Branford Blizzard Update: Feb. 11

Here is the latest update from the Town of Branford on roadways, schools, trash pickup, parking bans and more.

 

The following is the Town of Branford's blizzard update for Feb. 11  

First and Foremost, I would like to thank everyone for their patience during this unprecedented storm and ask for that continued patience.  The clean up effort has been quite challenging and will continue for several more days. 

*Roadways*

The Public Works Dept. is working diligently to clear all roads. Due to the large piles of snow at intersections please use extreme caution when pulling out of the intersections. Please do not let children play in or on the snow piles, equipment operators cannot see them and it is extremely dangerous. In addition, some roads are experiencing minor flooding, use caution.

We are also asking for your assistance, if you have a fire hydrant on or next to your property please clear the snow so it could be located quickly in the event of an emergency.

*Septic Pumpouts / Fuel Deliveries*

Please be advised that if you are scheduled for a septic pump out or oil delivery it is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure that the companies can access your tanks. 

*School*

The Superintendent of Schools has announced that all public schools will be closed tomorrow. (Tuesday)

*Trash Pick-up*

All collections this week will be suspended until next Tuesday. The Transfer Station will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday) in observance Lincoln’s Birthday but will reopen Wednesday for regular hours.

*Parking Bans*

We are still requesting all residents voluntarily avoid parking vehicles in the roadway. If you must park in the roadway parking is allowed only on the odd side of the street. Violators could face up to a $90 fine and have their vehicle towed at their expense.

*Town Buildings*

All town buildings and departments open as normal.

*Buildings and Structures*

Those homeowners that have flat roofs should pay attention to ensure that the weight from snow and rain doesn’t compromise the roof. If you hear any abnormal noises from your roofs and ceilings please call 911.

Please visit the town’s website at www.branford-ct.gov  and www.branfordpolice.com for other storm related information.

Solar Pete, on my current street I am not lucky enough to have a sidewalk, however when I did live in a corner house with sidewalks across the width of my house and the length of my house and backyard, that was the first place snow removal happened. And as I did after this storm I used a shovel. I believe that is better for the environment, Solar Pete.bballfan, I don't see how we can hold the town to task and not expect them to do the same to the tax payers. Part of the problem of the roads being too narrow is that people are walking on them rather than the sidewalk. I never had trouble shoveling up after a mess made by the plow on the sidewalk.

My feelings exactly...Why do you need a Public Works Taj Mahal? Obviously this town does not have the equipment or manpower to fill it. So save the $ please
