Tell Us: Potholes

Have you noticed them since the big weekend storm?

February means pothole season. Some residents have noticed new potholes emerged since the weekend’s big snowstorm.

The Town of North Hempstead has pledged in the past that once it is alerted via the 311 call center, it will fill any potholes on town roads within 48 hours. And, if the potholes reported are located on a Village, Nassau County or state road, the call center will provide the appropriate contact information.

Which leads to the question: Where are you noticing potholes? Have you reported them to the town? Tell us in the comments.

Sands PT road right in front of Sousa. Every year Manorhaven and Sands Point residents and school children are disturbed by the massive potholes that sprout up this time of year. Yes surface fixes are great temporarily but this portion of the road up to the corner of Manorhaven Blvd has not been properly repaved in years. That might be a more permanent solution. Fix soon before a child walking to school falls through to the inner layers of the Earth !!!!

The new Superintendent of Port Washington Schools should be fired for not having at least early dismissal last Friday with repeated warnings of eminent Blizzard warnings. She put our children at risk along with the school bus drivers who have little respect from the general public. Also the person in charge of keeping our roads clear during snow storms should also be fired. The roads must be salted/sanded just as snowfall begins because the salt keeps the roads warm. Driving school buses with our children Fri. was extremely hazardous and those responsible must be held accountable. We pay high taxes for these services that were neglected.

Yes, all along Shore Road and other roads in Manorhaven. As a matter of fact, we have been driving around town for a couple of days and noticed that Manorhaven streets are the worst in terms of clean up after the storm. I saw a small plow come down Dunwood road, in the middle of the storm, but woke up to deep ruts in the road and we were still bouncing around between the ruts today, Monday, even after all the rain. For some reason, and I could hazard some guesses, Manorhaven streets have not been as important to officials in terms of plowing. When things freeze over at night, everything becomes more treacherous for drivers and pedestrians. Manorhaven residents pay taxes just like everyone else. I realize we are part of Nassau County, but our streets are not taken care of the way most of the Nassau County streets that I have been on are.

"Salt keeps the roads warm"?? Sure about that? If so, write it up as a dissertation, defend it, and with PhD in hand please apply for the superintendent position. You've got to be smarter than the bozo currently in the position, right?

You do not have to have a Phd to KNOW that our roads must be SALTED/SANDED as the snows starts to fall!!! If you wait for a couple of hours, he did not do his job! Further more and most important ! If one of the SCHOOL BUSES got into an accident and injured one of our children, I assure you that the poor low paid insignificant BUS DRIVER would have been fired. Even though the responsible parties in this case, the NEW Superintendant of Schools And the genious who takes care of our pitifull roads are not held accountable for their poor judgement and lack of common sense. Very cute Nassau Taxpayer. You must enjoy paying our highest in the nation taxes and get no accountability for it. You probably think all the right things were done in Benghazi as well, No Accountability!!! Phd's are a dime a dozen. I would much prefer to stay on the side of the safety of our children and residents of the town of ours.

Jack made the connection! The Benghazi-Nassau County link! Simply brilliant. I'll be looking for your testimony on C-Span. Please run for office, Jack. Yup, who needs a PhD when you just know, in your infallible gut, that "salt warms roads". Dime a dozen, indeed. (p.s. may want to get that sticky "Caps Lock" key fixed)

Nobody reads this patch stuff anyway! You are proof perfect ! All you do is criticize capitalized lettering and facts without looking them up ; re: salt on roads! I learned it from the gentleman that takes care of all the roads in NYC. And you just glean what you want instead of what the actual important facts that are being discussed really are. In this case the topic of discussion was, in capital letters for your sake, and I quote " THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN AND SCHOOL BUS SAFETY IN INCLEMENT, BLIZZARD WEATHER CONDITIONS". I guess I don't know "jack", but I stay on topic. Not like you who just throws out insults and irrelevant comments. Sort of like a pit bull. You should run for Congress so we can have another congressman or senator who doesn't READ the bills before he or she votes on them. Yes, your right, I don't know jack, Ha!

I suspect most who have posted things here either work for the school district, county or town, Just cya, ha!
