GREENWICH, Conn. – Greenwich officials have postponed Halloween following Hurricane Sandy, according to a statement released by the town. Officials will announce the new date for Halloween celebrations later in the week.
Dozens of roads remain impassible or partially obstructed in Greenwich, but businesses and town services are slowly coming back online. Gov. Dannel Malloy has assigned National Guard units to assist town workers in opening the roads.
A representative from Aquarion said there are no reported problems with the town drinking water. Residents with private wells that may have been flooded should consider their water contaminated and should disinfect it by boiling the water for at least 10 minutes.
The main branch of the Greenwich Public Library, as well as the Cos Cob and Byram branches, will be open on Wednesday. All three branches will have extra power cords to charge cell phones, laptops and other personal communications devices.
Town Hall is open for business and all town employees are back at work.
All town parks remain closed until further notice, including Greenwich Point.
Residents are reminded to stay away from all downed power lines and to assume that they are live.
