The Town of Ossining is carefully monitoring today's winter storm. According to the most recent forecasts, the storm will continue through the day today with heavy snow, continuing tomorrow morning and tapering off later in the day.
Town Offices will be closed today as of 12 noon, but employees are working remotely and can be reached by phone or email. We have not determined whether the buildings will be open tomorrow. For contact information for all Town departments, please visit the Town's website.
The walk-up window at the Town Justice Court will be closing at noon today due to the storm.
The Town of Ossining Highway Department is responding and working to clear roadways of snow. Please keep vehicles off the roads to allow for safe clearing of roadways and passage of emergency vehicles. If there is a fire hydrant or sidewalk near your property, please clear them. Also, please do not shovel or plow snow into the road when clearing your own driveways and walkways.
For Unincorporated Ossining, refuse collection is on schedule for today per Suburban Carting. You can receive alerts and review your refuse schedule using the Recycle Right Westchester feature (also available as an app). Tomorrow's schedule has not been determined, we will provide more information as it becomes available.
The Village of Ossining's snow emergency remains in effect. During a snow emergency in the Village of Ossining, stopping/standing/parking is prohibited on designated Snow Emergency Streets. For more information on the Village’s snow emergency, please visit the Village of Ossining website. Please be reminded that there is no overnight parking allowed on roadways in the Town of Ossining from November 1 through March 31 each year.
As always, we recommend that you prepare for the worst: keep flashlights and extra batteries at the ready, charge up your cell phones and laptops, and check in on elderly friends and neighbors. In the event of a power outage, call 1-800-75-CONED, or text "REG" to "OUTAGE" to make a report. You can also download the ConEd app on your iPhone or Android smartphone to easily report outages and check on estimated restoration times -- you will need to have your account number handy to register with the app, so be sure to have it on hand to get set up. You can also use these services to report downed wires, which should also be reported to the police department, by calling the non emergency number at (914) 941-4099. Remember to not touch downed power lines – they will likely still be electrified and pose a serious risk.
Thank you for your cooperation – stay safe!
