Milford Schools Closed Monday

Parsons Complex will be open for employees who are able to get there.

 

Milford Schools will be closed Monday as the city continues to dig out from a blizzard that dropped over three feet of snow Friday into Saturday.

Many Milford residents have expressed frustration about the lack of communication from the City about a list of plowed roads or a priority list for the future.

Check in with our Storm Hub for future updates throughout the day.

This town has NEVER been good at snow removal. This is New England! Wake up Town of Milford! Get your s**t together.

the mayor is incompetent. Time for him to resign!

Wow, we knew what was coming, the last plow I saw on my street was Friday night. It should have been done like all the other storms, "piece away at it", every few hours. Then it wouldn't have been so out of control..no brainer

Of cause you are angry. You have had an easy life. During your life how many 30" snow storms have you lived through? When I was a preteen living on Long Island 24" of snow was common. Personally, I believe the Mayor is doing everything possible. We here in Milford sustained the largest amount of snow in the State. How many times has that happened to us? Now where do you live? On a main street, a secondary street or a side street? They plow in order of importance, so just show some patience. My street was plowed at 7:10 this morning, but having a heart condition I can't do any shoveling, nor can my 70+ wife. So consider yourself lucky if you are in good health.

The Mayor should release a copy of the plan that includes the priorities and estimated timeline. Why are some dead end roads plowed and others not even touched? Hmmm... maybe someone knows somebody in the Mayor's office or is friends with Bruce Kolwicz (Director of DPW)??????? THAT IS HOW YOU GET YOUR STREET PLOWED!!!

Let me tell you something Ronald. Milford has never had a good snow removal plan and I've never seen a town plow snow as poorly as Milford. I live on the town line where Milford and West Haven and Orange basically meet and every time it snows, Milford will plow so poorly that there is still snow on the roadways to deal with. But when you enter into Orange the roads are completely clear right down to the pavement. What good excuse is there for that? I saw a plow "sanding" on Friday down Anderson Ave. The driver layed down about 10 yards of sand then about 100 yards down the road lay a little more down. What good does that do? He's just doing enough to report back that he sanded. Also, my dead end road has not been touched once since this storm has started.

Meadows End rd has not been plowed yet

I think the city of Milford is doing the best job they can in this situation. 38" of snow is not a common occurrence here and not easy to deal with. The Mayor has kept us updated through his phone calls. My street has not been plowed yet either but I am thankful that we have power and heat. My feeling is that things could be worse so we need a little patience!

The biggest THANKS to all the DOT and City workers for the countless hours they have spent clearing our streets and highways. With much appreciation!!!

Ronald: How much did the Mayor pay you for that plug?
MilfordResident February 10, 2013 at 11:56 PM
After three days, patience = stupidity. What we need is an investigation into this fiasco.

Heating Tech. I tried calling in to PW & e mailed the mayor, I even spoke to PW dispatch. I'm sitting home with a fully outfitted service van, but can't get out of my street to help anyone! Someone needs to get a firm grip on their shoulders and pull their head out of their butt!
Alice February 11, 2013 at 02:22 AM
this is a once in 100 year storm. Don't blame the Mayor. He is doing a great job.
Alice February 11, 2013 at 02:25 AM
No, patience never equals stupidity. It equals humanity and thoughtfulness, which we all need a little more of at the moment.
Maria February 11, 2013 at 02:40 AM
If this is my biggest problem this year- to be inconvenienced a few days- i am really OK with it! Weather is beyond our control. I keep reminding myself it could be worse!
