Message From Mayor Roman

What a difference a week makes. I want to thank all of the City workers who helped keep everyone safe during this historic blizzard.

All of the HEOs, municipal workers, tree crew members, water and sewer workers who helped keep services and safety going throughout the storm and its aftereffects made it possible for our first responders of the LFD and LPD to get those in need. Our partners at the county through the leadership of Emergency Management Services Director, Jonathan Schultz, as well as with NYSEG and volunteer organizations, helped us keep our community safe.

Our Director of Highways, Parks, and Water Distribution, Clayton Dimmick, Parks & Buildings and Grounds Supervisor, Chris Landry, Streets Supervisor, Jerry Harris, Water & Sewer Distribution Supervisor, Bob Lawson, Chief Operator of Filtration, Dennis McNamara, Chief Operator of Wastewater, Mike McFall, Chief of Police, Steve Abbott, and Fire Chief, Luca Quagliano, all worked together as a team with their staff to work through the challenges and get us up and running in a short period of time. The City Clerk worked from home, including on Christmas to keep the public up to date with sending information to the press and website coordinator. On top of all of their other duties our police department provided a safe warming station for those in need of shelter during the storm. The number of workers who responded to this state of emergency in every department throughout the City is too many to list here, but I want you to know that you are appreciated. The number of hours you put in over the course of the last 9 days impacted our community in a positive way.

Thank you all.

Mayor Roman
