LIPA executive tells customers without power to go on the Internet to download repair forms. His suggestion was not well received.
A Long Island Power Authority official told a crowd of 300 Rockaway residents that they would need to hire a licensed city electrician to inspect their homes before LIPA could restore power, and suggested the homeowners print out inspection forms — from the Internet.
But the idiocy was just starting – how’s this for corporate (and Nanny, “Big Gulp” Bloomberg) rule making?
[H] omeowner Jim Silvestri, asked whether he could use a Nassau County-certified electrician and was told no.
“There’s not enough licensed electricians in the City of New York to take care of this,” Silvestri whined. Just another ungrateful homeowner refusing to see the imperative for keeping everyone safe.
