Snow Emergency Lifted

GREENWICH, CT. – The Board of Selectmen approved the lifting of the snow emergency effective at 8 a.m. Monday, February 8. 

Snow depths averaged 7.5 inches around Town, according to Emergency Management Director Dan Warzoha.

Town Hall is open for business 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today and by appointment from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Snow cleanup regulations

By Town ordinance, Greenwich property owners are required to be responsible for keeping all sidewalks along their property clear of snow and ice.

The Town of Greenwich prohibits plow contractors from pushing snow from driveways or parking lots onto Town streets. This practice is dangerous and impedes the Town’s snow removal efforts. If there is no other alternative to pushing snow into the street, the private plow driver must plow off the windrow left across the street by re-plowing until the road is safe.

The Department of Public Works reminds local restaurant operators who have permitted outdoor dining nodes, that the restaurants are responsible for all snow cleanup of the areas behind the node barriers. Restaurant operators also are responsible for cleaning the sidewalk along the front of their respective property.

We are requesting residents that when they are out shoveling snow from their driveways and sidewalks, to also clear nearby fire hydrants. By clearing a three-foot radius around the hydrant will help save precious time in battling a fire.
