PSE&G is working closely with Hasbrouck Heights officials to investigate reports of frequent random power outages in certain parts of the borough.
Earlier this week PSE&G representatives heard from a group of residents - the majority of whom reside on Oldfield Avenue - about the frequent outages they say they experience. Residents said over the past few years they get random outages they claim are unrelated to storms or other weather events.
Mike Kronyak, borough administrator, told Patch Friday that a PSE&G crew is expected to begin trimming trees along the circuit that encompasses Oldfield Avenue area this coming Tuesday to find what may be causing the random outages.
Also PSE&G tells the borough they have pushed up the scheduled date to remove trees in the area which are affecting power lines, said Kronyak.
Councilman David Gonzalez tells patch the borough wants to hear from others in town who may be experiencing problems so that the town can work with a master list in order to continue to work closely with PSE&G to find solutions.
A Washington Avenue resident, the councilman says he has recently noticed random outages at his residence and therefore questions if it happens in other areas of town.
"The more information we can get to feed to PSE&G the better equipped they can be to help residents," said Gonzalez.
They are asking residents to report issues to Borough Hall so they can compile a master list to share with PSE&G.
