Everyone in the Borough needs to know what to do in case a severe hurricane heads our way. The Borough will be working in conjunction with the Town of Stonington Emergency Management team and the town’s Human Services Department in the event of a hurricane.
These simple points are important:
1) The Town of Stonington website (www.stonington-ct.gov) has a comprehensive Emergency Management page. (Look under Quick Links on the Home Page) Click on Hurricane Information for excellent general instructions regarding supplies, preparing to evacuate, etc. Go to the NOAA link on their website for the most up-to-date weather forecast. The key here is: GET READY EARLY.
2) To assist Emergency Response personnel with identifying residents in need of assistance during a storm, the Town has created a Special Needs Registry. Anyone who is handicapped in any way – or simply needs transportation – should complete a form and send it to Stonington Human Services. The forms will be available from the Human Services Dept. (535-5015).
3) If necessary, the State of Connecticut and the Town of Stonington will declare a state of emergency. At that point, and only then, emergency personnel (fire, police, etc.) will notify residents of the emergency and the need to evacuate. In the event of a declared emergency, Stonington High School will be the designated shelter, and personnel will be there to assist.

After seven months of work, the Borough Charter Revision Commission forwarded its final report to the Board of Warden & Burgesses in mid-August. At its regular monthly meeting on August 20th, the Board unanimously approved the report, which is found here. The most significant changes in the revised charter are to reduce the number of burgesses on the Board from six to four; to consolidate commissioner duties among the five members of the Board; to make the position of clerk-treasurer an appointed rather than elected position; and to eliminate the position of tax collector. The revised charter will be on the ballot in the next Borough election in May 2019.
