Weather Alert

Village Offices will be open today, Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Our Department of Public Works will continue to work to clear snow with their fleet of 25 plow trucks, 6 salt spreaders, 5 pay loaders and wheel loaders. To increase your safety and aid in snow removal, we are asking you to stay off the roads and park all cars in driveways, for as long as possible.  Please keep in mind that plows will be working for the duration of the storm and for several hours after the snow stops.  When shoveling out driveways or parked cars on the street, please shovel and pile snow onto the area between the curb and sidewalk, not in the street. 

Due to the cold weather forecast for the next few days, secondary roads may be slick until temperatures rise, so please drive with caution and stay off the roads whenever possible.  Your safety is our priority.  We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

If you would like to report a non-emergency matter please call our VillageLine at 516-478-6333.  Be sure to check this site for information on road closures or any special announcements. Please keep in mind the following cautions:

  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • To facilitate snow plowing, relocate cars off street where possible
  • When shoveling out, don’t throw snow back into roadways
  • Assist the Fire Department by clearing fire hydrants near your property
