The main priority in Cheshire remains getting the power back on and making sure that those who are still without heat and electricity are attended to.
However, once normalcy is returned, the Town will be faced with a new reality: what to do with all the debris left over from a storm that knocked down numerous tress and limbs?
The Town of Cheshire announced on its website this morning that it will be cleaning up the debris once Town operations are returned to normal. However, no mention has been made as to when that action will begin.
The Town's website states, "details, instructions and a schedule will be provided soon."
When those details are announced, The Cheshire Herald will provide that information to all its readers.
Also, according to the Town's website, Cheshire High School will remain as a emergency shelter until power has been "substantially restored" to Cheshire. Dinner will be served once again this evening, however, tomorrow ready-made meals will be provided those at the shelter but dinner will not be served.
A decision on whether schools will open tomorrow has not yet been made. All Town departments are open, however, officials warned that, since Town Hall is still operating off of a generator, email and phone lines are being adversely affected.
Curbside trash pick-up will be made this week on a one-day delay.
As of 2 p.m. today, CL&P was reporting that approximately 4,000 residence, or 35 percent of its customers in Cheshire, were still without power. That number increased from a low of 32 percent reported early in the afternoon.
