GOUVERNEUR — The village Board of Trustees canceled its regular meeting Tuesday night and rescheduled it for 6:45 p.m. today because the municipal building had no electricity.

The problem began at about 5 p.m. at the village’s hydroplant, which powers the building, and a backup generator failed. The Police Department’s telephones worked and officials planned to hook up a small generator or make arrangements with the state police to help with coverage.

“Whatever it takes, we’re going to provide the services here,” said Mayor Ronald P. McDougall.

A backup system at the village’s water plant, which is also powered by the hydroelectric facility, was working.
