Valley Indy Radio: Retiring Seymour Police Chief Michael Metzler

Seymour Police Chief Michael Metzler is retiring in June after 30 years as the town’s top cop.

He also spent just over a decade on the job in Ansonia.

In this free-wheeling episode of “Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast,” Metzler talks about what it was like to patrol Ansonia in the late 1970s, how he tried to keep external politics out of the Seymour Police Department, and what’s changed in law enforcement since 1976.

Storm Cleanup Progresses In Seymour

First Selectman Kurt Miller said he’s “cautiously optimistic” that power will be restored to much of Seymour by late Friday night.

Miller said Eversource, the utility company, published the restoration estimate on its website Thursday.

“I think that’s probably a number we can use realistically. That’s their hope for having 100 percent back,” Miller told The Valley Indy.

Much Of Oxford And Seymour Still Without Power, Two Tornadoes Confirmed

The National Weather Service issued a statement late Wednesday saying that tornadoes touched down in Beacon Falls and Oxford Tuesday.

The Beacon Falls tornado had winds of 110 mph and moved along a 9.5 mile path between Beacon Falls and Hamden, according to the National Weather Service.

The Oxford twister had 100 mph winds and moved along a path of 4.5 miles. They didn’t give a precise location, but said it moved into Southbury. More detailed info could be released Thursday.

Meanwhile, storm wreckage and the loss of electricity forced officials in Oxford and Seymour to cancel schools Thursday.

Derby Public Schools will have a 2-hour delayed opening Thursday. Parents should closely monitor TV and radio Thursday morning to make sure the delay does not change.

Ansonia Schools Sue City Hall

Ansonia’s Board of Education has filed a lawsuit asking a judge to prevent the city from taking $600,000 from the school board’s budget for 2017-2018.

A marshal served city officials with the lawsuit Wednesday (May 16) afternoon, ending weeks of debate among Board of Education members about whether or not to sue the city over a vote by Aldermen in January to cut the school district’s budget in the middle of the year.

Eversource: ‘Prepare For Multiple Days Without Power’

Due to the large numbers of downed trees and wires, Seymour residents could be in for a long wait before power is restored.

“There is no current estimate for power to be restored. Expect prolonged power outages for multiple days,” according to a statement from the Seymour Police Department.

In addition to the obvious damage, three of the five electrical substations in Seymour were damaged during Tuesday evening’s quick but powerful rain and wind storm, First Selectman Kurt Miller said.

“At this point they are telling us it’s probably going to be a few days before power is fully restored,” Miller said.

Storm Damage Cancels Schools, Causes Power Outages

A weirdly powerful spring-time storm tore through the state Tuesday, canceling school in Derby, Seymour and Oxford, and leaving thousands without power into Wednesday.

There’s no telling how long the power will be out.

Derby Superintendent Matthew Conway sent an email 7:30 a.m. Wednesday saying schools were closing due to downed trees wreaking havoc on bus routes, the staff’s inability to get to work, and a water issue at the high school.
