Councilwoman McCarthy and Peterson drafting a resolution to investigation public utilities

Councilwomen Janice McCarthy and Emily Peterson

PARSIPPANY — Parsippany-Troy Hills Councilwoman Janice McCarthy and Emily Peterson spent the last week working with the Mayor Michael Soriano administration to get streets plowed and power restored to our residents as quickly as possible.

As we move towards the next township council meeting, we are drafting a resolution supporting the Phil Murphy administration’s investigation into NJ public utility companies and requesting that Parsippany be able to participate fully in those investigations and the public hearings that will be held.

The fact that so many of our residents were (and in some cases remain) without power for several days is unacceptable and we look forward to working with other communities to make sure we have a more robust and effective storm response.
