NORWICH – At Tuesday night’s meeting of the City of Norwich Common Council, Monday’s late season snowstorm and the toll it took on the city were big items for discussion.
Each of the council members described the damage to their ward as minimal, with most citing small tree limbs and branches that had fallen as the main extent of the damage. “I want to thank Carl (Ivarson, superintendent of the department of public works) and his crew for their work after the storm on Monday,” said Third Ward Alderwoman Suzanne Williams. The rest of the council members echoed her sentiments during their ward reports.
Sixth Ward Alderman Robert Jeffrey also took the opportunity to thank the fire department for their work. “I commend the fire department for their quick response,” said Jeffrey, explaining that the sixth ward saw a tree catch fire as the result of a power line falling on it. According to Jeffrey, the tree was in close proximity to the school.
