This is another storm recovery update from the Village of Flower Hill. While we are lucky and our Village has not suffered fatalities or injuries we do have a lot of downed trees and debris to manage. Our team has worked diligently to clear all our roads and are in the process of addressing debris.

Like you I am frustrated with PSEG’s response and the fact that restoration times have been pushed back. I would encourage everyone to prepare for restoration times to take longer than PSEG has communicated possibly even taking into the weekend in some cases. As we continue to get more definitive information we will update you on power restoration. I have been in touch with the County Executive, the Town and our local Mayors and we will continue to advocate on our residents behalf.

The Village has arranged for a contractor to pick up branches and limbs left at the curb this Sunday starting at 7am and they will be working throughout the day. They will not be able to remove tree trunks or logs so residents will have to work with their own landscapers or tree companies for their removal.

Finally, Village Hall does have power and we are open if residents need to get cool or power up their electronics. Due to COVID we will have to take precautions and will limit times and have distancing measures in place.

Thank you and stay safe!
