The List: Brick Streets Approved for Power Restoration

Inspections took place through Tuesday

Brick officials have released a list of streets approved for power restoration following inspections completed Monday and Tuesday.

Township officials blasted JCP&L's protocols during a council meeting Tuesday, saying the utility changed policies in the midst of storm cleanup, leaving township residents in the dark by requiring inspections of neighborhoods.

"To me, the change of protocol is just a delay on their part," said Council President John Ducey. "Something is wrong with JCP&L, the whole situation stinks. Whether [your electric] is out or not, put in a complaint to BPU (Board of Public Utilities)."

Brick Patch will have a followup article on what led to the inspection requirement in the coming days.

The township announced Tuesday night that the following streets should receive power or have already received power:

  • Adair Drive
  • Alameda Drive
  • Arctic Ocean drive
  • Bahia Ct.
  • Bay Shore

I dont blame JCPL at all ! It is Brick !! Yes JCPL mandated that homes be inspected because of all the fires. We had to wait for inspectors to be sent from the state because Brick does not have inspectors !!!!! Yes we share with Toms River (clever plan by our mayor) So of course the Toms River inspectors are going to take care of Toms River homes 1st !!!! So sick of the mayor blaming everyone else but himself...I would have more respect for him if he just admitted he effed up! Own it !!

It would be nice to know what the plan is to get the rest of the streets up. What does the homeowner have to do? Please explain the process in place so we can help each other and ourselves.

I would like to say LIES! LIES! LIES! but will stay politically correct and say NOT TRUE! NOT TRUE! NOT TRUE! There is not a house lit on Alameda, every house on my block (which is on the list) that was underwater has not been inspected and still have the meters on them. Garbage/Debris pickup was stopped because the crew informed me they had to go to Princeton Avenue, excuse me! West Granada Drive (Partial) NOT! Whoever is providing this information be man or women enough to give us your name. I thought so. 1995, maybe acceptable, 2012?, we're doomed. Keep calling Shi..y Hall. When I first moved here people said, "Oh, you're moving to Bricktucky'? I guess my answer today would be 'Yup"! Hey, public officials, keep blowing smoke up my A..! At least it'll be warm. God bless all of you that are suffering along with me and my family.

Another smart move by our mayor, leaving us at the whim of Toms River. I hope everyone remembers all this come election day.

Mayor Acrapolis lives in Cherry Quay. His house was taken care of first. Mayor Acrapolis works for Toms River MUA. Toms River is being taken care of first. Brick tax payers come last in Acrapolis priorities. Except for his family and friends.

if its that bad, why would you stay in a house with no heat when its that cold. no one forced you to stay in your home when its that cold, you could have gone somewhere im sure.
Nana J. November 14, 2012 at 02:16 PM
To all the boneheads who say, "just leave,"you are totally clueless about how it works. You have to be home for endless inspections and restoration work. Lucky people have families to go to. There are no vacant hotel rooms anywhere near us. And as for Brickresident's comment, "What time can my four kids and I move in with you?"
Missing Brick November 14, 2012 at 02:19 PM
I came to my home to try and save the place from mold, roof leaks and further damage by standing water/diesel fuel. No one is forcing me? The person saying that is obviously sitting in a home with heat for the past 15 days.
Missing Brick November 14, 2012 at 02:21 PM
BTW, some of us have our life savings invested in our homes...how about some compassion ? In Katrina I heard about crews of people coming from states away to help...here we criticize our own for wanting to save what they were striving to build for years and decades. Nice!
life long local November 14, 2012 at 02:35 PM
WOW!!!!!!!! All I here is ME,ME,ME,ME. Most of you shouild be ashamed of yourselfs. People have died, lost everything they worked for, citizens even from other states are helping to get things stabilized here. They are risking their own lives, away from their families, could be away from cleaning up their own personal property to aid others and all you people do is complain that it is a little cold. As I type this post, I am wondering what have any of the complainers done to help thy neighbor. Reading these posts makes me embarrassed to be a citizen of Brick. One thing that John Ducey said does not make sense, if you have electricity, what would be your complaint to the BPU. I do hope you all have been spared any severe damages and you do get your power back on very soon.
mamacat November 14, 2012 at 02:48 PM
OK lifelong local. How long have you been out of power? People are getting frustrated after over two weeks dealing with all kinds of hardships. Don't criticize people when you don't know their situation. As for me I have my own things to deal with. We have been lied to over and over again.
Nana J. November 14, 2012 at 03:33 PM
lifetime local, please get a life and help thy neighbor thyself. BTW, most neighbors are helping each other as much as they can. So please take your lifelong local a** off your nice warm sofa, and stay out of our own heartbreak. We are not just a bunch of bennies complaining, we too are citizens of Brick.

