CANISTEO, NY – Canisteo Village Mayor Monica Rectenwald and Steuben County Sherriff Jim Allard had much praise for how various departments in the village handled the recent snow storm. Facing a state of emergency because of the heavy snow accumulation and loss of power, the Mayor said she could not have been prouder of the way the community pulled together to get the situation under control.
Special recognition was given to Incident Commander and Police Chief Kyle Amidon for coordinating all relief efforts, the fire department who worked round the clock taking care of downed trees and power lines, and the DPW who kept the streets clean throughout the ordeal. Also receiving praise were the many business for donating all the food, water and supplies to the relief shelter.
