Snow Days Piling Up

We want to hear from you. What road do you live on and is it plowed? How do you think the district should make up for the lost days?

Thank you to those who have plowed. However, I really think we need to significantly increase the budget for snow removal. Driving through Monroe made me realize something is really wrong with our town. Monroe and Trumbull schools are open tomorrow. So are Milford schools (Milford had 38 inches!). This is not the first time Shelton has not cleared roads well enough. In fact 2 years ago I saw a pickup truck flip on Nell's Rock Rd because the. Snow removal job was done so poorly. And the guy driving the truck wasn't driving fast! I'm disappointed in the appointed government for not making our safety, education and business access a priority.

I live on Birchbank Rd. and I couldn't be more pleased. The guy who plowed our road worked nonstop until the road was cleared and you could actually drive down it. Great job Mr.plow driver!!

I live on Jonathan lane which was plowed at nighttime. These guys did a super job considering the working conditions and extremely long days!!!! However many secondary and terciary roads are dangerously narrow with a snow ice packed surface. They are difficult to drive on in a vehicle. I can't imagine a 30 foot school bus navigating. It would be near to impossible. The mayor and the board of ed need to carefully consider the safety of the children when deciding a return day to school. The lost days can come off April vacation and go longer in June if need be.

I live in Pine Rock and if it wasn't for my husband and the people that live hereto at least attempt to make a path out we would still be stuck although a plow can by yesterday. But didn't put the plow on the ground. I understand the roads are narrow here but we pay taxes just like everyone else.
