Villages clean-up on Saturday
Cedarhurst plows parking fields, Lawrence redoes primary roads
The villages of Cedarhurst and Lawrence continued snow clean-up on Saturday.
Mayor Andrew Parise said staff began work at 6 a.m. on Jan. 4 to ensure that Cedarhurst's 10 parking lots are entirely clear for vehicles.
"We arw watching for ice, but we want to get the parking fields cleared," said Parise, adding that the village also cleared snow from the metered parking spots and the handicapped-accessible walkways. Metered parking was not enforced on Jan 3.
Replowing Rockaway Turnpike and Broadway, where the county didn't get to, was Lawrence Mayor Martin Oliner's priority for Saturday.
"People shoveled snow into the street so we will get that cleaned up," Oliner said. The matyor said the village is keeping on eye on the roads for icing and will salt and plow where needed throughout Lawrence.
The flooding that has occured in some other South Shore Nassau communities has not occurred in Lawrence and Cedarhurst. But with temperatures expected to rise Sunday and Monday into the 50s and rain expected, that remains a possibility. Oliner said all the village basins are being maintained. The village's snow emergency remains in effect, but will be lifted later on Saturday, he said.
Saturday's high is expected to be 28° with partly sunny skies.
