Storm Isaias Aftermath Update

I know that some residents are concerned about branches and limbs pick-up. We are asking for your continued patience because Storm Isaias adversely affected our entire City. Our Department of Public Works has been busy working around the clock along with PSE&G with limited man-power due to COVID-19.

Over 13,800 people lost power in Linden, more than Hurricane Sandy. Phase 1 of the clean-up was taking care of the trees that affected the power lines, so that power could be restore to our residents and businesses. Phase 2 was to remove additional trees that are no longer stable, to avoid any potential injuries to citizens, homes and vehicles. Phase 3 will be the continued clean-up of branches and limbs and will be continued to be picked up during grass clipping days.

We are still currently in Phase 2 and Phase 3. We are asking for patience and understanding. Our DPW men and women are working hard and just need time to get the job done.

Thank you,

Mayor Armstead
