Chief of Police Frank Papapietro, who also heads New Milford's Office of Emergency Management, continues to press PSEG to restore New Milford's power that was compromised during last week's Hurricane Sandy.
"Although most of the town's power has been restored, there are still pockets in the southern part of town that remain without power," Papapietro said. "Specifically Birchwood," he added.
Wednesday morning, Papapietro once again reached out to PSEG requesting an update on outages and requested an ETA on when power would be restored, stressing the fact that residents in this area were on day 10 without power.
"Also, a nor'easter is headed our way Wednesday evening," Papapietro said. Within the hour, three PSEG trucks were on Birchwood working on the lines.
If you still have no power in your house or business, or if it was restored but has since gone out, please notify Chief Papapietro at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will contact PSEG directly.
