WOODBURY - Town of Brookhaven residents are hoping the cleanup for the impending nor'easter is better than that of last month's blizzard.

The town was widely criticized for taking days to get streets plowed, and poor storm response led to acting Brookhaven Highway Superintendent Michael Murphy's resignation.

Dan Losquadro won Tuesday's special election for Brookhaven highway superintendent. Since Losquadro has not yet been sworn in, John Capella, the man who took charge of the highway department in Murphy's absence, will be in charge of storm response.

A spokesman for Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine says the town board has approved a resolution that will allow the town to pay outside contractors more money to plow Brookhaven's streets, which should aid in storm cleanup.
