East Windsor Granted Post Sandy Mitigation Funds for Permanent Generators

Permanent generators will be placed at the East Windsor Senior Center and the East Windsor Public Works facility.

East Windsor will be awarded two grants in Post Sandy Mitigation Funds for permanent generators. The grants, totaling $199,000, will be provided by Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes, according to a press release issued by the township. 

A $96,000 grant will be for a permanent generator for the East Windsor Public Works facility and a $103,000 grant will be for a permanent generator for the East Windsor Senior Center, the release stated. 

Mercer County has been issued a total of $1,034,738 from the State of New Jersey Office of Mitigation to be distributed for projects that meet specific state criteria. Mayor Janice Mironov and members of the East Windsor Township council wrote letters of intent to guarantee the resources for these two projects, according to the release. 

“East Windsor Township applied for funding for these two tremendously valuable projects from the New Jersey Office of Mitigation grant program, which was created in response to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy,” Mayor Mironov said. “These grant awards will enable East Windsor to invest in permanent generators for two of our critical public buildings so the Township can effectively continue government operations and provide important services to our residents during power outages created by severe weather events or other emergency situations.” 

Additionally, the  generators will ensure that the township is able to have two buildings with power during an emergency situation making them optimal for shelter, charging electronic devices, and the refrigeration of food and medical products, the Mayor said.

I guess the East Windsor Mayor must have paid off Christie for this gift from his majesty - thanks Mayor.

Excellent news for the Township. The Senior Center, in particular, could be a safe haven for many should another long-term power outage come along.
