City of Poughkeepsie Bolsters Staff in Anticipation of Storm Response

The City of Poughkeepsie has been readying its response as Tropical Storm Isaias made landfall in anticipation of heavy rains and wind gusts in our area.

The city will have additional resources available to provide assistance today and tonight. Additional personnel have been assigned to the 911 Center in anticipation of a higher volume of calls.

The City’s Department of Public Works also will make additional personnel available, specifically tree crews and heavy-equipment operators. The DPW office will be staffed until at least 11 p.m. today to take storm-related calls at 845-451-4111. Non-emergency calls to the 911 center should go to 845-451-4000.

“I want to thank our city workers in advance for doing what is necessary during this storm,” said Mayor Rob Rolison. “I also encourage all residents to use caution and to stay inside and not travel if at all possible as this storm moves through our area.”
