Hurricane Sandy – Recovery and PSE&G Restoration Update – November 2, 2012 @3PM

2 November 2012 218 views No Comment

Dear Resident,

I had the opportunity to participate in a conference call with President Obama and Governor Christie. The message is clear: all local, county, state, and federal efforts are focused on getting New Jersey back up and running as soon as possible. We are all in this together. Please forward this and future updates to any City resident who may not have received this information.

Restoration of Electricity There is a city-wide power outage in Englewood. PSE&G is working to restore electricity to every neighborhood as quickly and safely as it can. It must first address outages at water treatment facilities, hospitals, and police and fire stations. PSE&G announced that it that it will take at least 5 days for electricity to return but it could take until Friday, November 9th for full power restoration. We must be patient. If you do not have power and you have not yet reported the outage, please call PSE&G at 1-800-436-7734.

Election Day Voting Every registered voter in Englewood will be able to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6th. Please see below for polling locations.

School Closure Due to power outages, all Englewood schools are closed until at least Wednesday, November 7th. The Greico and McCloud Schools will host supervised recreational activities for K-8 on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. Please visit http://www.epsd.org/ for more information.

Fuel Shortage Due to difficulty transporting fuel into New Jersey, residents across the region face extensive lines and wait times at gas stations. We advise that you do not drive unless necessary. Please take the fuel shortage seriously.

Clearing City Streets The Department of Public Works cleared away most trees that are not entangled in electrical wires. PSE&G must service trees entangled in electrical wires before we can remove them from our streets. This is a critical public safety procedure. We are resuming regularly scheduled leaf pick-up.
Garbage Removal Regularly scheduled garbage removal has returned. Residents have disposed of perishable food items over the past several days and we are now clearing this out of the way.

Working Together We thank all residents for your cooperation and patience. Let us also remember how fortunate we are in Englewood, and send our thoughts and prayers for those whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. If you are in need of immediate assistance, you may call the Englewood Office of Emergency Management at 201-567-3124. To volunteer, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Andrea Katz at 201-871-6666 or frankhuttle@englewoodmayor.com.

Regards,

Mayor Frank Huttle III
