Yonkers taxpayers to foot storm cleanup bill
All power has been restored to homes in Westchester County following Tuesday's severe storm, but residents in Yonkers continue to struggle with the cleanup.
After spending two nights in a hotel, Mariam Friend returned home and began repairing her damaged basement and garage. Friend is among a dozen homeowners whose houses were badly battered by the storm.
City officials say it will take up to two weeks and cost taxpayers $2.1 million to complete the storm cleanup. By declaring a state of emergency, Yonkers is hoping to receive state and federal aid to help foot the cleanup bill.
