Rate Hopatcong's Response to Sandy
How do you think the borough is doing?
It's been about two weeks since Hurricane Sandy came ashore to wreak havoc on Hopatcong and the tri-state area as a whole. Now, the town continues to dig out of the debris to clear trees from homes and roads, and restore power to residents.
But how do you think the borough has done so far?
Hopatcong Mayor Sylvia Petillo has said that communication among JCP&L crews and borough officials was a major issue. She said officials were given inaccurate numbers from the power company, and that officials had a hard time communicating with residents because of the loss of power.
Many residents have expressed frustration on the Hopatcong-Sparta Facebook page about this issue as well.
