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.

The county plans to use $26.4 million of previously allocated storm recovery money to do the work.
