[ARCHIVED] 1533 out of power...update downed wires...relaxed organic waste pickup

1533 people (unincorporated) were out of power at 6:45 PM. Village police depts have info for villages. Con Ed working thru the night, so numbers will go down. Please report downed wires to DPW or police. Info below on efforts to help clean up town

I just got off the phone with the police. As of 6:45 PM 1,533 people  in unincorporated Greenburgh were without power. Con Ed will be working all night restoring power to residents of Greenburgh so the numbers will continue to go down.  Some people contacted me recently - they read an earlier report that Con Ed was planning to restore power to their homes and so far they have seen no crews. It’s possible that power can be restored late tonight. Con Ed hasn’t forgotten you. There was substantial damage from the storm and some of the restorations are taking time.


 it was very apparent that residents need to report any type of grounded or hanging wires. You can e mail and copy me at   All of which should be treated as a live wire and considered very dangerous


We realize that everyone who is out of power is very stressed (an understatement). We also recognize that the forecast this week is for heat and humidity.  On top of the covid months and lack of power and now residents stuck with access rotting food and damaged items, I have authorized the following: 

   -The organic pick up has been relaxed for the week (per Comm. Carosi)

   -All extra food waste and two small items can be placed at the curb away form the our town issued cans will be picked up with "an old school pick up"

      -We  will try to set up dumpsters in targeted areas towards the end of the week for bulk drop off.

I have authorized overtime of DPW crew members to help expedite the service ---we anticipate that FEMA will reimburse us for much of the storm related expenses
