Overnight Snow Keeps Workers Busy in Massapequa Park

Streets cleared by Wednesday morning according to mayor.

For the second time in less than a month the Massapequas had to dig out from a major snow storm, but this time plows got an earlier start.

Unlike the last storm, which fell during nighttime hours, the snow started during the day Tuesday.
THat gave workers a chance to get streets cleaned by Sunrise, according to Massapequa Park mayor Jeffrey Pravato, who said he manned a plow from 7 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. 

"Were doing excellent," said Pravato, adding that streets and parking lots in the village have been cleared.

Pravato said that residents cooperated by taking cars off the street.  "The response was much better than last time," he said. "There were still a few cars, but for the most part people listened to us." 

Meanwhile, Massapequa began to get back to normal Wednesday as the library re-opened at at 11 a.m. It was a shortened day as the announced a 5 p.m. closing.

I would not use the word excellent. I drove through Park Blvd yesterday (Wed) afternoon, that was good, once you go into the residential areas, it looks like it was never plowed. This morning (Thur) I dropped my child at the High School, the clean up was embarrassing. Cartwright was a mess! The side streets to the school were a mess. Before any politician wants to pat themselves on the back, look past your block, your block will always be clear.
