Ice storm forces selectmen to cancel Wednesday night meeting; library closing early

Mother Nature isn't cooperating with Ridgefield's budget season.

The Board of Selectmen has cancelled its meeting Wednesday night following an all-day winter storm that featured snow in the morning and freezing rain in the afternoon.

The selectmen will resume budget talks Thursday night during an executive session at 6 p.m. The public meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Both sessions will take place in the lower level conference room in Town Hall.

Thursday night's agenda includes four budget discussions: information technology, Ridgefield Fire Department, Ridgefield Fire Department, and general budget.

Library closing

Also due to Wednesday's ice storm, the Ridgefield Library will be closing at 4 p.m. Feb. 7.  The Library will reopen on Thursday at 10 a.m.
