County Transfer of Long Wharf to Sag Harbor Comes Up for Vote

The Suffolk County Legislature could decide as soon as Dec. 18, The Sag Harbor Express reports.

Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, I-Montauk, introduced a bill Tuesday to transfer ownership of Long Wharf to the village of Sag Harbor for a buck, The Sag Harbor Express reports.

The idea has been in the air for two years, and now it could come to fruition as soon as Dec. 18 — the first date that the Legislature could potentially put it to a vote, according to The Express.

The Express reports that the presently 1,000-foot-long wharf was bought by the village in 1947 for $5,000, but given to Suffolk County for $1 months later after the village could not foot the bill for costly repairs and maintainance.

The Legislator voted in March to hand the deed to Windmill Beach — a small tract of land adjacent to the Long Wharf — over to the village, and the document was presented to the village trustees in August.
