County, Town and Village Prepare for Storm

Long Island and the Massapequas braced for a Winter blast expected to come Thursday night into Friday.

As the storm approached, County Executive Ed Mangano, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and Massapequa Park Mayor Jeffrey Pravato made automated calls to residents urging them to stay off the roads.

"If at all possible please remove all cars from the street or move your car to the even numbered side of the street to allow our plows to work effectively in clearing the roadway," Pravato said in his message. 

He also reminded residents to shovel snow towards their property, not into streets.

The mayor said that the village will have eleven plows in operation and that village workers will be held through the night.

Village Hall will be open for anybody who needs to warm up on Friday.

In Oyster Bay, Venditto also urged residents to get cars off the street along with basketball hoops. 

Residents who live near fire hydrants were asked to keep them clear. 

Sanitation and recycling pick-up have been suspended for Friday and all town activities, including programs at community centers have been cancelled until further notice.

County Executive Ed Mangano announced the closing of all County park activities to the public starting Thursday. Mangano also announced that visiting hours at the Nassau County Correctional Center are cancelled for Thursday and Friday.
