ORIGINAL STORY (January 28)

Homer Police Chief Bob Pitman says crews from National Grid will be taking down an old power line in the Village of Homer sometime tomorrow (January 29), right across the street from our studios in front of the new building going up on Main Street.

A planned outage will take place, which Pitman says will only affect the Village Food Market and the apartments above it.  The owner of the Village Food Market (Kevin Williams) has notified National Grid that he plans to get a generator for the grocery store.

The outage should last no longer than 8 hours, barring any unforeseen circumstances or weather related emergencies. Wednesday has been as a weather day.

The sidewalk will be blocked off and National Grid will have a flagger for traffic. Per National Grid, all outage customers have been notified.

Expect traffic delays and possible detours while crews are working.

Stay tuned for more information.
