Storm Alerts from Public Works!

2/20/14 UPDATE:  See press release below regarding the West Side snow removal.  

The Department of Public Works is committed to keeping the streets of Ansonia open and returning them to a safe condition during inclement weather.   With your help, keeping vehicles off the street if at all possible, will aid in this process.  While our vehicles are plowing, be advised in the event that any snow is pushed into driveways, it is the responsibility of residents to remove.
