Dear Rye Brook Residents:
Here is the status of where we stand regarding the ongoing power outages and storm-related issues:
- There are currently 213 outages in Rye Brook.
- Con Edison maintains their position that 90% of the outages will be restored by 11:00 PM tomorrow (Tuesday) night. The remaining 10% represents the single-family homes whose individual lines are down connecting their homes to the street power lines. Those restorations may continue into Thursday.
- Road closures –Anderson Hill Road (south of Doral Arrowwood) and Upper Lincoln near King St.
Branches and Tree Limbs:
- The Village public works staff will pick up storm-related limbs and branches up to four (4) inches in diameter and up to six (6) feet in length. All such limbs and branches should be placed in an organized manner at the curb by the end of day next Monday, March 12th. Please do not place any debris in the roadway.
- Trees, logs and stumps must be removed by the property owner and should not be placed at the curb as they will not be picked up by the Village staff.
- Street trees and limbs in the public right-of-way that have been damaged by the storm will be removed or trimmed by the Village public works staff or village contractor.
- No tree removal permits are required for the removal of trees that have uprooted (i.e. fallen, leaning) during the storm as long as the homeowner (1) retains documentation (i.e. photos and/or detailed bill from a landscaper) and (2) calls their address into the public works department at (914) 939-0753 on or before Monday, March 12th.
- Warming/Charging Center open today (Monday) at the AJP Community Center, 32 Garibaldi Place, until 7:00 PM (later if necessary).
I know I sound like a broken record, but we are working as we can to get power restored, and I feel horrible that some of you have been displaced since Friday night. We are pushing Con Ed in conjunction with the county to get this work done prior to the upcoming snowstorm.

Mayor, Village of Rye Brook
