Central Maine Power Co. line workers were reporting to work with overnight bags, some Emera Maine crews from northern Maine were being staged Downeast, and Time Warner Cable workers were stocking extra equipment in their trucks Monday.
All were part of last-minute preparations by utility companies bracing for an expected blizzard that could bring down wires and poles and interrupt service.
“We’ve been working on this for several days,” Gail Rice, a spokeswoman for CMP, said Monday.
Gas stations in seven southern and coastal counties in Maine will be required to sell cleaner-burning “reformulated gas” beginning June 1 as part of an agreement between the state and federal governments.
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Monday that only reformulated gas – a blend designed to reduce emissions of air pollutants – can be sold in York, Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin, Kennebec, Knox and Lincoln counties starting in June.
Maine opted out of the federal government’s reformulated gas program in the late 1990s because of contamination caused by methyl tertiary-butyl ether, MTBE, which was one of the additives at the time.
The Maine Human Rights Commission ruled Monday that a Norridgewock couple discriminated against a former tenant last summer by attempting to evict her for having a service dog and then retaliated against her for filing a fair housing complaint with the commission.
The commission vote was 5-0 each on claims of discrimination and retaliation brought against property owners Oakley and Donna Brann of Norridgewock by Dawn Zammuto, whose daughter visited her home accompanied by a service dog last August despite the fact that the Branns had a no pets rule.
The rulings Monday mean a 90-day conciliation will begin, during which the parties can attempt to settle the matter without going to court, according to commission case controller Cindy Rocque.
Monetary damages are typical in such cases, said Patricia Ender, a staff attorney and fair housing coordinator at Pine Tree Legal Assistance, which is representing Zammuto.
“There could be out-of-pocket costs, but there’s also actual damages, which include emotional distress damages in housing,” Ender said this month.
