The Borough has opened or is in the final stages of opening all of Naugatuck’s roads for passage. Crews and contractors are working now to clear the final streets in multiple neighborhoods. All roads should be passable by morning (2/12/2013) at the latest.
Once all roads are open for at least one-lane travel, we will shift focus to widening roads and eventually clearing intersections. Contractors with large equipment will continue to be engaged to assist with this effort. Vehicular travel remains hazardous, and we urge all motorists to exercise a heightened sense of caution and courtesy when driving, particularly on roads where only one lane of travel is possible. Please also be mindful of pedestrians walking on tight roads.
We realize that this has been a very stressful time for many, and much work remains to be done. We would like to thank everyone, however, for their patience; and commend all those neighbors who helped neighbors in numerous ways. That is what Naugatuck is truly about.
Naugatuck’s Schools will be closed on Tuesday (2/12/2013). We still have much work to do to return our roads, streets and neighborhoods to as normal as possible given this amount of snow, and create safe conditions for buses and bus stops.
Town hall, the Naugatuck Senior Center, and all other non-emergency management departments will be closed on Tuesday (2/12/2013) in the Borough. The Howard Whittemore Library will be closed until the local state of emergency is lifted.
There will be no regular trash and recycling collection on Tuesday (2/12/2013). Regular trash and recycling collection will resume on Wednesday (2/13/2013), with the regular schedule moved-back by two (2) days. Regular Monday collection will be Wednesday; regular Tuesday collection will be Thursday; and so forth, through Sunday. Please ensure trash and recyclables are placed curbside by midnight before your day of collection.
