Mineola Residents Reminded to Move Cars After Snow this Weekend

National Weather Service issues snow advisory for Dec. 29-30.

The National Weather Service has issued a snow advisory for the Long Island area for December 29-30.

Mineola residents and businesses are reminded by village officials that all vehicles must be removed from all streets once 2 inches of snow has fallen.

Vehicles must remain off streets until 24 hours after snowfall ends or until plowing is completed, whichever event first occurs.

Code Enforcement officers will be on duty to enforce snow regulations.

Code enforcement officers should be ringing doorbells instead of ticketing cars of mineola residents. That is public service doing its best.

C. Lucente - what is so difficult to understand - if there is going to be 2 inches of snow put the car in the driveway or take it to a Village parking lot. Leaving cars on the street makes it a safety issue - clearing roadways, getting emergency vehicles down streets, clearing areas around school bus stops for when kids go back to school. I've lived in this area for sixty years - in some of the villages you used to have to take cars off the street all night during the winter, now we only have to take cars off when there is 2 inches or more of snow. Is that so tough or have we just gotten to be too much of a me generation. Maybe instead of the code enforcement officers ringing bells, the residents should show some civic responsibility!

Good for you Rick. I agree with you completely. It seems like if people don't get a personal invitation, then it's the village's fault. Personal responsibility. Sounds like a plan.

Truth be told I wish Code Enforcement would go out and ticket the people that leave the cars on the street. I have neighbours that have too many cars and end up parking in front of my house so I have to dig out my spots once they leave and the plow has been through. There never has been a ticket on their cars.

I still don't get why there's no overnight parking on certain streets in the village. Why are people that don't live in the area that are staying at a friends house overnight responsible for keeping their car off the street when there's no where to park the car because of these stupid mid 20th century regulations? It's absurd.

LK--There are plenty of village parking lots in which you can leave your car. The same people who complain about having to move their cars also complain when their street isn't plowed because of cars still parked on it.

SLJ, the problem with that is that people feel like they'll need to feed the meter if they're forced to move their cars into these lots either due to snow or because they have to wake up early to not get ticketed. There's not enough notice on the streets or in the parking lots to inform out of towners of these regulations. And then if these lots do get filled up, where is anyone supposed to put their car? Just doesn't make sense why these overnight regulations still exist. The snow, I understand, but not the overnight no parking rules.
