Village crews worked throughout the night and have minimally opened up each road in the village so they are "passable." They continue to work with emergency and power outage streets as the priority.
Payloaders were used to remove snow from major intersections and roadway blockages and are now continuing their work in the parking lots. The sidewalk contractor is back today and continues to work on snow removal from sidewalks.
This has been a major blizzard dumping record levels of wet snow in record time. Mobilization efforts went into effect immediately, but the amount of snow and the pace at which it came down was very difficult to manage.
We ask all residents to please be patient, check on your neighbors and senior citizen friends. Please stay home if possible so we can ensure the safety of our Village and continue our work. Village Center and skating are closed today. All Village facilities will be open tomorrow.
For emergencies, please call code at (631) 774-0066 and highway continues to dispatch calls today until 4 p.m. after which the entire crew will be going home to get a proper rest.
