Town of Whitestown Declares Local State of Emergency

 

July 3, 2017 (Whitestown, N.Y.) – The Town of Whitestown Town Board has declared a state of emergency in the Town of Whitestown due to the severe flooding event on Saturday, July 1, which resulted in widespread damage and dangerous conditions in the town, particularly in the Village of Whitesboro and Village of Yorkville near the Sauquoit Creek.

 

Although there is no longer any imminent danger due to additional rainfall, a state of emergency is being declared to potentially allow the town to secure state and federal funds to assist in clean-up and recovery efforts. The declaration also allows the town to directly aid all four villages in the town - - Whitesboro, Yorkville, New York Mills and Oriskany - - through the sharing of equipment and manpower.

 

As in the past and during any time of need, the Town of Whitestown will do whatever it can to help all four of its villages deal with the aftermath of Saturday’s flooding. The Town Highway Department will be in the Village of Whitesboro this week assisting village crews with trash removal, street sweeping and the clearing of sewer drains and catch basins.

 

While travel is not restricted in the town, motorists are encouraged to use extreme caution when driving through the areas most impacted by the severe flooding, as some residents are still pumping out their homes and emergency personnel is still present. Residents should also continue to avoid areas of standing water, as they could contain contaminants.

 

Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr. also declared a state of emergency in Oneida County.

Supplies
July 02, 2017
Announcement for those residents affected by the flooding, there will be food and cleaning supplies in the Dimbleby funeral home parking lot shortly provided by the Red Cross and Salvation Army.
