NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – More than a million customers in parts of Queens and Long Island will be getting a new utility at the start of the new year.
As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not mince words about the Long Island Power Authority’s handling of superstorm Sandy and the snowstorm that followed. Some customers were left in the dark for weeks after Sandy.
“I believe the system is archaic and is obsolete,” the governor has said about LIPA. “The management has failed the consumers.”
