OAKDALE—Suffolk County Legis. William Lindsay met with residents at the Oakdale Civic meeting last week regarding plans to sewer parts of Oakdale using New York State storm relief funds. Lindsay shared the tentative boundaries and timeline for the project including news there would be an Oakdale sewer referendum vote in the future. This vote would impact those residents located within the area to receive sewers, and it would take place after a sewer district was established. The county plans to use $26.4 million of previously allocated storm recovery money to do the work.
Attention Great River residents! You can help your community, help The Great South Bay, and help lead The South Shore to a better future by voting YES January 22nd on the sewering ballot. The money is there to spend from federal Sandy Relief funds, but this is our one chance. Cesspools are destroying the bay. Other communities will have their votes coming up. Let's start with a YES to a healthy bay and to a more vibrant South Shore!
