Storm Update


A warming station is open tonight at Tompkins Hose Firehouse (9D and Main Street) for Beacon residents. Anyone in need of warmth is invited. The station is just to keep people warm, there are no special amenities like cots or meals. I have arranged free transportation with AJ Taxi Service at 214-0011 for anyone who needs a ride.  


The need for the shelter became apparent at 12:00pm today when Central Hudson could not guarantee the city’s power would be 100% restored…

To all - more storm related clean water issues. The following is a press release just published regarding infiltration to a sewer line going to the treatment plant. It is different from the Riverkeeper’s alert last week of sewage possibly emanating from the storm water line near the Riverfront Park.

Sewage, Stormwater and Pipes

This is a follow up to the Riverkeeper finding that the city may be discharging sewage, or recently discharged, into the river from a storm water outlet. We are still working on tracking down the potential cause and I will report back in a few days with more information and with the findings of the water tests. It is possible that the extremely heavy rains from the last two major storms may have caused damage to the lines going throughout the city.


In general, the more long…

We took care of the trash ourselves for clean-up #3, no need for Dept. of Sanitation trucks this time. Thanks.

Hi, Mayor Gold,

Venessa Miemis mentioned that there is a substantial percentage of Spanish speakers in the city and that it might be a good idea to have a Spanish version of the web site. I'd be happy to do it, if you didn't mind my taking quite a while to do it - between work, the house, and an almost-three-year-old there isn't much time left. Also, I can translate the content, but I can't write it into the site myself.
I'm a native Spanish speaker and a professional translator (into and from Spanish).

interesting concept: crowd-sourced surveillance/law enforcement. maybe something to keep in mind for down the road if grants would become available. cameras could be set up in the most problematic areas of beacon.

Hi Mayor Gold: Regarding the clean-up effort; We'll leave the garbage bags to the right at the entrance to Riverfront Park. (where accumulated snow is sometimes piled). Thanks for your help! Will update you on future locations, as we expect this to be a monthly event.

I read this article today and wanted to pass it on - Government Agencies Make Friends with New Media. I'm glad to see there's such a push towards information transparency and citizen participation in government... I hope that with the rollout of the new website we will have some of these interactive features as well. I would be happy to be a part of this effort.
