Residents turned out en masse to voice their frustrations over stormwater damages suffered in recent storms; they wanted answers from officials in attendance tonight as to what plans are in the offing to help alleviate their persistent stormwater problems.
Town Supervisor Patrick Tyksinski presided over the meeting. Also on hand were Don Backman, Ward 1 Councilman whose constituents suffered considerable damage; Elisbetta DeGironimo, Town Stormwater Coordinator; Brian Sanders, newly appointed town stormwater consultant; Richard Sherman, Highway Superintendent; Matt Bohn, Town Deputy Superintendent; and Town Attorney Herb Cully.
Noticeably absent was Ward 2 Councilwoman Christine Krupa whose constituents in the South Hills area sustained considerable stormwater damage.
County Legislators Brian Miller, Jim D'Onofrio and Fred Sadallah were also there to share some information regarding the County's part in the clean-up and also talk about their conversations with FEMA representatives who recently toured the damaged areas of town.
Concerned Citizens videotaped the meeting; it is quite lengthy, but well worth the watch particularly if you were affected by the recent storms but were unable to attend tonight's meeting.
