Public Works

During the winter months, Daleville Road through the State Forest, will not be receiving winter service.

 

Winter has officially begun in Willington

The Willington Public Works Department would like residents to be advised of the following:

A parking ban is in effect during all snow storms.  Cars parked on Town roads overnight may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Depositing snow or ice on Town roads during or after private driveway plowing is prohibited by Town Ordinance.

Sand and salt are available to residents at the Transfer Station on Hancock Road and is limited to two 5-gallon buckets per storm.

Mailbox posts should be checked to ensure they can withstand the force of snow thrown from passing plows.  In the event a Town plow hits a mailbox, it will be repaired by the Public Works garage; call 860-684-9313.  Mailboxes damaged by flying snow are not eligible for repair.

Do not allow children to play or tunnel in roadside snow banks as they are subject to plowing and snow removal by heavy equipment.

During winter storms, stay off the roads whenever possible and use caution if you must travel.

Keep windows clear of snow, ice and fog. Check tires, wipers, headlights and hazard lights and your vehicle’s battery.

Keep an ice scraper, flashlight and gloves in the car, along with a small container of sand a shovel and a few warning flares. 

Keeping your fuel tank above half full reduces condensation in the fuel tank and dry gas can reduce the amount of water in the fuel.

For snow related problems or more information, please call the Willington Public Works Department at 860-684-9313.  Expect delays during inclement weather.


Public Works Safety Poem

Author unknown  

We keep it safe to travel from home to work each day.
Although some storms are difficult, our ethics never sway

We really do get weary, as we work all through the
night
.  But safety is our goal, and we strive to do it right.

We strive to do the very best, our budget will allow.
We try to keep the public safe. As we drive around and plow.

We are the men and women that you think get in your way.
As we do our tasks we’re given, too bad you think of us that way.

We always do our best. We just wish you would admire.
The long hours that go into it and the wrath we acquire.

We are safety-minded. Always on alert.
We try hard to be careful, so no one will get hurt.

We always wear our hard hats, our gloves and ear gear too.  
We even have the latest, in fashionable steel toed shoes. 
                      
So please let it be known, that no matter where you be.
Come snow or high water, it’s Public Works you’ll see.
