A Message From the First Selectman on the Snow Storm

Parking ban still in effect; town offices will open at 10am Monday.


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.

Thank You.

I want to thank Public Works for the fantastic job they did during this blizzard. We were only cleared on Sunday evening, but we live on a low priority cul-de-sac. The crews did a fantastic job of dealing with this unprecedented event. The entire town is clear by Monday morning and that has got to be commended. I am sure that there were complaints about some of the side streets, but just remember there will always be complainers, just like there will always be people that are out driving or ignoring the parking ban, making the job more difficult. Remember the crews were excellent, hard-working, and professional. I am very proud of the work everyone did and feel the Public Works department deserves an award and recognition of the fantastic they did.
