Marlboro Township is in the dark, and it may stay that way for more than one week.
Mayor Jon Hornik said JCP&L will evaluate Marlboro, a process which will be completed on Thursday. After Thursday the power company told Hornik it will be 7 to 10 days of darkness.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Marlboro K-8 schools are remaining closed through Thursday.
Hornik told Patch early Tuesday morning that Marlboro residents need to remain patient.
"This is the worst storm in the history of our township," Hornik said. "Obviously, the scope of the damage is extreme."
But the mayor said he is making sure JCP&L has a game plan in Marlboro. Hornik was also vocal during Hurricane Irene, criticizing the electric company's slow response in the township.
"I want a game plan," he said. "They will be here as soon as it is safe."
Temporary electronic charging stations will be set up in three locations throughout the township.
- Robertsville Fire Station on Rt. 520
- Morganville Independent Fire Station Rt. 79
- Police Department at Municipal Complex
