Onset Village Market closed after causing power outage

Aug 1, 2018

The Onset Village Market was closed on Monday, July 30, by Building Commissioner David Riquinha after improperly installed equipment at the store caused a power outage at the Onset Fire Department.

According to Health Agent Robert Ethier, the Onset Village Market had installed new equipment which overpowered the grid with its high voltage, causing the store and the fire department to lose power.

As the Onset Village Market prepares and serves food, Ethier visited the store along with Riquinha following the power outage.

Either said large coolers as well as power boxes had been improperly installed by a family member of the market owners without proper permits.

The market will remain closed until proper permits are secured and a licensed electrician visits the store.
