The information - which was posted Tuesday, November 6, and shared with Lindenhurst Patch by Deputy Mayor Kevin McCaffrey - related to the mandatory electrical inspections announced on the same day along with other crucial updates by the Town of Babylon.
(Other Babylon Town post-Sandy updates could be found on the Town's website here.)
The information provided by the Village also included details for gas customers, as well as details about the text messaging update service the Village began this week to keep residents updated in the aftermath of Sandy.
The information read on the website here as follows:
"Before power can be restored, National Grid, the natural gas provider, must certify every gas connection South of Montauk is shut off and necessary repairs are completed. This should be completed very soon. Some areas South of Montauk may begin having natural gas restored shortly.
"Before LIPA turns power back on to the grid, it must be sure there's no flood damage to your electrical system.
"The Village, in cooperation with the Town of Babylon, is arranging to make the necessary inspections at no cost to residents.
"If your home is certified to have the power turned on, then a certification for you to display will be given to you.
"The list of blocks and dates the inspectors are scheduled to be in can be obtained by calling Village Hall at 631-957-7500.
"The list of locations and dates will also be sent out through the Village’s text alert system - text 'VOL' to 411247 - and on our website, www.villageoflindenhurst.com."
