WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK, SEA CLIFF DPW BATTLES FIRST MAJOR STORM OF 2015
January 27, 2015 -- Although never quite reaching official "blizzard" status in this area, Monday and Tuesday's snow storm dumped about a foot of snow on Sea Cliff and surrounding North Shore communities.
Working around the clock over a 24 hour period, nine members of the Sea Cliff Department of Public Works battled through the wind gusts and driving snow to clear Village streets. Village Administrator John Mirando said that the workers "did an excellent job keeping the roads open all night in very severe weather conditions allowing for any emergency response that might be necessary." By 1 pm on Tuesday all roads were open for local traffic.
Local restaurants the Metropolitan Bistro, with the help of Shane Dommin, and Still Partners contributed to the effort providing meals to weary workers.
Asked whether the storm would impact the sewer construction, Mr. Mirando said that "we will lose three days, which could possibly be made up at a later part of the project."
Praising DPW's efforts, Mayor Bruce Kennedy said, "Our men are second to none. They continue to make the administration proud and have provided exceptional service to our residents."
Mr. Mirando, agreed and extended his "personal thanks to each of them - Johnny G, Gary, Will, John C., Hugo, Don, Tyler, Brian and Vincent."
