frustrate you each time the plow goes by and fills in the area with snow.
Please contact your trash hauler to confirm there will be pick-up before putting out your trash cans and recycling bins.
Any objects, such as mailboxes, posts, fences, sprinkler heads, curbing, etc., within the roadway area that are damaged, should be called in to the Highway Department at (203) 452-5070 within 2 weeks of the occurrence of a storm.
In the event that a parking ban becomes necessary, it will be posted on the Town website and announced on WTNH (channel 8), WICC 600 AM radio, and periodically on WFSB (channel 3).
Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation during the busy Winter season!
