Halloween, Curbside Brush Suspension, and a Nor’easter
As of this afternoon, November 5th Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is reporting that there are still over 1,000 residents without power. My administration continues to communicate the needs of our residents who are without power to the proper utility companies in order to reach complete power restoration in Tinton Falls.
Unfortunately, JCP&L does not provide street by street updates to the Borough of Tinton Falls. However, we have been out there every day and night working to make sure full power is restored as soon as possible.
Halloween Postponed Until Full Power - Other towns including Eatontown and West Long Branch also postponed
Like many families in Tinton Falls, I too have young children; two beautiful daughters ages 5 and 3. However, many residents throughout the borough still do not have power and conditions remain unsafe as there are downed wires, damaged utility poles and diverted traffic throughout theses affected areas. Traditional Halloween activity in Tinton Falls has been cancelled for today and been postponed until all residents in Tinton Falls have 100% power.
The Borough of Tinton Falls did have its Annual Halloween Bash on Friday, October 26, 2012 at the Wayside Fire House where over 500 residents attended.
Curbside Brush Suspension -Roads need to be cleared for possible nor’easter
According to the National Weather Service, a nor'easter could hit the region on Wednesday into Thursday and produce strong winds and heavy rain. Please do not place any additional brush at the curb for collection until Saturday, November 10, 2012. This will allow the Department of Public Works to clear the existing brush in the borough and keep roads and storm drains free of debris to minimize flooding.
