JCP&L Feedback Wanted at Public Meeting Monday

Company's president to meet with Board of Public Utilities in Basking Ridge.

The president of Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) and members of the Board of Public Utilities will appear in Basking Ridge at a public meeting Monday to discuss the utility's response to Superstorm Sandy.

Local officials and residents were severely critical of the utility company during Sandy. Some of the company’s 3,000 Wayne customers were without power for 13 days following the storm.

Mayor Chris Vergano is hosting a meeting later this month to discuss with residents their negative experiences with the company.

The state Board of Public Utilities issued a notice that the meeting will be held to solicit public comment on JCP&L's preparedness and responsiveness before, during and after Hurricane Sandy. The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the auditorium in the William Annin Middle School, 70 Quincy Road, Basking Ridge.

A second hearing will be held on Dec. 18 at the Hopatcong Middle School, 1 David Road, from 4 to 7 p.m.

The notice said additional hearings would be scheduled in December and in 2013.
