LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WIVB)– Due to expected high winds starting at 10 p.m. tonight, Lackawanna Mayor Geoff Szymanski is postponing Friday’s garbage collection until Saturday.
Szymanski tells residents to contact National Grid at 1-800-867-5222 if anyone sees downed power lines and if the power goes out, generators should not be used inside or near neighbor’s homes.
Treat street lights going down as a four-way stop sign.
“Unlike my other messages, this message was sent out via the Emergency version of our Code-Red robo-calls. If there are more messages that need to go out as an emergency throughout tonight until this wind-event is over, I will again use the Emergency version,” Mayor Szymanski said.
