My area still looks like a war zone, I have many elderly neighbors, including at least one on a medical device that needs recharging, went to Town Hall to speak to someone to try to get the trees and lines removed, guess what? It is closed due to election day! Is it just me or is there something wrong with Town Hall being closed during the worst catarophe LI has ever faced?
