I am not typically one to toot my own horn, but Sea Cliff once again has set the standard for snow clean up. While the county and town roads were barely traversable, Sea Cliff streets were plowed and sanded, allowing for safe passage.
The real credit for this goes out to the hard-working men at the Sea Cliff Department of Public Works. These men worked for 27 straight hours, napping and eating when necessary at the garage. Residents were able to go to work on Monday morning (although once they left Sea Cliff the roads got treacherous) and Village Hall was open on time. The snow was completely removed from the streets and sidewalks of the business district within 24 hours, keeping our shops and restaurants open.
I would like to express my gratitude to the whole DPW staff and the tremendous leadership of John Mirando and Jimmy O’Donnell for your dedication and service to the residents of Sea Cliff. You guys sure make a mayor look good!
Bruce Kennedy, Sea Cliff Mayor
