Tarrytown also issues this information, from administrator Mike Blau: Alternate side is suspended today. We will decide later whether it will be suspended for tomorrow. Village Hall is open during normal business hours although only essential personnel are at work. If there are power outages, we will then decide whether we will utilize Village Hall for charging purposes. The Main Street firehouse may be opened for shelter purposes. We have moved the sheltering trailer there but we have not opened the shelter. If it is ultimately opened, we will provide notice to you. If someone needs shelter, they should reach out the Police Department. (Tarrytown Police is: 631-5544)

Take it easy. Here's Hastings Mayor Peter Swiderski's position on the storm, left Sunday on the village website: "We’ve been through these sorts of events over the last couple of years a number of times - it is our "new normal". There is nothing normal about his storm, Mayor Swiderski. Been through these sorts of events a number of times? When was that? 500 years ago? He goes on to advise that you 'keep a sense of humor.' Sprinkle a reality on it, FOR ONCE. Just for taste.

Looks like Tarrytown is going to make a mint is parking fines today since they still are enforcing the alternate side of the street parking, unlike Sleepy Hollow who realized that with the storm, it is ridiculous to have street cleaners out anyway. Good job Tarrytown, for being so greedy and uncaring for the safety of your villagers.