Sounds like the rantings of someone sitting in a house with electricity.

Curious November 14, 2012 at 05:25 PM
I'm not one to complain but I know for a fact that water and electric don't mix. The possibility of an electric fire from a damaged electric box is an extreme possibility at shore acres. If there are any gas leaks undetected, explosions or gas fed fires like the ones that destroyed homes at Curtis point in mantoloking are an extreme possibility. Some of those homes in shore acres may not be habitable. Those that are may have to be gutted and redone before anything can be turned back on. Ive seen a few of those homes there and I would say that I would think very carefully about blaming anybody or any company about electricity being turned back on. If you are staying with friends or family, consider yourselves blessed. There are people on the barrier island and other areas that were affected that have NOTHING TO RETURN TO and NOTHING LEFT TO SALVAGE. So think WISELY and SAFELY, NOT SELFISHLY, before you tread into an unsafe situation. If your electric panel is damaged by water, GET IT REPLACED. You may save your own lives and those of your loved ones and neighbors.THINK, THINK, THINK!!! Remember you got flooded so think carefully.

That means no power on Neptune circle then.. tnx patch
Becki Hager November 14, 2012 at 06:30 PM
The List of Streets Approved for Power Restoration is just that - a list of streets. If JCPL logic is that every home on every street must be inspected prior to power restoration, then we continue to wait until every home on every street in the grid has been inspected. The only way JCPL can be selective is if they pull the meters on uninspected homes. Only then, using their self-imposed stipulation, will power to all of our neighborhoods in this grid will be restored. A team from Alabama Electric explained this to us on Sunday afternoon when they left the neighborhood, saying that all infrastructure has been repaired and that the only thing left to do is for JCPL to flip the switch to restore power to all who are connected via meters to the circuit. That was Sunday afternoon.....
Lori Morrison November 14, 2012 at 06:35 PM
SoDone, You are 100% correct. This was an issue discussed in the first few days following the storm, but Town Hall did not follow through because we have no inspectors. This is the downfall of shared services.
Rick November 14, 2012 at 06:48 PM
All of those ridiculing the "complainers" probably have full power. I have been on this so called approved list for over 24 hours, still no power, why? There have been sections of Brick flooded as bad as ours with power restored 3-5 days after the storm. Why does this section require agonizingly slow inspections. I would prefer to get accurate information, not guesses. Does anybody know who is calling the shots? JCP&L, Brick, the State? I want to call someone, not to complain, but to get accurate information.
Xavier November 14, 2012 at 07:02 PM
There are houses in the 700 block of Drum Point Rd that have power as of this morning. I don't know if that includes all of them though.
Fred November 14, 2012 at 07:14 PM
Right or wrong, I have to give the Mayor credit for standing up to JCP&L. But he is only one person. The Governor has his hands full also. What bothers me the most is the total absence of the State Legislators, both Senate and Assembly as well as the Federal Legislators, both House and Senate. The only time you see these clowns is before Election Day. Oh and let’s not forget the County slugs. Has any one of these people held a press conference, visited the area, or interviewed the people affected? The answer is no. Remember this when they are up for re-election.
Nana J. November 14, 2012 at 09:01 PM
I don't know if bits of hopeful-sounding info is good or not. Here we are facing another long cold night, while the town bulletin crows about phony lists of restored streets.
Watchman November 14, 2012 at 10:44 PM
It's 5:40 p.m.Wednesday,my street is on the list and it's still pitch black.Same old B.S.
GT November 15, 2012 at 10:41 AM
I'm so very sorry for your hardship Lisa and pray ya'll get power back soon. I can't blame anyone for this cause this storm just straight up kicked our butts. I think about the folks who lost it all, n those with no power every day n pray for a good out come cause that's all I can do. Wish I owned a magic wand so I could wave over everyone with power or a home an fix it all. But all I can do is hope for the best for everyone effected
