Letter to the Editor: Malverne's Toughest - DPW

Malvernite applauds the performance of the village's Department of Public Works throughout Hurricane Sandy.

Malverne is fortunate to have a hard working and dedicated DPW.  

Its workers endured extreme and hazardous conditions to quickly and safely restore blocked roads throughout Malverne. Paul Jessup and the DPW crews led by Kevin Brady and Mark Elowson shined at these times of distress.

On Halloween, the great crew that assisted with the removal of a huge tree blocking the corners of Rolling Street and Alden Court included Kevin Brady, Dave Terrizzi, Gerry Cardella, Mike Farioli, Vinny Carrechia, Rick Hanke, Steve Johnson, Franklin, and Tony.

The Malverne DPW did a fantastic job, clearing a path for LIPA and its crews to get working on restoring power. On the day of the storm, a big tree fell on Cedar Road, taking out a car before resting on the roof of my neighbor's house. DPW was there within an hour (in the rain and wind) to cut the tree back from the house and remove the limbs from the car, allowing my neighbors to patch up their windshield and roof before the storm got really bad. They came back a few days later to finish the job. And in case you are wondering, I do not work for the Village nor do I have any relatives that do so. I have never complained about my Village taxes, and never will.

Terrific effort and results by the Village of Malverne. If you don't think that you get your money's worth from your Malverne Village taxes just take a quick drive to any of our neighboring towns - Malverne shines BIG TIME. A HUGE Thank You to the Village leaders, employees, and volunteers.

I sad it when i was mayor and i haven't changed my mind: Paul Jessup is the best thing that ever happened to Malverne DPW. And his men do him and our village proud. We're lucky to have them. (sorry, Paul. Didn't mean to embarrass you.)
