Haddonfield Administrator Urges Residents to Call PSEG For Power Restoration
Sharon McCullough said Thursday PSEG apparently doesn't rate power restoration in Haddonfield a high priority.
Haddonfield borough Administrator Sharon McCullough said Thursday the cleanup of several massive trees across roadways here is being held up because PSEG hasn't removed downed power lines that are also at the locations.
McCullough said PSEG officials said they only had two phone calls from Haddonfield reporting power outages after Hurricane Sandy tore through the region on Sunday and Monday.
Don Sabia, 80, a resident of Woodland Avenue near West End Avenue said Thursday he was fed up with waiting for a a massive borough tree, that crushed his wife's Lexus and barricaded his second car in his driveway, to be cleared away. He was headed to Borough Hall Thursday afternoon to give someone a piece of his mind.
"We've been sitting like this since the day of the storm," he said. "I called PSEG and they said they would be out on the fourth and then called back again and they said it would be another 10 days. I feel pretty rotten about it."
Sabia said the power had already been cut to the electric lines draped across his sidewalk, but the massive oak tree remained.
McCullough urged residents who are fed up with waiting for this and five other areas like Woodland Avenue to be cleared to call PSEG at 1-800-436-PSEG to demand service and to get higher on its priority list.
