GAS STATION CREATES PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE-
Release Date: May 17, 2004

GreenburghTown Supervisor Paul Feiner said that a gas station on Central Avethat is selling gas at prices below competitors is creating major traffic jams at all hours of the day and evening –creating a public safety problem for the town. As a result, the town will be considering some legislative actions to address this problem. In recent weeks cars have been waiting in both direction on Mt Joy to turn into the Hess Station at the corner of Central Ave. There is a backup. Residents who live on Westminsterhave had to wait several minutes. It’s dangerous…it’s frustrating. Cars are also doing u turns on Mt Joy, which has bad sight lines with drivers coming down the hill at fast speeds.  Feiner said that last night he was returning home close to midnight. Cars were lined up waiting to pump gas even at that late hour.

I have spoken to the Police Chief. We will be recommending, at the next Town Board meeting (May 26) that the Town prohibit left turns into the station westbound into Mt. Joy Ave.In addition, police are periodically visiting the site and moving cars or issuing tickets. In addition, we’re exploring other options.
