On Sunday the Village of New Hyde Park completed the first phase of its Emergency Post Strom Operations (Cleanup) according to an e-mail sent out from village officials.
“There are no locations in the village that would present an obstacle for LIPA, National Grid, Verizion, Water Authority, or Cablevision from completing their repair and restoration activity,” the message stated.
On Monday, the village will begin the second phase, – Assess and Correct Non Emergent Storm Related Damage – which will include evaluation of damaged trees and branches, removal of debris on village property and address other damage to village property (street lamps, street signs, etc.) as well as phase three – repair and reconstruction – which will include curb and sidewalk replacement along with some road repairs.
Mayor Daniel Petruccio and the village board “have been so grateful to the employees of the Department of Public Work for their tireless efforts to restore the village,” the message said. “However, our work is not done as we continue to pressure LIPA to complete their work and provide electrical power to all of our residents. We also would like to thank our resident’s for their patience and understanding as we continue to work in restoring our village.”
