Borough Hall remains closed due to the power outage. Without power and phones, there is no way to connect to the internet, send out reverse 911 calls, or effectively communicate with the residents of New Milford to provide updates on what's going on in town in the wake of Sandy, Mayor Ann Subrizi told Patch.
However, officials want residents to know that all emergency services are in full operation and Borough Hall will re-open as soon as power has been restored.
"I want residents to know that our Police Department is fully staffed and on-call for any emergency," Subrizi said.
The Fire Department and Ambulance Corps are also fully staffed and on-call to respond to any emergency.
Subrizi reported that the DPW is fully staffed and working hard clearing all the debris from the streets and will continue to do so.
Regular trash collection is resumed. The next collection date for regular garbage will be Tuesday, November 6th.
"We are having trouble communicating with residents, but hope to be able to resume reverse 911 calls with general information asap," Subrizi said.
