Heights Back to Normal Two Weeks After Sandy

Borough will soon begin first steps towards applying for FEMA reimbursement

Hasbrouck Heights mayor and council will meet Tuesday for the first time since Hurricane Sandy struck the area which left thousands in the borough without power for several days, kept businesses closed and schools shut for a week.

Two weeks later the borough is back to normal as all power has been restored since Friday and all businesses had reopened since middle of last week.

Some discussion regarding storm recovery is expected during the work session portion of the meeting Tuesday.

Right now the borough is in the very early stages of beginning to apply for FEMA reimbursement for costs incurred from the storm, according to Borough Administrator/CFO Mike Kronyak. He expects more to be learned later this week.

The preliminary agenda for the regular public meeting includes an introduction of a bond ordinance for fire department gear and equipment. Also borough officials are expected to accept a resignation from Michael Thomasey from the volunteer fire department's Engine Company No. 2.

Also discussion regarding ongoing projects icluding the Boulevard Streetscape, athletic field improvements and the Woodland Park pavillion are on the agenda for the work session.
