Following the weekend Blizzard “Jonas” that slammed our town, Greenwich Police issued cautioned that as of Sunday, the snow emergency remains in effect, and there is no set time to end the parking ban on emergency routes. (Here is a link to the snow emergency roads.) The Greenwich Selectmen will reevaluate the snow emergency status on Monday morning.
Police recommend using caution while both walking and driving on Monday. And, as temperatures dip overnight and into Monday, what was soft snow will become ice and maybe slippery or hazardous. Be wary of potential black ice, and plan on allotting extra time for the morning commute on Monday.
Lt. Kraig Gray of Greenwich Police said the department is grateful to the citizens of Greenwich for their cooperation during the weekend blizzard. Residents largely stayed off the roads, which made it safer and the clean-up more efficient.
As of Sunday, Lt. Gray said in an audio statement that there were no significant issues as a result of Saturday’s storm. He said that although there were several minor accidents, as of Sunday, there were no trees down and no power issues reported.
Greenwich Police remind residents to please clear the sidewalks in front of their homes and businesses.
“The Dept of Public Works has been working around the clock since before the storm started and continued until after it ended,” said Lt .Gray in a press update by email. “The DPW staff are taking a well-deserved rest period, and operating with a skeleton crew on Sunday, but will return to an all-hands operation starting at Monday at 4:00am.”
The Board of Education will make an independent decision regarding whether schools will open Monday, Jan. 25.
