Greenwich Board of Selectmen Lift Snow Emergency

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Friday, December 18, 2020


GREENWICH, CT. – At a meeting Friday, December 18, 2020, the Greenwich Board of

Selectmen unanimously approved the lifting of the snow emergency, effective at 4 p.m. Friday,

December 18, 2020.


As a reminder, the Town ordinance requires Greenwich property owners to be responsible for

clearing snow and ice from all sidewalks along their property.


The Town of Greenwich prohibits plow contractors from pushing snow from driveways or

parking lots onto Town streets. 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.
