Everyone has been through a rough patch and I am sure the town is doing what it feels is best to deal. Many in town still have no power and many children are still not back in school. While it was a nice gesture to have the last town hall conference call, honestly, not much information was given other than PSEG is working on it. It would be nice to have a town hall meeting specifically related to this topic, where people can come in person and ask specific questions of town officials, other government officials, PSEG, FEMA, the police, fire, and Board of Ed. The Mayor's voicemail is full and can not accept messages and emails seem to get accumulated, but not responded to. It seems many of the BOE decisions are dependent upon the town, so a joint meeting would be beneficial. There are many questions which are unanswered (i.e. power restoration, streets being cleared, schools opening, how days will be made up for school, what Federal and State funding is the town receiving regarding this storm, where is FEMA for those in town without power or heat, the decision process on opening school, why does the BOE not have any social media outlet to communicate other than personal Facebook and Twitter pages, why was the school District Website down for a week, etc.). Perhaps residents in town have some out of the box ideas about resolution of some items, as well as preventive measures going forward (i.e. burying the power lines, etc). How and when can we make this happen?
