Power restored to Liberty Street residents downtown | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Power has been restored downtown to residents on Liberty Street, according to a release from the mayor's office.
Though there's no one home to enjoy the newly restored service. The Duval County Emergency Management said it's trying to get people back in their homes as quickly as possible.
Residents of about 20 Riverwalk Townhomes had power again as of 1:06 p.m. on Tuesday, JEA told the Duval County Emergency Management.
The collapse on February 1 left residents without power for 23 days.
The city's emergency action will cover the expenses of the homeowners to return service after the street collapse severed an electrical line, knocking out power to the homes.
The city believes the permanent repairs, including reimbursing owners for their expenses, could cost about $200,000.
