Bulkhead and property maintenance

The following is an update from Christine Fetton, Director of Municipal Works, Town of Southampton concerning recently acquired NY Rising properties

Repair and replacement of bulkheads on town owned properties will begin with the one located at 301 Long Neck Blvd hopefully at the end of this week.  From there we will move towards 206 Sylvan Ave, followed by the three at 186 Sylvan, 194 Sylvan and 287 Royal Ave.

We respectfully request that during this time, that if you have any questions and/or concerns that you please direct them to the Town.  As these will be active construction sites, covered under the Contractors insurances we also respect that you advise any interested neighbors to refrain from entering these sites while under construction.  Our main concern in addition to health and safety is the timely replacement of these bulkheads.

We appreciate your patience to get to this point and as we move forward in this project.  In addition to the work associated with bulkhead replacement we are currently moving towards a more scheduled approach to the maintenance associated with the properties that the Town acquired through the NY Rising program.

An untimely passing…

On any given summer day you could see his Genesis Landscaping truck parked on our
neighborhood streets while Anibal “Julio” took care of our lawn and garden needs. Sadly,
I must report that Julio passed away this week as a result of being hit by a car while mowing a lawn in Ridge.

Friends have set up a web site for the benefit of his wife and three daughters. Donations can be made at https://www.gofundme.com/aceitunofamily.

Proposal Creating New Zip Code for Flanders, Riverside and Northampton advances to house floor

It is now eligible for a floor vote by the full House of Representatives. Mr. Zeldin said he will work “to ensure that this bill is passed before the end of the year.”
