A message from the Clinton First Selectman, Sunday, Feb. 10, 4:30pm:
Good afternoon this is First Selectman Willie Fritz with an update on winter storm Charlotte. At this time crews are out and we have enlisted the help of local contractors to assist in the cleanup. We hope by the end of the day to have all roads accessible.
Please be patient. This storm dumped an enormous amount of very heavy wet snow topped with 24 inches of drier snow. The combination has been a challenge for our crews and the private contractors. Please stay off the roads as it makes our job much more difficult if our crews encounter vehicles while plowing.
CL&P is reporting only 10 outages in town and crews are continuing restoration efforts.
A parking ban remains in effect at least until further notice. There are no activities at any of the schools on Monday (schools are closed). Town offices will not open until 10am Monday.
Crews will be in the Town center this evening removing snow beginning at 8pm. Please do not drive into this area after that time.
Our dispatch center is always open and can be reached for non-emergencies by calling 860-669-0451, if it is an emergency dial 911.
