Danbury readies for the storm

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton  said the city road crews are preparing for the storm.

The city has called a level 1 snow emergency, he said. That means the city wants all cars off the streets so the plows can clear the roads.

Any cars not moved may be towed, Boughton said.

Boughton also wanted to remind residents to shovel their sidewalks.

He said the city’s emergency shelter at the War Memorial is on stand by, and would be opened if the need arises.

He said the shelter could be opened as soon as needed.
