Last night, Upper Nyack bore the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Due to the the severity of the storm and the need for immediate clean up, the prohibition on the use of gas-powered leaf blowers is suspended until Sunday, September 5, as per the provisions of the Sound Law Section 4.C.iv.d (below).
d) Clean up occurring within 72 hours after a storm event if the Mayor, in the exercise of his or her reasonable discretion, suspends the provisions hereof which term may be extended by the Mayor for up to 72 additional hours depending on the severity of the storm and extent of damage within the Village. Such suspension may be subject to reasonable conditions and limitations provided by the Mayor.
Our concern now is with the wind bringing down trees and power lines. Safe safe and stay away from downed wires.
– Mayor Karen Tarapata
