Town of Esopus Offering Residents Storm Debris Pickup and Clean Up
As we get ready to head into another weekend, some parts of the Hudson Valley are still dealing with the aftermath of Winter Storm Landon. The ice that set in with the storm last Friday (February 4, 2022) caused significant damage to property and trees. Plus the cold temperatures over the weekend resulted in the ice hanging on longer than expected.
Many of our area towns are still in the midst of cleaning up after Landon. After Central Hudson and other utilities were able to restore power to their customers who lost service, it then became time to focus on clean up. Some hard areas are getting help from their local highway departments.
The Town of Esopus released information today that they will be helping property owners dispose of debris from the storm. Starting Thursday, February 10, 2022, the Town of Esopus will be doing Winter Strom Landon Brush Clean Up over the next two weeks. If you don't live in Esopus, chances are your area is doing something similar, check in with your town hall.
