Signs of Progress in Port Chester: New Utility Poles Being Installed

About 1,500 Con Ed customers remain without power in Port Chester.

About 1,500 Con Ed customers in Port Chester remain without power this afternoon — a week after Hurricane Sandy slammed our area.

"Here in Port Chester, thanks to (Village Manager) Chris Steers' strong leadership, we are making impressive progress relative to other localities," said Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla. "Still, Port Chester residents remain without power, and so we're acting with the same sense of urgency as we have been when the village was 75 percent without power. I remain concerned about those residents still without power, especially with the cold weather that's upon us."

As part of the ongoing power restoration efforts, Port Chester village Board of Trustees member Bart Didden said he spotted crews working on the installation of new utility poles that are needed for getting Port Chester residents their power in the streets still hit by outages.

Over the weekend, Pilla said he saw many positive signs in the community, despite the impact of the storm on Port Chester.

"It was so impressive to see how tight these neighborhoods are, with neighbor looking out for neighbor," Pilla said. "This reflects the strong community character we have here in Port Chester. It was also refreshing to hear that most people understand the wide-spread circumstance, and how grateful they are to our DPW, FD, PD and EMS crews and village management."
