Report a Pothole!

Dear Neighbor,

The following message was received from Senator Phil Boyle:

Knowing the damage the harsh winter has had on our roads, I am proud to inform you that this year’s State Budget includes $40 million for pothole repair. This funding will help get our driving routines back to normal and that is why I was proud to fight for its inclusion into the budget.

Local village, town and county crews have been working around the clock to fill potholes, but they deserve help from Albany. As such, I am pleased to announce that the following funds will be allocated for local municipalities to improve the roads that Long Islanders rely on. The breakdown of the funds are below:

Town of Babylon: $142,047

Town of Islip: $252,853

Village of Babylon: $24,322

Village of Brightwaters: $12,231

Village of Lindenhurst: $52,556

Additionally, the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) will provide Suffolk County with $243,198 in funding for street repairs.

If you know of a pothole and would like to report it, please visit my website: boyle.nysenate.gov and click on the pothole button on the left hand side. If you have any additional questions about a pothole needing repair or the state’s budget please do not hesitate to call my district office at (631) 665-2311.

Best regards,

Phil Boyle

Engineers Begin Sewer District Study for South Shore Communities

Islip, NY – The Islip Town Engineering Department has moved ahead with plans to conduct a study of the feasibility of developing a sewer district, with a state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant, for communities stretching from Bayport to Great River. Spearheaded by Councilman Anthony S. Senft, Jr. and NYS Assemblyman Andrew Garbarino, the Town hired engineering firm P.W. Grosser Consulting in November to determine the steps that government officials would need to take to create a sewer district, as well as the costs associated with any such plan. The Suffolk County Department of Public Works has also reached out to the Town, asking that this study be used as a planning tool for their future sewage engineering studies and projects in this area.


This week, Senft joined County Executive Steve Bellone, dozens of lawmakers and environmental leaders to seek more than $750 million in Federal Sandy Recovery Funds to sewer key South Shore residential areas in an effort to reduce dangerous nitrogen levels in drinking water. Senft unveiled the Town of Islip Sewer Study which includes areas stretching from Great River to Bayport, and he stressed the equally important benefit of downtown business development that sewering will bring.
