MOUNT VERNON - DPW crews across the Hudson Valley continue to clean snow and ice off of the roadways for drivers.

Mount Vernon's Department of Public Works says it had 16 crews salting and plowing the streets, covering 10 main routes.

Deputy Commissioner Ray Copeland and Commissioner Curtis Woods said that during the last storm, the DPW received several complaints, mainly because they were down seven vehicles.

During Tuesday's storm, they took extra precautions, having mechanics prep equipment to make sure they had enough salt in stock.

Mount Vernon has gone through more than 1,200 tons of salt so far this year. It can only store up to 600 tons at a time.

Commissioner Woods tells News 12 they have already requested more salt so they can be ready for the next winter blast.

Some residents in Mount Vernon took the day off from work on Wednesday to clean up after the snowstorm.
