The following is a statement issued by County Legislator and candidate for county executive Rob Astorino.
“The continued failure of Indian Point emergency sirens is unacceptable. Entergy must act immediately to correct the problem; there can be no more delays. Federal regulators should also act quickly to put pressure on Entergy as they are presently conducting a review of the Indian Point facility.
“My position has always been that Indian Point, so long as it is safe, should remain open until an alternative for the energy, jobs and tax revenue can be provided for. But Entergy must do everything possible to assure the public that it is operating the plant safely and responsibly. Failing to maintain the sirens does not accomplish that goal.”
