Snow Emergency Officially Ends in RVC

Overnight parking allowed again Friday; all major street clearing finished.

Officials called off the snow emergency status in Rockville Centre at about 3 p.m. Friday.

As the winter storm moved completely away from the northeast, crews plowed the last parts of snow off the road.

All parking passes that were in effect will be reinstated as of Friday evening.

While the emergency was in effect, some did not move cars from the street, with many receiving tickets.

"Unfortunately many people did not heed the snow emergency and left vehicles on the street which hampered plowing operations," said RVCPD Commissioner Charles Gennario.

While cars stuck on the street have been holding up plows, Gennario said the Village was well prepared for the storm. While he reported a "heavier than normal" call volume to the department, he said there were no major emergencies.

"Village Departments were extremely cooperative with each other and snow plowing and removal operations were conducted throughout the night and are continuing but from the police Department’s point of view, it has been extremely successful so far," he said. Read the full story here.

I was disgusted when I left my house yesterday at 8:30am. North Village Ave., Lincoln Ave and Woods Ave. were not plowed well at all. I am assuming they are secondary, major roads. Upon entering Oceanside, the secondary roads were much better. Long Beach Rd., even though it's a primary rd., was well plowed. Secondary rds. in Oceanside were also well plowed. It was obvious where you were driving. I see our tax dollars are being well spent!

Agreed, Stephanie. Total joke. I just moved here and am shocked at how poorly the roads were plowed. Very dangerous and just a real poor showing out of the RVC Village braintrust.

I believe some roads are the responsibility of the county.

Well, on the bright side, Maple avenue won "THis weeks most easily traversed trail" for the first time. So...you know...we have that going for us. -
