Councilman David Greenfield opened his district office in order to help residents deal with the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. He urges anyone who needs help to call 311 and submit a complaint, write down the reference number and then call his office at  (718) 853-2704, so that he and his staff can follow the progress of any services needed.

Issues homeowners and residents may face include downed power lines, fallen trees, power outages, flooding or others.

“My number one priority as an elected official is to be there for people when they need me most. I am very proud that whatever gets thrown at us, whether it was the blizzard of 2010, Hurricane Irene last year, or this super-storm, my office is always open to help residents. This is especially important and critical today in the aftermath of the dangerous and destructive storm we witnessed last night. That’s why I made sure that my office was open and available to help constituents, both as the storm approached the city yesterday and since first thing this morning. Please call me if there is any way I can be of assistance as we work together to clean up from this terrible event,” said Greenfield in a press release.

Councilman Greenfield’s office is open from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Otherwise, residents can submit information via Twitter at @NYCGreenfield or to a specially created e-mail address:
