ARDSLEY, N.Y. - Ardsley Village Manager George Calvi announced Thursday that recent heavy rainfall has led to the overgrowth of vegetation that may obstruct road signs or visibility near intersections.
"According to our Highway Foreman, we have had in excess of 15 inches of rain in the last few weeks," Calvi said in a notice to residents. "In addition to all the areas which have been experiencing an abnormal flow of surface water, Mother Nature's efforts have caused our local vegetation to grow three-fold generating numerous visual obstructions at many intersections."
Calvi said the village was concerned with areas around traffic signs and asked for assistance from property owners in cutting back shrubs and high weeds.
"If your shrubs or weeds are now extending out in to the roadway and making it difficult for motorists to see around corners, please cut them back as much as you can," Calvi said. "Also, if you do discover traffic signs blocked that we haven't reached yet kindly leave a voice mail on the Department of Public Works phone at 914-693-0117."
