Another top executive and a trustee of the Long Island utility company that has been heavily criticized for its response to Superstorm Sandy have announced their resignations.

According to Newsday, LIPA vice president of customer service, Bruce Germano, said Monday night he was stepping down at the end of the year. He called it “purely a personal decision.”

LIPA said board member X. Cristofer Damianos has resigned to spend time on his real estate business.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has formed a commission to investigate utilities’ storm responses. LIPA has come under severe criticism.

Newsday also said some LIPA customers were upset that they were billed for service during outages. LIPA said the charge will even out after the next meter reading.
