I thought the Town of North Hempstead did a good job of plowing the snow on the Terrace. They came early on Friday to apply salt and then continued to show up every few hours to plow as the snow developed.

Looks like it depends on what street you live on whether they did a good job plowing or not. For approx. 80% of our street they just went down once, with a pickup truck using a small plow. I had to literally shovel 8 feet out into the street from my driveway just to get to cleared road. When we called 311 to tell them about it they told us it was a temporary thing, they just made roads passable for emergency vehicles, and they'd be back to plow more. Guess what? They never came back. The street is still a 'one lane passage' deal due to their improper clearing. P.S. Streets adjacent to ours and also dead end were cleared for 2 lanes. So much for their excuse! Not happy, and they'll hear about again today! P.P.S. It's not like are taxes are low, either. Where's the better service??
