Hackensack NJ, Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco is calling on PSE&G to reimburse the cost of spoiled food, medication, and perishable commercial merchandise for all New Jersey residents and businesses who lost power for more than 48 consecutive hours due to Tropical Storm Isaias. County Executive Tedesco is also calling on the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to adopt legislation that requires utility companies to make this standard practice, putting the priorities of New Jersey residents and businesses first.

“At time when residents are already dealing with the hardship of the ongoing global health crisis, this is a common sense action to take that will help thousands of New Jersey residents. It is my hope that not only will residents and businesses receive this assistance following Isaias, but that reimbursement spoiled food, medication, and perishable commercial merchandise becomes a utility company requirement for future power interruptions” stated County Executive Jim Tedesco.

  1. How do we get this assistance

  2. Entitlement society for a natural disaster of falling trees? I don’t think it is PSEG’s responsibility.
    Then the rates will increase for possible future power losses.
    Try home owners insurance

  3. That would be the right thing to do. My cousin lost power for 3 days. They should reimburse them for all their loss. Thank you.

  4. How about these towns reimburse PSE&G for all the extra costs due to there trees falling on the wires taking down poles and causing fires. Towns should be trimming trees around the wires it’s called preventive maintenance.

  5. Everyone feels entitled to something these days. We can thank our politicians and union employees for contributing to this mindset!

  6. Are all the streets open in the Village of Ridgewood.
    We still have a few shut down in Glen rock

  7. Unions really. What about rental assistance, section 8, housing for them, having babies to get assistance and more than half the rent paid on assistance, why work. At least most of the employees work for what they get. Not the people having babies and they never have to pay back years later when they are to old to gave more babies. No just take in the grandchildren. Pse&g didn’t make the storm happen. How about making ice cubes ahead of time and put all the extra cubes in the refrigerator to help keep it cold. That’s what I do. Good idea from Good idea for homeowners insurance. And I will add renters insurance

  8. Most of the out-of-state utility trucks have left Bergen CC.

    The peak of hurricane season is September 10th….

  9. The village is a mess. Are the crews working overtime. Aka shade tree Division. If not they should hire outside tree companies to clean up the streets.

  10. Why don’t we have wires underground like most cities that pay way less tax than we do…. eliminates the need for tree branch trimming and less chance of power outage

  11. My beer got warm…what about me?
