(Monticello, NY - 10:15 AM) - Sullivan County Manager David Fanslau has issued an update on the Winter Storm cleanup from the Halloween weekend snow storm:
Fanslau said, “As of 10:00 AM today, the Sullivan County Division of Public Works (DPW) crews have completed all tasks associated with the Halloween weekend winter storm. All County Roads, parking lots, etc, are clean and open. All County offices will be open for normal business hours on Monday, October 31, 2011.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting a sunny day with a high temperature of 41 in Monticello. However, the low temperature forecast for Sunday night are 28 degrees, which may cause refreezing and some icing issues. However, the NWS forecasts sunny days for the remainder of the week ahead, with temperatures above freezing at night, and highs during the day that will likely assist with removing the accumulated snow.
Sullivan County officials are continuing to monitor the efforts of the utility providers that serve Sullivan County, for power service restoration. We have been told that Orange and Rockland Utilities and NYSEG have crews throughout the region addressing power service restoration needs, and cleanup of downed trees from the storm on power lines.
Residents and visitors are urged to visit the County website, www.co.sullivan.ny.us, for current news and information.
Finally, I want to publicly thank our dedicated DPW staff for working over this weekend to keep County roads open and safe, and address cleanup needs at County facilities. A job well done by DPW!
