Suffield Spared Most of the Damage Caused by Hurricane Sandy

Schools are re-opening Wednesday after a two-day hiatus; Sunrise Park is closed following the fall of a half-dozen trees.

Suffield sustained minimal damage in Monday's storm that devastated other portions of the East Coast, including southern Connecticut.

The worst storm damage appears to be at Sunrise Park, which is closed indefinitely pending removal of six trees which fell.

The most recent CL&P outage map showed 333 Suffield customers without power as of 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. Crews were seen working late Tuesday afternoon in the Boston Neck Road area of town, but CL&P has not announced an estimated timeline for power restoration.

All Suffield schools will re-open Wednesday. Suffield town offices and the Kent Memorial Library have resumed normal business hours. All garbage collection will be one day later than normal.

Voter registration has been extended until 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, and the national and state election will go on as planned on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Polls in Suffield will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.

And don't forget about the Special Town Meeting on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the middle school auditorium. There are several items on the agenda to appropriate or borrow money for infrastructure projects and purchase open space. See the attached PDF for more details or log onto the town's website.
