Islip: Help Snow Removal Effort By Keeping Cars Off Roads

Residents with a problem can call the emergency operations center at 595-3595.

Islip Town officials are asking residents to keep cars off the roads Tuesday and Wednesday so plows and sanders can do a more efficient snow removal and says the town's emergency operations center has been active since it was opened mid day Tuesday.

The town, which declared a state of emergency effective at noon,  began prepping for the second blizzard of 2014 on Saturday by getting trucks ready and equipment in place, according to a town spokesperson.

Early Tuesday morning they began laying down brine on emergency routes and began salt and sand spreading at noon. 

Residents who have an issue or concern can call the town's emergency operations center at 595-3595 or 224-5600.
