Despite damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Norton officials have deemed it safe enough to go trick-or-treating this Halloween.
“I think Halloween is a go,” said Norton Fire Chief Paul Schleicher. “Parents should remind the children to stay away from any lines that might still be down,” he added.
As of Tuesday afternoon, all roads in Norton are open. However, approximately 1,200 customers are still without power. National Grid has been working on transmission and public safety issues and will be restoring electricity as soon as possible. Schleicher has hopes that power will be restored to some areas during the day tomorrow.
