See the attached advisory about the Calamus Avenue sewer reconstruction project that was sent to us by Council Member Crowley's office.
Earlier this week a resident smelled a slight odor of gas in the vicinity of 72nd Place/72nd Street. A worker told her this was "normal" when you open up the street. If anyone smells gas, call 911 immediately!
I was informed National Grid was on Calamus Avenue this morning asking homeowners to let them in to check their gas lines. One resident refused to let them in and they threatened to turn off her gas. She called 911, the 104th Precinct responded and did a walk though with National Grid.
There are a lot of con artists who say they are representatives of a utility company in order to gain access into a house. This resident felt uncomfortable about the situation, did the right thing and called 911.
Always be alert!!
