GREENWICH, Conn. -- The town of Greenwich is under a snow emergency due to Wednesday's snowstorm.

The town declared the snow emergency at 1 a.m. Wednesday, and it is in effect until further notice.

During the snow emergency, no vehicles are permitted to remain parked, stopped or standing on any snow emergency streets. Vehicles in violation will be subject to ticketing and immediate towing. If you are unsure if your vehicle is parked on a snow emergency street, a full list can be viewed here.

Vehicles displaced from snow emergency streets may be lawfully parked in municipal off-street parking lots until the snow emergency is over. Your cooperation will ensure that road crews can keep snow emergency streets open for emergency first responder vehicle traffic.

Additional staffing has been added to public works road crews and to Greenwich's emergency responder agencies and the town of Greenwich is fully prepared for the coming snow and ice event.

Apparently this rule is not enforced or applicable to all equitably. There have been 6-8 cars left on Orchard Street all day today with not one ticketed or towed per the town orders as stated above even with notification, all parked there by gas station employees in Cos Cob. Orchard was deemed one of the few snow emergency streets in this area. Discouraging to residents that the town trucks can't get through to make the streets safe in the event of an emergency.
