Press Release: Snow Event - Public Safety Reminders

Winter is once again upon us and in order to assure a safe holiday season, the Wallingford Department of Public Works is reminding residents of the following:

  • Residents should move all basketball hoops behind the sidewalk. Drivers cannot always see them. They should not be on Town property.
  • Please observe all parking bans as they will be strictly enforced.  The bans are posted on Government TV, the Town's website and News Channels 3, 8 and 30.
  • Please keep back 100 feet behind plow trucks to avoid accidents.  Drivers are constantly stopping and backing up and may not see you.
  • Town Ordinance #593, Article 3, prohibits discharge or piling snow in public roadways.  Please inform the contractor that plows your property of such.
  • Garbage cans should not be placed in the street.
  • Please be patient. Trucks do break down and get stuck or our drivers may be assisting EMS with a fire or accident. Remain patient. Your road will be plowed.

Public Safety is our #1 priority. Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.
Thank you.
Wallingford Public Works Department
