Islip Officials Urge Precautions During Winter Weather

Islip, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter is asking residents to follow several precautions during snowstorms that will aid our plow crews and help create safer driving conditions. The most important suggestion is to remove cars from the road during any storm that requires plowing. Getting cars off of the streets allows our plowing crews to reach as much of the road as possible. Failure to remove cars from the road can result in a ticket.

In addition to removing cars from the street, residents are asked to refrain from clearing snow into the streets. This creates further obstacles for motorists. Instead, clear snow to either side of the driveway or walkway.   

Also, if residents are scheduled for garbage collection during a snowstorm, please either hold the garbage until the next collection day, or place trash cans a minimum of six feet back from curb or street.

“These are just a few helpful suggestions that will benefit residents and our plowing crews, who work around the clock during snow emergencies to make our roads safe for travel,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
