Town Manager's Report - November 20th, 2017

Leaf Collection

As a reminder, Windsor’s leaf collection program is ongoing until December 15th.  During this time, your leaves will be picked up on the same day as your trash day. All leaves should be placed in 30-40 gallon paper leaf bags. Leaves can also be placed in a trash barrel of similar size labeled with a “Leaves Only” sticker that can be easily identified by the driver. Residents may also self-haul their leaves to the transfer station at no charge during this period.

 

Winter Parking Rules Began November 15

A reminder for residents that from November 15th to April 15th of each year, there is no parking on Windsor streets between the hours of 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM.  Also, there is no parking on any street during a snow or ice storm that has been in progress for one hour or more. Residents are asked to not leave their vehicle on the street in such a position that it impedes snowplowing operations or the free flow of traffic.

 

When the snow arrives this year, remember to keep outside exits, walks and stairs free of snow and ice.  Don’t forget there is a town ordinance that requires all property owners to clear snow from the sidewalk (and fire hydrants if there is one on or adjacent to your property) within 12 hours after a storm.

 

WIN-CAL

WinCal.org is Windsor’s new online calendar where you can find everything there is to do in Windsor - all in one place! 

 

Listings include school events, business happenings and town events and programs such as the holiday carol sing and dinner and movie with Santa. You’ll be able to easily find the information you need by searching the calendar by date, age group, or categories such as entertainment, sports, travel or educational.

 

WinCal.org is a collaborative effort between the Town of Windsor, Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Education.

 

Town Hall Closed Thursday and Friday

Just as a reminder, town offices will be closed on both Thursday, 11/23, and Friday, 11/24, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
