And those residents now have to raise their homes. They were never. In two thousand twelve after the storm or in two thousand thirteen but just this month. Of course, all these years later programs, like New York rising are no longer available. So residents would have to pay out of pocket, and it could cost one or even two hundred thousand dollars depending on the property when oceanside resident I spoke with says, although they will not be forced by the town to raise their homes, if they do not the town will no longer issue permits to them. So if you want to add a bathroom or decker solar panels, you cannot, and of course, if you want to sell your home, you likely can't do that either. Because who would want to buy it in many ways their stock? What's the town supervisor doing to help out? Well, I spoke with the town. Supervisor Lauren Gillan at length about this. She says she feels for the residents. She just took office last year. So in two thousand twelve it was a different administration. She blames them for not telling the residents. She says she's trying to get federal and state funds to help these homeowners. So they won't have to pay out of pocket. Sophia is there an appeals process here. She also told me that. Yes, there will be an appeals process for residents. So for example, if you feel the house you live and did not have an extreme amount of damage after sandy, and you don't believe it should be raised. You can make your case and possibly win.

The first is the fact that people view these advertisements as obnoxious and out of place council member. Mark Levin says that they're going to the city's waterfront areas to get away from things like this. Secondly, the issue is of the fine. A lawsuit filed today says it valley who has to pay the twenty five thousand per day and at the company. Did not take its boats off the water council member thinks that the twenty five thousand dollars as high as that might sound is not much to these companies to create these billboards. He says a company like ballyhoo makes tens of thousands of dollars per ad. So it's not really much of a dent in their pockets here. Plus those boats are still out there. So Levin wants to increase the fine to one hundred thousand dollars, basically, helping to put these people out of business. All right Mack. Thanks, WCBS reporter MAC Rosenberg..

Kevin what happened walk us through this while Stephen few weeks ago, you might recall the governor stepped in and said he was ordering a full review brought together a team of engineers from Columbia and Cornell, universities, and it turns out they came up with an alternative. There's a lot of technical stuff. But at the end of the day instead of ripping up and replacing a slab of concrete where the cables are that were damaged by sandy by the saltwater that came in from that storm inside the tunnel. They'll just put new wires up along the walls and rack them up. They'll be using a lot of new technology. But essentially instead of all this labor intensive work. They're just going to replace the wires with new ones and rack them up inside the walls. This is a plan that instead of the fifteen month shutdown while instead. I mean weekend work night work on one time with train still running in both directions with no real disruption. Kevin this shutdown plan had been on the table for years. What about the timing of this? Did anyone ask the governor? Why? Now, suddenly. Well, this is a tried and true plan was what we heard from the governor and from MTA in terms of ripping up the bench wall inside. This is something that's been done. Not just here in the city, but throughout the country that is the proposal that has been what they normally do when they try to replace the wires inside the tunnels. So for them. It was a tried and true method, but the governor said that fifteen month long, a delay was too much that it was something that needed to be talked about needed to be looked at in a different in a different view. And these engineers came up with techniques that have been used before in other subway systems in other parts of the country, but not altogether. And this is a plan that will have all these new techniques together. And it's something that hasn't been done before inside a subway tunnel here in the US quickly before we let you go. What about the contracts the alternatives that were pitched what happens to all that stuff? We did hear from Andy Byford the transit chief for MTA. He says that a lot of the proposals the alternatives that they talked about HOV lanes. He believes they won't be using those HOV lanes over the bridge between Manhattan, and Brooklyn.

Also joining us she's WCBS reporter Steve burns who had been putting in a lot of work on a special ten part series. Previewing APRIL's L train down a well. All that work.

Steve what have you been hearing from those on the ground in Brooklyn after the governor's announcement today. Yeah. I got got about six hours of interviews to to throw in the trash today. But anyway, yeah, it's a strange mix of of relief and a little bit of resentment to obviously, you know, so much planning strategizing into this people made some really life changing decisions. Knowing was what was around the corner, they moved businesses prepared for the worst. Even some new businesses started up like these van services we've been talking about. So you can imagine there's a bit of irritation that everything here got up ended at the eleventh hour, I just got off the phone with policy most gave the north Brooklyn chamber. They've been organizing forums. They were fielding questions from businesses. They'd have to move or go out of business.

