Local recovery efforts are continuing. With few exceptions, Township roads are cleared, and we are working with the County to clear their roads. Extensive power outages remain, and JCP&L does not yet have a firm estimate for restoration. Residents should be aware that the area remains hazardous due to downed lines, inoperative traffic signals, and potential additional tree falls.
Effective October 31st, Town Hall is closed until further notice except for limited emergency staffing. The community center is closed.
A County-wide curfew is in effect from the hours of 7:00 pm to 7:00 am.
If you have a life-threatening emergency please call 911.
For power outages JCP&L MUST hear from you directly, please call 1 888 544-4877 or go to their website at www.firstenergycorp.com
