I extend my thanks to Rensselaer County Executive McLaughlin, city of Troy Public Utilities Superintendent Chris Wheland and his staff, city of Troy Police and Fire Departments, Rich Elder from Rensselaer County Department of Health, and Rensselaer County Office of Emergency Services for their assistance provided during the initial service disruption and throughout the boil water order process.”
