Stratford Public Schools will be closed Monday and Tuesday as public works crews work around the clock to open every road in town, Marc Dillon, the mayor's chief of staff, told Stratford Patch in an email Sunday afternoon.
All town facilities also will be closed Monday and Tuesday, Dillon said.
"Every resource in our fleet is on the road and we have outside contractors and mutual aid from other towns assisting," he wrote. "Given the recent blizzard and record snow fall, Cleanup will continue over the next several days.
"We are asking employers to be mindful that many employees are unable to make it in to work. This fact should be considered when deciding whether or not to open any business.
"Please remain off of the roads as additional traffic will only hinder recovery efforts," Dillon continued. "I would like to remind residents that we still under a state of emergency. I ask that you remain safe and I thank you for your continued patience."
Our original report folllows.
Stratford Public Schools will be closed Monday as the town continues to dig out from a blizzard that dropped upwards of three feet of snow Friday into Saturday.
Many roads in town have yet to be plowed, according to comments left by residents on this Patch article.
One resident wrote she talked to someone at the town's Emergency Operations Center and was told the hope Sunday is to plow "at least one path through each street in town by the end of [the day]."
Marc Dillon, the mayor's chief of staff, said the historic proportions of the storm, the sheer volume of snow -- five feet in many spots -- is making it difficult and time-consuming to plow.
Rumors that the town's plows ran out of diesel fuel were denied by Dillon.
Dillon said "36 plows, 32 salt/sanders [and] multiple payloaders are out removing snow."
Residents are still urged to stay off the roads. For additional information, residents can call the Emergency Operations Center at 203.380.6757.
Town Hall will also be closed until Wednesday, Feb. 13, according to a message on the town's website.
