Plenty to Plow

WestportNow.com Image
Even though Westport did not get the worst of the storm, there were still plenty of streets to clear, including Kings Highway North. Even though the travel ban on local roads was lifted at 8:30 a.m., town officials urged residents to stay off the roads to make it easier going for the snowplows.

Marpe: ‘Stay off the Roads a Few More Hours’

Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe today released the following statement on the storm:

It appears that the worst of the snow storm has passed out of the Westport area.  We are fortunate that the snowfall has been much less than anticipated and that there have been no electrical outages, minimal shoreline flooding, and no significant public safety emergencies.

I want to thank the citizens of Westport for heeding our request to stay home and off the roads. This has really facilitated the town’s road clearing efforts and minimized traffic accidents.

I would ask Westporters to stay off the roads for a few more hours to allow road and parking lot clearing to be completed.

Westport police said today Alexendra Skiffington, 26, turned herself in at police headquarters Sunday night to be booked on charges of operating under the influence and taking a motor vehicle without permission.

Released after posting a $2,500 bond, Skiffington is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Feb. 2, said Capt. Vincent Penna.

She was originally arrested on Nov. 29 when officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a Richmondville Avenue address where she was attempting to leave in her boyfriend’s car without his permission, police said. (See WestportNow Dec. 5, 2014)
