Comet's Vice President Mike Fordunski alerted us about an electrical problem in the vicinity of the Maspeth Plateau. He followed up and said work is now being done on 66th Street in the vicinity of 53rd Drive. I placed a call to Council Member Crowley's office and below is an update from staff member Kate Mooney. Thanks Kate!
We we want to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a happy, healthy NEW YEAR!!
Roe Daraio, President
Comet Civic Association
Con Ed gave us a report:
There was a smoking manhole near this location.
As a result, Con Ed inspected and saw that cables were damaged and had to replace the cables.
The condition affected about 300 customers
After correction of condition the do testing for carbon monoxide levels
They test for 3 days and will back fill the open and then resurface
Con Ed Requested National Grid to also test for gas. Please let residents know that If there are concerns in their home, contact us and Con Ed supervisors will pay them a visit.
They expect to be out of there by Thursday with crews working overnight
Hope that is all you need.