Hey, Steve, we've been hearing a lot about how the real estate market was affected by the shutdown. Unplanned people signing cheaper leases in their buildings. What changes could be coming there? Yeah. That was obviously one of those stories that was really emblematic of the magnitude of this whole thing rents were going way down in one of the city's hottest neighborhoods landlords had been going out of their way to offer incentives for people to stay during the shutdown. So obviously, if you signed a lease with a few hundred dollar discount, you can't really go back on that. And those renders are now pretty much the luckiest people in the city, but I'm hearing from folks in the real estate realm that for you. It's still on the market rents are expected to jump back up pretty quickly here, though with the added caveat here that if the governor's new innovative plan doesn't work out as intended things could go south again, we sell see thanks Steve WCBS Steve burns five thirty-six on the afternoon roundup.

He was a major factor in the midterms only a third of voters said he played no role who they voted for CBS news political contributor, Peter mayor with the results both parties have bragging rights. Democrats have won control of the house. Republicans have increased their hold on the Senate with wins in states where Donald Trump invested heavy political capital. Democrats picked up key governorships, including Michigan and Kansas states that went for candidate Trump two years ago. Bottom line the country, and now congress remained deeply divided President Trump reacting to the election night results moments ago, he said he got congratulations from many foreign nations that were waiting about hoping on trade deals in that quote.

The choices he'll make to fill out vacancies in his administration. And also further embolden him when it comes to judicial appointments he has a bit more pad. Now, he doesn't have to worry as much about some moderate, Republicans defecting and as always their complaints about votes in ballots in a wet election day may have been some of the reasons why the problems around here machines kept getting stuck the wait time was long sometimes really long and the frustration of those long lines is palpable. WCBS reporter Kevin Ran Cohen is live with more about that. Kevin Wayne for the first time the city used a two page paper ballot voters at two separate them pass each one through a scanner well as you can imagine that takes time, and it doesn't help. When the equipment breaks down some scanners didn't work there weren't enough. It's sympolic stations and then paper jams. The city's board of elections is headed up by Michael Ryan, he says turn out the rain. Those changes all led to those long lines in some cases, people waited more than two to three hours to cast their ballot city council speaker Cory Johnson was with us last night. Is director Ryan has to go to experience. What you experienced today was completely unacceptable, and we need significant changes Ryan says they need time to review what worked what didn't work said changes have to come from the state legislature to can't enact any of those changes. And despite all the problems more than one point nine million people in the city came out to vote. Thank you. Kevin rincon. You know, the champagne is still on ice in Connecticut.

Get out your hairdryer that that's probably the line of the night. It came from Connecticut's secretary of state in the wee hours because damp ballots. They they were problem. There's some of them might have to be counted by hand ninety one percent of the tally in so far democrat Ned Lamont leads Republican Bob Stefanski by less than one point Newhaven still has to report and that could be good for Lamont. He carried Connecticut's big cities. Bridgeport Hartford Doug Schwartz director of the Quinnipiac poll says this election follows a trend to elections in Connecticut have been very close in two thousand ten the election was decided by less than a percentage point and in two thousand fourteen the governors election was decided by just three point. It's so close there might be legal challenges Republican Stephan Ascii has already launched complaints about some last minute voter registrations in New Haven and at you. Yukon, the candidates are lying low this morning. Neither has made. Any statements independent is Greenville got four percent of the vote. This close race it illustrates the bitter divide here in Connecticut, where the Quinnipiac poll found many people were voting based upon their feelings about President Trump and about Connecticut's present governor Malloy, Wayne. All right. So we're still watching in Connecticut matters and the only place, I'm Jim Krasula, Atlanta. Although she's trailing by tens of thousands of votes in the Georgia governor's race democrat, Stacey Abrams refuses to give up that promise. You tonight. We're gonna make sure that every vote is counted. Every single Republican gubernatorial hopeful Brian Kemp, I built this campaign a one promise that as governor. I would put hard work in Georgia's first thousands of absentee and provisional ballots. Must still be counted. Jim Chris CBS news, Atlanta, Florida Republicans picked up to very high races.
