New Canaan Week in Review

A look at the top news from the last week.

In case you missed a day, here's a quick roundup of all the lead stories from Stamford this week. There's always a lot going on, so take this opportunity to catch up if you missed something!

By far the biggest story impacting the most people this week was the Metro North's complete failure. A power failure on the lines caused commuters to seek out alternate means of travel and brought to a grinding halt roadwork across the state to ease traffic congestion. Area companies sought to help daily travelers in any way they could. 

In business news, the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce named a new president and several new board members and New Canaan Olive Oil officially opened its doors downtown

In police news, a woman was charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol after police arrived to a scene where her car was allegedly parked in the middle of the road, where she reportedly left it when she ran out of gas, a man was charged with interfering with police after a call where he allegedly pushed with his shoulder the mother of his ex-wife, with both of whom he still resides and New Canaan Animal Control reminded pet owners about the dangers of not having their animals vaccinated against rabies

In community news, two New Canaan women help organize the Blessings in a Backpack food drive for 100 Stamford students in need and we previewed the upcoming KidzFest Touch-a-Truck event coming to Norwalk and featuring municipal and emergency response vehicles from throughout the county.
