JCP&L Has Not Met Their Restoration Timeframe, Mayor Says
New target for complete power restoration in Morristown is Saturday, Tim Dougherty says.
To the Editor:
The current weather system will increase in severity over the next 3-5 hours. Please be cautious, stay away from down wires, trees and poles and stay off the road as much as possible.
At this point JCP&L has not met it's 10-day time frame for power restorations. With the current weather system and recent accidents in town, a half to a full day of restoration efforts have been lost. We expect JCP&L to continue all efforts beginning again tomorrow (Thursday).
I hear and understand the frustrations of those residents that remain without power. It is important to know that we are pushing JCP&L for power restoration times. In the most recent communication with the JCP&L President, the new target for complete power restoration is the evening of Saturday, Nov. 10.
As information becomes available, I will continue to post on the town website, send out Nixle advisories, and update the Morristown Information line at 973-796-1911.
