Poll: Are You Satisfied With the Storm Response?

Considering all the factors involved in getting town back up and running, what's your opinion?

It was a historic storm, causing numerous road closures, power outages, and uncountable downed trees and large limbs throughout the area. It also played havoc with Halloween festivities and trick-or-treating.

Measureable snowfall doesn't normally arrive in October, but when it does the combination of fall foliage and heavy, wet snow is a recipe for what residents experienced beginning this past Saturday.

So, as the cleanup and repair process continues, how satisfied have you been with the response? Did officials, authorities, public workers, and the electric companies do everything in their power to mitigate what proved to be a destructive storm? Are they continuing to do so?

Let us know what you think in our poll. Then, let us know why you voted the way you did in the comments.

Exactly Rich, beg me to provide evidence to support your bizarre accusations. But yes I did have an argument with Jack. I'm over it. Sorry Jack.

I live in Chatham Township and am signed up for Nixle alert for both Chatham and Madison. Chatham Township should be embarrassed at what a poor job they did keeping us informed as to what is going on. Thanks goodness I signed up for Madison alerts. On Sunday, after the storm, I was receiving regular updates from Madison. But nothing from Chatham, until finally an email that Halloween was moved to Nov 4. Good to know, but what about the power!!! Maybe Mayor Hagner was working on the situation, but who would know because nothing was communicated. Being without power for days is bad, but having no information about what is going on is inexcusable. I hope the Mayor and the Township committee learn something from this situation..

As of December 3rd there are STILL branches on Robert Drive - did this become a County Road somehow ? Seriously, how many people actually work for the phantom "Road Dept" ?
