Town Hall Will Reopen on Friday; Snow Emergency Remains in Effect

While Greenwich Schools will be closed on Friday, First Selectman Peter Tesei announced that Town Hall will be open beginning at 8:00am.

First Selectman Peter Tesei, after consulting with Emergency Management and Emergency Services department heads on Thursday night, authorized the reopening of Town Hall for regular business hours.

The Town continues to deal with the blowing and drifting snow in the aftermath of the
first storm of the New Year.

“I thank everyone who has abided by the Snow Emergency and Parking Ban that the
Board of Selectmen enacted Wednesday evening. Our top priority is to clear all 265
miles of Town roads,” Mr. Tesei said in a statement.

Tesei urged residents to continue to obey the no parking ban so that Town crews can continue their work to make all of the streets safe and usable for business and schools on Friday, January 5.

To that end, the Snow Emergency that the Board of Selectmen, acting as the Town’s
Traffic Authority, had imposed on Wednesday (January 3) remains in effect until further notice.

The parking ban will enable the Department of Public Works crews and its contractors
to effectively clear Town roadways.

Residents should park their vehicles in their driveways or in their yards. Residents also may use municipal parking lots to park their vehicles, according to the Department of Public Works.

The Town ordinance requires Greenwich property owners be responsible for keeping all sidewalks along their property clear of snow and ice.
