Last month's winter storm brought snow to Western New York like some people have never seen before but some weren't prepared. 

Local officials want to make sure that the next time Western New York is hit hard, they along with their respective communities are ready.

Thursday some of those local officials will gather at East Aurora Village Hall to discuss what they can do differently the next time mother nature drops several feet of snow.

One of the biggest problems during last month's storm was the amount of abandon cars in the Southtowns, something that made cleaning up a headache.

"The abandon cars were huge," Orchard Park Police Officer Mark Pacholec said. "That started actually before the storm was declared a state of emergency or a travel ban (was in place), there were hundreds of cars just stuck."

Thursday's meeting is set for 1 p.m.
