A message from the Clinton First Selectman:
Good afternoon this is First Selectman Willie Fritz with an update on winter storm Charlotte. At this time crews are continuing cleanup efforts. With the help of local contractors we are clearing intersections, creating better site lines and trying to widen the roads. Please stay off the roads if possible. It makes our job much more difficult if our crews encounter vehicles while plowing.
A growing concern is the weight of the snow on roofs, heavy to begin with and the addition of today’s rain increases the potential for failures. Commercial structures with flat or low pitched roofs should be evaluated. Look for cracks in ceilings and expansion of grids on hung ceilings. Homeowners should also pay attention, listen for unusual noises and look for cracks. DO NOT venture onto roofs to clear snow. If you think you have a problem, leave the building and call our dispatch center at 860-669-0451.
If you are elderly or disabled and have not been able to clear your driveway please contact my office at 860-669-9333 and we send a crew to assist you.
A parking ban remains in effect until further notice.
Crews will be in the Town center this evening once again removing snow beginning at 8PM. Please do not drive into this area after 8PM. 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.
