Danbury City Hall is closed today to observe Lincoln's birthday, but Mayor Mark Boughton says public works employees are out in force. The snow is expected to be around for a long duration and could impact Friday morning's commute as well.
Boughton says officials went to municipal buildings and schools to check the roofs. He advised people with flat roofs to check as well because with rain and sleet on top of another heavy snow load, it could potentially lead to a catastrophic failure.
Fire Chief Geoff Herald is reminding people to clear a path to any fire hydrants on your property and uncover the hydrant.
