While some residents have praised Patchogue Village for plowing out the streets from last weekend's winter storm, Route 112 and Waverly Avenue were specifically mentioned at Monday's Patchogue Village Board of Trustees meeting at Patchogue Village Hall as not being as clean.
Trustee Joseph Keyes said at the meeting that this is because they are state and county roads, respectively, and as a result the Village's Department of Public Works (DPW) are not currently able to plow them even though they each have sections within Village boundaries.
Keyes said that himself, Joe Dean of the DPW and Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri are talking about possibly making some sort of deal with Suffolk County and New York State so the Village can work on those roads.
"We agree and we might try to make some sort of arrangement with those municipalities," Keyes said during the meeting.
Roads outside of Patchogue Village, such as in North Patchogue, East Patchogue and Medford fall into the greater Brookhaven Town cleanup efforts.
