Elected, labor and utility officials in Rockland County today marked the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, saying the area is better prepared to handle a devastating storm. They announced an agreement with local labor they say should prevent a repeat of one of the major problems.
They stood on a residential street in New City, in the Town of Clarkstown, New York state Senator David Carlucci among them.
A New York State Senate Bipartisan Task Force has issued its first report regarding how to move forward with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. One of their recommendations concerns the response of utility companies during and after a major storm.
