When it comes to snow storms, at least those of us that live in Yorktown will not have to put up with Eric DiBartolo's conceited comments about himself on News12 or in the newspapers anymore. A special thanks to all the men and women of the Yorktown Highway Department. We the citizens of Yorktown appreciate all the hard work you have done for us. Now, finally, you the highway workers do not have to deal with Mr. DiBartolo's narcissistic personality disorder! Good luck Mr. Paganelli in your new position as Yorktown Superintendent of Highways!

All I care about is DiBartolo got the job done unlike this Christmas where my road wasn't sanded until 10:30 am.
Manfred Schultz January 02, 2014 at 12:46 PM
And why weren't the roads sanded? It's because DiBartolo couldn't care less about you and your problems. There was no reward in it for him. He's a celebrity wanna be. Without the local TV coverage from News12 or the Journal newspaper, not to mention the internet news, he's just another person. Let's give credit where credit is due. It's the men and women of the highway department that made him the de facto celebrity he craved to be. Just wait and see. The roads in Yorktown will continue to be plowed, sanded and salted in the Winter and paved in the Summer because the highway workers take pride in their work. I'm sure News12 will miss DiBartolo's egocentric "look at me, I'm special" when they need a 15 second sound bite from a local superintendent of highways. Thankfully Mr. Paganelli is not that way and certainly not that type individual.

The roads were plowed with DiBartolo, they were not plowed this Christmas - under Mr Paganelli's watch.
Jay Gussak January 03, 2014 at 06:07 PM
Mr. Paganelli did not take over until January 1. Christmas was still under the watch of Mr. DiBartolo.

Well, we've just had three car slide backwards (without wheels turning) while trying to get up Van Cortlandt. We knew that there would be freezing rain today, why no sanding of the roads?
