Electrical Inspections to Start This Morning in Point Beach
All residents and business people without power urged to shut off breakers
Inspectors will be walking door to door in many areas of Point Beach to inspect electrical services and building integrity starting at 8 a.m. today, according to the police department.
When Patch was made aware of this news on Thursday night, there was no one available to explain who the inspectors are, which parts of town they will visit first today (Fri., Nov. 9) or any other details.
The Point Pleasant Beach Building Department will be open from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday and Sunday.
"The Building Department is requesting that all building owners and tenants inspect their properties immediately, if they have not done so already," says a prepared statement from the police department.
"All owners and tenants of residential and business structures in Point Pleasant Beach that do not have power are requested to turn off their main breaker.
The Building Department in concert with the Office of Emergency Management is working with JCP&L to coordinate the restoration of power to your service.
Within the last 24 hours it is apparent that JCP&L is stepping up their efforts in all of Point Pleasant Beach, including those residing east of the railroad tracks.
For more information, please also refer to the JCP&L website at www.firstenergycorp.com. Your continued patience while the mechanics of this process are addressed is appreciated."
