Tarrytown Trustees Approve Electrical Upgrades

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – According to Village Administrator Michael Blau, the trouble with Tarrytown's current electrical system is that when the power goes off, the generator doesn't kick in immediately.

“There's a lapse of 15 seconds before the generator kicks in,” he said. “What happens during that time is we don't have electricity, and the communications system has gone down as a result of the loss of electricity."

The communications system is vital to the police department, Blau said. That's why the Tarrytown Board of Trustees voted unanimously Monday night to hire consultant engineers to study the current system and develop plans and specifications for the purchase and installation of an uninterrupted power source.

Trustees approved the hiring of Edwards & Zuck, P.C. Consulting Engineers. Blau said the total cost of Edwards & Zuck's proposal was $7,500.

Blau noted, before trustees approved the measure, that the board had previously set aside $50,000 for the new power system as part of the Fiscal 2010-11 capital budget.

The new system will “make sure that there is power going to the police department,” Blau said. “That way we will not lose computers, communications and such.”
