MADISON, NJ - Mayor of Madison, Bob Conley, released the following update on Friday, Nov. 2:

This is the November 2nd update from Mayor Bob Conley.

First a thank you for everyone's patience and understanding during this emergency. And now the update on the recovery effort in Madison.

At this time all roads have been cleared of trees except isolated areas.

Wednesday night at 7:20 our feed into Madison was restored. Since that time the priority was restoring the 15 circuits that serve our town. This will be completed today.

The crews will then start working on areas with downed poles, damaged transformers and then individual homes with dropped lines. This effort is led by the crews of Madison Electric who are working 16-hour days assisted by 2 crews from Louisiana with Verizon installing utility poles. No crews will be released until all have power.

Some neighborhoods sustained major damage and may be without power for 3 to 5 days. These neighborhoods include but may not be limited to:

Woodcliffe
Harwood
Edgewood and Dogwood
Pomeroy, Cross Gates East and West Lanes
Hillcrest, Highview
Park Lane
Pine, Rose, Beech and Cedar
Barnsdale
Garfield/OldeGreenhouse La
Niles
Shunpike
Rosemont/Ardsleigh

We will send out updates

As announced earlier Madison will celebrate Halloween on Saturday from 2 to 6 PM. This will allow for everyone to celebrate Halloween without the worry of dark neighborhoods that we will be faced with when daylight savings ends Saturday

The library opened at 10 AM and the Y opened at 12 noon. The Y is available for anyone needing showers.

Our call center will be closing today at 6 PM. Ongoing Information will be posted at rosenet.org, with printed copies at Public Safety, Hartley Dodge, the Library and the YMCA.

Our DPW  and electric department crews along with our Fire and Police have been putting in long hours to get our town back on track. Plus staff and volunteers have handled over a thousand calls in the call center and hosted hundreds in our our warming and charging stations as well as providing shelter for those in need.  Please thank them if you see them around town.

Remember whether you were among the first to get power or the last, we are all in this together. If you have lights please reach out to your friends and neighbors who may still be in the dark.
