Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei has issued the following message to all Greenwich residents:
As many of you know, significant snowfall and bitterly cold temperatures are anticipated to occur this evening through Friday morning. Accordingly, the Town of Greenwich Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to declare a Snow Emergency effective at 6:00 pm today, January 2nd, 2014. The Snow Emergency will remain in effect until cancelled.
During the period of the Snow Emergency no vehicles are permitted to remain parked, stopped or standing on any Snow Emergency Route. Vehicles in violation will be subject to ticketing and immediate towing. If you are unsure if your vehicle is parked on a Snow Emergency Route, a full list of all routes can be viewed at the Town of Greenwich website - www.greenwichct.org. Vehicles displaced from Snow Emergency Routes may be lawfully parked in municipal off-street parking lots until the snow emergency is over. Your cooperation will ensure that road crews can keep Snow Emergency Routes open for emergency First Responder vehicle traffic.
The Town of Greenwich is fully prepared for the coming snow event. Additional staffing, as appropriate, has been added to Public Works road crews and by Greenwich's emergency responder agencies. At this time, we anticipate the storm will be a moderate duration event with moderate impact. Even so, it is imperative that everyone exercise additional caution during the storm, limit travel to only essential trips and dress appropriately for the bitterly cold conditions.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation and best wishes for a safe New Year.
