Latest News In Highland New York

 

For Immediate Release

From the Town of Highland Town Board

May 18, 2018

As we endure our second extended State of Emergency in 2018 we would like to thank everyone for their patience.

Today, Friday, as of 9:00 a.m. all Town residents are without NYSEG power services. Some also are without Frontier phone service. NYSEG restoration reports should be disregarded, as their estimates of restored service are totally false. Boots on the ground crews are working diligently, but progress is slow. The devastation that occurred throughout the Town is tremendous. 

Please, everyone, give crews their space and your gratitude as they are working. If you must drive around town, please drive slowly through work zones and be mindful of debris and downed wires. We have multiple Sullivan County Sheriff’s Deputies throughout Town working with our Constables to partially close or close sections of the roadway so that line crews can work.

The Town continues to work throughout the emergency with our shelter open at the Town Hall. We have provided facilities, charging stations, and meals for over 100 residents daily since the storm’s decimation on May 15th. Dry ice and bottled water are available at Town Hall. We have had an amazing crew of volunteers in the kitchen and shelter helping to provide meals and keep services operational.

The efforts put forth in our Town have been incredible. Our Town of Highland Highway Department, emergency services, volunteer first responders, and volunteer residents had our roads open before nightfall on the day of the storm. We have received overwhelming support from the Sullivan County law enforcement community, especially the Sheriff’s Department and New York State Police. The Sullivan County Office for the Aging has also been of tremendous assistance. Clearing and cleaning efforts continue.
