Snowfall Maintenance Reminders:

Parking: Ellington residents are reminded that the Ordinance Concerning Parking on Public Highways within the Town of Ellington prohibits street parking during and after any period of snowfall or icy condition in order that the Department of Public Works will be able to safely and efficiently remove the hazards of snow and ice from the roads. 
Snow Removal from Sidewalks
: The Sidewalk Ordinance regarding snow and ice removal requires the owner, occupant or person having the care, maintenance or rental of the land, building or premises adjoining or fronting upon a sidewalk to remove snow, sleet or ice within 24 hours following the cessation of the fall of snow or sleet. Failure to do so could result in a fine.

Contact the First Selectman's Office at 860-870-3100 or email us at info@ellington-ct.gov if you have any questions regarding the above ordinances.

Snow Removal from Fire Hydrants: Residents are asked to clear any snow from fire hydrants on your property or nearby. Open a path to the hydrant and clear an area all around the hydrant. All fire hydrants should have a reflective pole marker. If the one near you does not, please call the Ellington Volunteer Fire Department at (860) 870-3190 and leave a message with the specific location of the fire hydrant.

Your Mailbox: Residents are reminded to make sure their mailboxes are secured and sturdy before the winter snow season begins.  Mailboxes that are damaged by the snow load will not be repaired by the Town. If you have any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at (860) 870-3140 or email at publicworks@ellington-ct.gov.

Sand is available to residents throughout the winter months. The pile is located at the Town Garage, 21 Main Street, on the Firehouse side.
