New Fairfield officials are offering a reminder to residents of winter weather services offered by Public Works. In New Fairfield a sand-salt mixture is available at the Drop Off Center. Residents may fill two 5 gallon buckets with sand per storm.
The Drop Off Center is open on Saturdays and Tuesdays 8am to 3:45pm and Thursdays 2pm to 5. Residents need to bring their own buckets and shovel.
Residents are asked to remove cars parked on town roads during a storm so plows can efficiently clear the roads. Mailboxes and posts that receive direct contact from snow removal equipment will be replaced with a standard mailbox and post. After calling the Public Works Department, their Superintendent will inspect the damage and replace the mailbox accordingly.
