Selectmen: Snow Emergency Ends at Noon on Friday

The Snow Emergency and parking ban will be lifted at noon on Friday, January 5, 2018.

While the ban will be lifted, Highway Division crews from the Department of Public Works will continue to post temporary no parking/highway maintenance signs in various neighborhoods to allow for snow removal.

As a reminder, there the Town ordinance requires Greenwich property owners 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.
