UPDATE ON SNOW REMOVAL--POWER OUTAGES
Release Date: February 27, 2010
Earlier this morning I spoke with officials at Con Ed and with Victor Carosi, Commissioner of Public Works about the power outages and snow removal efforts.
As of an hour ago we still have not plowed about 25 streets in Greenburgh, according to the commissioner. The reason: There are downed wires. Our crews cannot plow streets until Con Ed makes sure that the live wires are back where they should be. We are planning to send police cars out to the streets impacted to verify that the wires are still down. Once the wires are safe-- the streets will be plowed.
Con Ed officials have advised me that they will free up some additional crews which could speed up power restoration for some residents.
In the meantime -- some residents have volunteered to house families who are out of power in their homes. If you need this service, please call me at 438 1343 (cell) or at my home: 478-1219. You can also e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yesterday I was on the phone almost non stop ---and have been on the phone most of this morning. I promise to get back to everyone and am in constant communication with public works.
We apologize for the inconveniences.
