Chapter 162 VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC
Section 162-6. No parking during and after snowfall
The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Port Washington North does hereby
find that an emergency exists at any time snow is permitted to accumulate on the streets
of the Village of Port Washington North and that certain acts and omissions of the
inhabitants of the Village impede the removal of snow. It is further found that such acts
and omissions, by impeding the removal of snow from the streets of the Village, also
impede the provisions of fire, police and ambulance service to the residents of the Village

reasons, the Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Port Washington North
enacts the following provisions.

snow emergency shall be deemed to exist whenever three inches of snow or more is
predicted to fall by the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management within a
twenty four hour period.
B. No motor vehicle shall be returned to the public highway and/or street until the
public highway and/or street has been plowed by the local municipality and the
emergency has been lifted by the Village of Port Washington North.
C. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter 162-6.A, the snow emergency
regulations shall not be applicable to the following streets: Mill Pond Road, east side of
Waterview Drive, and Soundview Drive only between the cross streets of Dock Lane and
