Piermont Police Chief Michael O'Shea said there are still homes that are unoccupied as they undergo repairs from Hurricane Sandy.
He reminded residents that if they are going to be away from home, they should call the Piermont Police at 359-1258 to file a closed home report. Police will then add periodic checks of the home to their regular patrols.
He also pointed out that even in the winter, Piermont Police receive complaints of groups of cyclists riding side-by-side rather than single file.
"It is important that they ride single file and follow the rules of the road," O'Shea said.
