MANGANO LAUNCHES AGGRESSIVE POTHOLE REPAIR PROGRAM WITH CITIES, TOWNS & VILLAGES

Pathole Repair Program

Urges Residents to Call or Use Nassau Now App to Report Potholes

Mineola, NY - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello, Long Beach City Manager Jack Schnirman and Westbury Village Mayor Peter Cavallaro, President of the Nassau County Village Officials Association (NCVOA) today announced a joint response to Mother Nature’s destruction of our roadways. Under a new aggressive Countywide Pothole Repair Plan, municipalities will share reported pothole complaints in “real-time” so that highway crews can be dispatched to address road conditions with urgency.

“The winters repeated freeze and thaw cycles have created a pothole crisis that has impacted everyone,” said County Executive Mangano. “Our joint efforts to fill potholes will help to maintain the highest level of safety for vehicles and pedestrians on roadways. Nassau repairs potholes on County roadways within 24 hours of a report; however, I have launched a Saturday Pothole Repair Patrol to enhance our efforts and invite residents to report a pothole by calling (516) 571-6900 or using the Nassau Now application on your smartphone or mobile device. The app will enable a photograph to be taken of the area and sent to the County with the GPS location.”

“Working together, Nassau County and other local governments can respond quickly and efficiently in our efforts to repair potholes,” said Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray. “I want to thank County Executive Mangano for addressing this problem in a thoughtful and comprehensive manner.”

“The Town of Oyster Bay is happy to partner with Nassau County in this aggressive program to help rid our streets of dangerous and unsightly potholes as soon as possible,” Town Supervisor John Venditto said. “While the Town of Oyster Bay has always been as expeditious as possible when it comes to filling potholes, especially after a tumultuous winter such as this one, this type of inter-municipal cooperation can only help to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our residents and their vehicles.”

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth stated, “Inter-municipal coordination is critical to efficient government especially when it comes to repairing potholes, which can damage our vehicles and be a hazard for pedestrians. We will continue to communicate with Nassau County, New York State and the Villages in our Town to share information on pothole locations so that they are addressed as soon as possible. The Town will continue its promise of filling potholes about which we are notified within 2 business days."

City of Glen Cove Mayor Spinello stated, “The City of Glen Cove has already begun an aggressive campaign filling potholes on our local streets. With the ongoing assistance of Nassau County DPW which maintains 16 major roads within our city limits the repairs are being performed on a daily basis. We appreciate the County’s initiative of providing easy access for reporting of pothole damage to county roads within our city limits.”

“Working together with Nassau County will help ensure driver and pedestrian safety on our roadways,” said Long Beach City Council President Len Torres. “To date, Long Beach crews have filled nearly 2,000 potholes in our City alone. Residents can use the Long Beach Response app for City streets and the Nassau Now for Nassau County roadways.”

Peter Cavallaro, Westbury Village Mayor and President of the Nassau County Village Officials Association, stated, “Nassau’s villages are also plagued with potholes on village roadways, as well as on county and town roads in and around our villages. We are pleased that the county and towns are joining to make sure that potholes are addressed in an expedited fashion. The VOA will work with our member villages to make sure that village personnel report potholes on county and town roads as soon as they become aware of them.”
