OLD WESTBURY - Residents upset with LIPA's handling of Hurricane Sandy power restoration got their chance to speak out tonight at a public meeting of the Moreland Commission in Old Westbury.
The meeting, held at SUNY Old Westbury, was filled with residents blasting the utility's response to the storm. Many residents were without power for weeks.
At the meeting, recommendations were made for the utility to work to improve communication, improve infrastructure and to bury power lines in non-flood zone areas.
