Hurricane Sandy -memo 2--PLANNING FOR THE STORM
Release Date: October 26, 2012

Our public works crews are trying to be proactive -anticipating Hurricane Sandy. Our crews are checking drains--cleaning out clogged drains. Our new local law requiring leaves to be bagged or mulched is helpful because there are many fewer leaf piles on the streets this year than any previous year. We have been able to use our employees more efficiently.
I am authorizing overtime for Saturday (anticipated cost to town- under $10,000) so we can continue inspecting drains around town. Yesterday, I sent out an e mail to residents who have had flood problems in the past asking for their help in advising us of drains that need to be checked out. Received many responses--and we're following up on your requests. Have also forwarded other requests (re: branches near Con Ed wires) to Con Ed and they have been responsive.
I also spent some time this afternoon knocking on doors of local businesses and homeowners (including those in Elmsford) that have experienced major flood problems advising them of the towns efforts -trying to be proactive. Will continue to do some more outreach before the storm.
In the event of flooding (if Hurricane Sandy does happen), please feel free to e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. My cell phone is 438 1343. My home phone is 478-1219. My office is 993-1540.
