If storms like Sandy are going to be the "new norm" as Governor Andrew Cuomo and others have said, then we better get ready.
An informational meeting will be held Jan. 22 to discuss the village’s hazard-mitigation plan, which seeks to identify potential dangers like flood zones and natural disasters.
The 7 p.m. meeting, the first of three, is the only one not classified as a public hearing. At the second and third meetings, both public hearings, residents can offer comments and suggestions.
Cashin Associates, an engineering consultancy, is working with the village on the mitigation effort, which received a grant to complete the plan.
