Milford mayor: Stay off roads so plows can remove snow
The mayor of Milford urged residents to stay off the roads during Tuesday's snowstorm.
Mayor Ben Blake wants to limit travel to allow Department of Public Works crews to move as much snow as quickly as possible.
DPW crews in Milford were loading trucks Monday afternoon with salt and sand. Blake said the city was bringing in extra trucks for the 22 different plow routes covering all of Milford's 1,200 city streets.
He said he was worried most about flooding and wanted coastal residents to move their vehicles to higher ground.
Blake said alternate side street parking will go into effect at 12 a.m. Tuesday until 12 a.m. Wednesday.
