Blizzard Clean-Up Efforts Underway

January 4th, 2018 – Considering the blizzard-like conditions experienced today as a result of Winter Storm Grayson, the continued clean-up efforts pose challenges throughout Islip Town. Due to the unusual frigid road temperatures, ice remains a problem, and high winds continue to pummel our area. Be assured that Town of Islip employees and hired vendors have been on the road plowing since early Thursday morning, and will continue to do so to make our roads passable and safe, for both our residents and our emergency service vehicles. Please bear with us as we work diligently to accomplish our goals. As we get further into the process, we will keep residents informed. To report a problem contact the Office of Constituent Services at (631) 224-5380.

Supervisor Carpenter Declares State of Emergency in Islip

January 4th, 2018 – Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter declared a state of emergency in the Town of Islip at 12:01 am Thursday, January 4th, in response to Winter Storm Grayson, a severe winter storm in the Town of Islip, that brought heavy snow and icing, strong winds, extreme low temperatures, impassable roads, potential coastal flooding and other blizzard related hazards.

“Visibility is very poor, winds are high and driving conditions are extremely dangerous,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Such conditions imperil the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town of Islip. I’m urging everyone to stay safe and stay indoors. If you have an elderly or homebound neighbor, I would ask that you check on them when it’s safe to step outside,” she added.


Town Officials Prepare for Storm Grayson

January 3rd, 2018 – Town Officials spent the day monitoring the storm track of Grayson, set to hit Long Island early Thursday, bringing anywhere between 5-11” of snow before it ends Thursday evening. Supervisor Angie Carpenter, along with Public Safety and DPW personnel, implemented storm preparation procedures Wednesday, and were in constant communication with school superintendents, preparing for possible school and recreation center closings Thursday.

“We’re in storm preparation mode,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Temperatures are expected to drop into the single digits, with wind chills making the ‘feel-like’ temperature negative double digits. Please keep your cars off the roadways, so that Town equipment can pass safely and effectively, remove basketball hoops from the streets, and stay indoors, unless absolutely essential that you go outside. We want our residents and our crews to weather this storm safely,” she said.

The Town of Islip DPW is prepared with 15,000 tons of salt and 10,000 yards of sand/salt mixture. When the Town’s plow operation is implemented, more than 400 plows, including the Town’s Parks and Waste Management division, will be fueled, loaded with material and on the road.

Temperature highs have been forecast not to exceed 20°F, with overnight lows expected in the teens and single digits.

“The senior population, as well as the frail elderly, are particularly vulnerable during extreme cold temperatures. I encourage residents to take the necessary precautions and share this information with loved ones who may be at risk,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
