JCP&L Should Improve Services and Communications to Municipalities
Other Counties in NJ Encouraged to Host Similar Summits
TINTON FALLS, NJ – On Monday, November 19th at 12:00 p.m. Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera and Middletown Mayor Tony Fiore will co-host the Third Annual Snow Summit to be held at the Tinton Falls Borough Hall. All municipalities in Monmouth County are invited to attend and encouraged to take part in this meeting.
In the past, these Snow Summits have provided towns in Monmouth County with a forum for improved shared services, access to better technology, and ways to improve winter cleanup efforts. Mayor Skudera called the first snow summit after the blizzard of 2010 to both seek and share ways in which to improve municipal services to the residents.
"Despite any changes JCP&L may have implemented from Hurricane Irene, they once again failed each municipality and each customer they serve." said Middletown Mayor Tony Fiore. "This forum will allow each Mayor in our area to share their experiences and come up with a comprehensive list of changes that we believe should be implemented to avoid another failed restoration response".
"JCP&L needs to greatly improve, let's unite as Mayors and tell them how" said Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera. "This was a huge storm but JCP&L needs to communicate better with the municipalities and the customers that they serve and take proactive measures to improve their overall level of service."
