LOWVILLE Three Lewis County employees are going to Long Island to help the Superstorm Sandy clean-up effort.
Donald E. Mallette, a county code enforcement officer, left Saturday for a one-week stint assisting code officials in Islip, according to County Manager David H. Pendergast.
And two dispatchers, Michelle Widrick and Denyse Haswell, are slated to leave Thursday for a weeklong stay in Suffolk County, he said.
The dispatchers will be working in the emergency operations center and be deployed from there, Mr. Pendergast said.
The county, which has sent employees downstate in the wake of prior storms, recently received the request for assistance from state officials, he said.
