Meeting held in Bayonne to discuss oil spillage

BAYONNE - A meeting in Bayonne was held today to discuss the spilled oil that still remains in the area more than two weeks after Sandy.

City officials have signed contracts to clean up the massive oil spill that came with the floods after Sandy, but News 12 New Jersey found some city residents who say that cleanup is coming too late to help them.

People living in the area near Prospect Avenue and East 22nd Street are concerned that their homes or entire neighborhood could be condemned.

Residents are also concerned about whether the seeping oil could cause a spark, fire or even an explosion once power is restored to the area.

The mayor says he's not certain what will happen to the buildings or homes.
