As snow begins to fall during a storm that is expected to continue through Friday and bring 6-12 inches of fresh powder, Supervisor Don Clavin has mobilized the Hempstead Town Snow Response Team and announced several postponements and cancellations of town programs and services. The Supervisor also urged residents to stay off the roads if possible and remain home during what is expected to be a long storm accompanied by sub-freezing temperatures and icy conditions.
“We strongly urge residents to take this storm seriously, as snow is expected to blanket the Town of Hempstead all day Thursday and continuing into Friday evening,” stated Supervisor Clavin. “The Hempstead Town Snow Response Team will be out in force throughout this storm to clear more than 1,200 miles of town roadways, and we ask that neighbors remain home so our crews can get the job done consistently and efficiently.”
Clavin and members of the Snow Response Team have been in constant contact strategizing for the storm and have been working along with members of the Town Board, including Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Bruce Blakeman, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilman Tom Muscarella and Councilman Chris Carini, along with Town Clerk Kate Murray and Receiver Jeanine Driscoll.
The Town of Hempstead has announced the following cancellations and service alterations during the storm:
