FW: Blizzard 2015

To the Residents: The Governor has issued a STATE OF EMERGENCY AND TRAVEL BAN on all Connecticut roads effective 9:00PM this evening (Monday, 1/26/15) until the end of the storm. If necessary I will also initiate a Local Snow State of Emergency. A preliminary Storm Meeting was held this morning with our Selectmen, Emergency Management Director, Rick Tillotson, and Department of Public Works Foreman, Bill Jasmin to determine our course of action to address equipment and additional staffing of personnel for Public Works Department. I am asking that all residents please stay at home and off the roads. The Public Works Crew will attempt, as will the CT DOT, to keep roads open but there may be a time that with the high winds and drifting snow that trucks may have to be pulled off the roads for their safety. If you have a power outage please notify CL&P, and myself, so I can monitor repairs. CL&P will do no repairs with wind gusts above 35mph. If there are numerous outages we will open the Colebrook Senior/Community and both Fire Department stations. If you have a medical emergency please call 911. I will receive a text from Litchfield County Dispatch and if assistance is need to open driveways to get emergency vehicles in, contact me or the DPW Garage. Please remember to check on your neighbors and elderly friends. During the storm I will be either at the town hall, on the road or at home. Town Hall: 860-379-3359 x202 Colebrook DPW: 860-379-8306 My Cell: 860-485-6831 Tom’s Home: 860-738-0850 Town Hall and Colebrook Senior/Community Center will BE CLOSED TUESDAY, January 27th, 2015.
