Statement from the Village of Flower Hill on Admonishment of Trustee Kate Hirsch

Board of Trustees votes to admonish Trustee Hirsch after the conclusion of an independent investigation into harassment complaints by Village staff members. Manhasset, NY (September 1, 2020) Today, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Flower Hill voted to admonish Trustee Kate Hirsch for inappropriate conduct after the conclusion of an independent investigation carried out by the law firm of Berkman, Henoch, Peterson, Peddy & Fenchel, PC into two separate complaints of workplace harassment filed against her by village staff members as required by law. The workplace harassment complaints were filed with the Village after an incident in Village Hall that took place in front of several staff members this past February and a second separate incident weeks later. The independent investigation was delayed by the COVID-19 shutdown and was focused on violations of Title VII and the NYS Human Rights Law. “I am saddened that last night our Village Board had to take actions to reprimand a member of our Board of Trustees for inappropriate and offensive comments to our staff. After receiving the report by the independent investigators, it was clear that the statements and actions Trustee Hirsch was accused of did take place and that the  … Read more

8/11/20 Power Outage Update from Mayor Herrington

Hello-This is the August 11th Village of Flower Hill storm recovery update. I am happy to report that the Village has had the majority of power restored to residents but pockets of outages still remain. The Village staff and I will not stop until we get confirmation that every resident has had power restored.   Given PSEG’s continued issues with identifying outages I am asking residents without power to call our Village Hall or email us at info@villageflowerhill.org with your address and contact info so we can follow with PSEG as well. Continue to treat downed wires as live and do not approach them.   We are scheduling another limb and branch pick up for this weekend and will provide further details when they have been finalized. We apologize to anyone that we were not able to get to this past Sunday. Some additional updates for everyone:   -PSEG will be doing some surveying of the power lines on the island by helicopter so please do not be alarmed if you hear a low flying helicopter in the area.   -We have been informed that residents are responsible for damaged or displaced mast-poles and must work with their own electricians  … Read more


Mayor’s Letter to President of PSEG 8-11-20

August 11, 2020   Daniel Eichorn , P.E. President & CEO, PSEG Long Island Uniondale, NY   Dear Mr. Eichorn I am writing to you today to express my Village’s displeasure and frustration with PSEG’s response to Tropical Storm Isaias regarding power restoration and ongoing communications failures. Currently, over half of the Village of Flower Hill is without power and estimates for restoration continue to change and be pushed back. Many residents are exasperated as this is the same experience they had after Super Storm Sandy. The number one issue is that we need crews in our community now. It has been forty-eight hours since the storm and residents have not seen PSEG restoration personnel in the community. These PSEG customers have been abandoned. The only PSEG personnel I have spoken with in person has been assigned to keep an eye on a two day old live wire. They repeatedly tell me someone is supposed to be dispatched to turn it off at the end of their shift and then that does not happen. This is unacceptable from a safety and communications perspective. Flower Hill is currently being under reported for the number of outages because of the communications failure  … Read more


PORT WASHINGTON PENINSULA MAYORS DEMAND ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FROM PSEG & LIPA

August 10, 2020   Thomas Flacone, CEO Long Island Power Authority 333 Earle Ovington Blvd. Suite 403 Uniondale, NY 11553   Daniel Eichorn, P.E. President & CEO, PSEG Long Island 333 Earle Ovington Blvd. Uniondale, NY 11553   Dear Mr. Falcone & Mr. Eichorn, We Village Mayors are contacting you collectively representing various parts of Manhasset, Port Washington, and Roslyn to demand immediate deployment of additional resources into our communities. Our residents and our teams have patiently tried to work cooperatively with little to no operational support. Our communities continue to manage serious public health situations presented by downed lines, COVID-19, and residents now not having power for six days. The continued delaying of restoration times and lack or operational support is unacceptable. Despite all of the failures throughout the PSEG system of operations and communications, the people of PSEG, like our municipal representative team, led by Kim Kaiman, and our crews on the ground are operating professionally under the harshest conditions including systematic failure. While billions of dollars have spent to improve the system since Superstorm Sandy, we can tell you this region is experiencing the same failures. While we are aware that crews have been called in from  … Read more


8/10/20 Update

This is the August 10th Village of Flower Hill storm recovery update. Yesterday saw significant progress throughout the Village on power restorations for many residents, however PSEG still has more to do. Like many of you I am still without power and continue to get conflicting reports from PSEG. Given all of this I am grateful for all of the out of state support we are receiving and encourage you to thank these men and woman.   Our staff is working tirelessly to stay on top of PSEG with the information you are providing us. Given residents continue to experience outages I am encouraging residents who are still without power to call our Village Hall or email us at info@villageflowerhill.org with your address and contact info so we can follow with PSEG as well.   Due to the extensive damage the multiple crews we had working yesterday to do branch and limb pick up were not able to get through the entire Village. Please do not worry we will be scheduling another pick up day to finish the job.   -Continue to treat downed wires as live and do not approach them   -Please assist any crews that come into  … Read more
