Public Hearing On Sandy Response Efforts To Be Held On December 6

Dec 4, 2012 11:16 AM

The Suffolk County Legislature Public Safety and Economic Development and Energy committees will hold a joint public hearing to assess the response to Hurricane Sandy. The hearing will be held on Thursday, December 6, at 6 p.m. at the Rose Y. Caracappa Auditorium, in the William H. Rogers Building at 725 Veterans Memorial Highway in Smithtown.

As a result of Hurricane Sandy, thousands of residents throughout Suffolk County were left with property damage, power loss, and a number of other issues related to the storm. The hearing aims to give the public an opportunity to express their concerns regarding the overall response to Sandy, relief efforts and a chance to express any grievances related to Sandy, and offer recommendations for future storm preparation.

After the public hearing, a follow-up meeting will be scheduled to allow an opportunity for all departments, agencies, and companies involved in post Sandy relief to respond to the public concerns and comment on their recovery efforts.

For more information on the hearing, contact the Suffolk County Legislature at 853-4070 or 2nd District Representative Jay Schneiderman at 852-8400.
