Lyons mobile home park hopes to have power restored Friday

Canalside Mobile Home Park in Lyons, cut off from utility power for a month, is expected to have electricity restored this Friday.

That is according to the owner of the property who also denied he is a slumlord.

In a letter emailed to the Finger Lakes Times, park owner Phil Provenzano said installation of a new electrical system is “90 percent complete.”

Work includes the installation of new underground conduit and wiring that comes from a new New York State Electric & Gas utility and transformer and runs to a disconnect for each home in the park.

“We have had delays in receiving parts for the new disconnects but, God-willing and weather permitting, we should be ready for a final inspection by next Friday,” Provenzano said in the letter, which can be read in its entirety on Page 6A today.

Park residents have been without electricity from the utility since July 11, when Dick Bogan, code enforcement officer for the town of Lyons, asked NYSEG to cut off power to the trailer park for the safety of residents, explaining the sub-par wiring in the park posed a fire threat.
