Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., Chairman of the Board of Public Works David Eicks and the City of Anderson’s Municipal Light & Power director Anthony Pochard sent seven line workers to Tallahassee Florida to assist in restoring power after Hurricane Michael.
Since their departure, the crew has been helping the people of Tallahassee Florida that are currently living without power. We have received messages from the people affected by Hurricane Michael thanking dedicated workers. One person affected wrote, “Sending many thanks to your utility linemen who just restored power in our neighborhood. This was our 4th day without electricity. We truly appreciate your help as we try to recover from Hurricane Michael.”
A woman named Deb Boutwell posted on the City of Anderson Facebook saying, “Sending a huge shout out and thank you to the awesome response, assistance, sacrifices, amazing solidarity and human kindness of the City of Anderson lineman and electrical crew that just restored our Neighborhood's electricity here in Tallahassee, Florida!! In Hurricane Michael's aftermath, three days without power and this crew all the way from Indiana- WOW! Just WOW! We are humbled and thankful, as we are so very fortunate and grateful compared to our nearby beloved coastal neighbors, families and friends that have suffered such devastation. However, the restoration of our electricity here in Tally allows us to return to a somewhat normal life so we can help others. Blessings and prayers for your safety & strength! Big hugs & love to all responsible from Tallahassee!! City of Andersen Indiana Utilities and lineman, you rock!!”
“The city is proud to cooperate in providing this valuable technical assistance that will help another community in their time of need. I am proud of the hard work and kindness shown by the crew and reinforces my belief in the City of Anderson,” Mayor Broderick stated.
Hurricane Michael was determined a category 4 hurricane. Anderson personnel have assisted in restoring 90% of power to the approximately 10,000 customers affected during the storm.
