South Orangeâ€™s Board of Trustees have unanimously passed a resolution that requests the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to investigate PSE&Gâ€™s dissemination of information in regard to the recent early snowstorm that plagued the area.
Village President Alex Torpey told South Orange Patch that every person at PSE&G that he spoke to over the weekend of the storm gave him different information. â€śLegislators and the governorâ€™s office on the Friday after the storm were not happy with the kind of information that we were getting.â€ť
South Orange Patch reported that according to PSE&G, 6,000 homes were without power on October 30, the day after the storm hit. Power was fully returned to the town the following Saturday, a week later.
Two PSE&G supervisors were in the field at the time, receiving every communication from village officials. And village officials kept in constant contact with people at PSE&Gâ€™s government affairs.
