Based on recent break ins around town does anyone else think it's a bad idea to post exact streets without power? I know I wouldn't want this info to be public if I had a house without power. Come on Millburn township...think before you react. Action. Not reaction.

Hey cut the cops a break PRPC they have been working non-stop and people need to know what is going on. Stop being an ass.
Jon September 04, 2011 at 02:30 PM
people like you always have a negative comment..

I agree, Millburn did an excellent job keeping all of us informed. We need to know this information. Plus, I talked to the police, they have extra officers working and patroling those areas. Get real, the problem is with JCPL, not Millburn.

Went to the dump to see if they were open as we have a lot of junk from basement. Talked with very nice guy (John W.) who let us know that the town would come pick everything up curbside. He went and put our street on the plan for later today. Really great response from town workers.

Jon - no knock on the cops - I know they do a GREAT job...and have done a great job during Irene. But as hard as the cops try there's always going to be bad people out there - people who will look to take advantage of others when they are down... All I'm saying is that the town needs to get smarter...posting addresses of homes without power is not as smart as you may think it is. As far as me being an ass....thank you...if someone isn't this town will continue down the same path towards our next failed crisis. Be well Jon. Action. Not reaction.

Sorry Saul. Have to 100% disagree with you on this post - and I know hundreds other will as well. Mark my words...Millburn/Short Hills town residents will revolt against the township officials in the coming weeks. It's not going to be pretty. Predict a new look to town political landscape in the next 18 months. Again - town police should be commended for their efforts during Irene. As for town officials - they left us all in the dark...just like JCPL. Action. Not reaction.
Joel September 04, 2011 at 05:48 PM
PRPC....your continual criticism, negativity, and threats like "mark my words ...town residents will revolt" are not helpful. Why don't YOU take some positive action like help clean up downtown, Taylor Park and/or encourage people to patronize our local merchants to help them get back on their feet?
Fairfield Road September 04, 2011 at 06:01 PM
The cops didn't post the address of anyone. They gave a public service information that is needed by those of us still in the dark. Good job MPD and I agree the coward hiding behind the name PRPC should be ignored.
Fairfield Road September 04, 2011 at 06:03 PM
The Police know what they are doing and should be supported. They have a new Cheif and from what I have been told, he is an outstanding law enforcement leader...

Last time I checked, millburn/short hills was still part of the united states...where we still had freedom of speech? Right? Are you honestly happy with the job our elected town officials have done in the past week? Yes, police and fire have done a great job and, again, should be commended.
millresident September 04, 2011 at 06:29 PM
i guess you didn't read the posts from residents asking for streets without power. People are always complaining.
Steve September 04, 2011 at 09:18 PM
PRPC, I think you raise a valid question about publicizing street names without power and your tone/comment "come on Millburn township" came across, at least to me, as antagonistic. It's great to have an opinion and share it but you might have done it in a more positive, less alienating manner. We all need to work together during times like this.
millresident September 04, 2011 at 11:09 PM
police,fire, and DPW do not take orders from the mayor or the township committee. When election day comes and your cast your vote just remember what Deputy Mayor Tillitson did for us last week...nothing

Okay, I am very confused, has the boil water alert been lifted in the entire township? The last update I see on the Millburn website (dated 9/2) suggests that it hasn't?
Laura Griffin September 05, 2011 at 01:27 AM
Yesterday's story (9/3)should still be on the page. http://patch.com/A-lGQb Yes, it has been lifted. NJ American Water says it's safe to drink now.
John Fonseca September 05, 2011 at 03:29 AM
I think that PRPC should run for office based upon his/her strong opinions on how this town should be run better. Complaining and accusing is one thing. Doing something about it is another. Maybe in preparation to your campaign you should also start posting under your real name.
P_R_PC September 05, 2011 at 02:43 PM
Never said I was running. Just expected more from those we elected. Finally, how would revealing my name impact my opinion that town officials let us down during Irene?
