The Tinton Falls Council has passed a resolution that lists ten ways for Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) to improve its service to customers and towns.
The resolution stems from comments and suggestions made by various Monmouth mayors and officials at a regional summit held in Tinton Falls last month to discuss how JCP&L handled Hurricane Sandy.
Officials at the meeting criticized JCP&L's lack of communication and information with their towns and agreed that the utility company should make some changes.
Some of the suggested changes include smaller, regional calls between mayors and JCP&L, proactive tree trimming, better intra-utility communication and a detail of JCP&L's capital plan. For a full list of suggested changes, click here.
Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera said his next step will be to go before the Board of Public Utilities to have the resolution read into the board's offical minutes.
Several other Monmouth County municipalities are expected to pass the resolution this month.
