Day 9: Borough Updates Residents on Storm Progress

Glen Rock reminds residents that two of six voting locations have changed, provides miscellaneous information on power restoration, council meeting postponements, and fire prevention tips, among others.

The Borough of Glen Rock provided updates to its residents on the continuing rebuilding process of Hurricane Sandy Monday. A few streets have been brought back to life by PSE&G but most remain without electricity.

Glen Rock also updated its residents on polling stations for the election, a lack of curbside pickup on Wednesday. Make sure to take a look. 

  • The process of power restoration is finally underway. PSE&G crews are clearing trees and wires. A number of streets came back on line yesterday afternoon and today, with more expected tomorrow. That said, downed wires remain a safety hazard.
