On the Agenda: Town to Talk LI Sound Dredge Dumping

A federal proposal to dump dredge spoils into the Long Island Sound is only one item on the agenda for Southold Town Board Tuesday meeting.

Members of the Southold Town Board meet for regular work session at 9 a.m. and then for a meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall on Tuesday.

Work session includes:

11 a.m.: Phillip Beltz, Fred Andrews & John Viteretti of the Housing Advisory Commission reconsider of First Time Homebuyer Exemption of Community Preservation Fund Tax

11:30 a.m.: Phillip Beltz, Mark Terry, Heather Lanza & Don Wilcenski will discuss the progress of the Town's Natural Resources Chapter "Water Resources"

12:30 p.m.: Councilman Al Krupski will talk about a meeting he went to in Riverhead last week with members of the Army Corps of Engineers and the federal Environmental Protection Agency, who proposed designating one or more dredged material disposal sites in the Eastern Long Island Sound — one site proposed right next to Fishers Island.

At the 7:30 p.m. meeting, among other items, the board will vote to approve $20,000 for the Town Shellfish program at Cedar Beach and will vote to approve appointment of Donald Dzenkowski to the position of part-time temporary Southold Town Bay Constable for the police department, effective Jan. 16 at a rate of $30.00 per hour.

I am confused the bay constanlble retires after 29 years and then is rehired on a part time basis @$30.00 per hour is this a budget savings or just another perk?

It's called double dipping.

Regarding dredge dumping: What is it about Long Island Sound that makes officials want to kill it? It seems that we are always hearing from people who want to use the Sound, which is not an open body of water, for various purposes that can cause real damage to the ecosystem. Remember the liquified propane delivery system? I kept thinking about the fireball that possibly could eliminate our lives. "OK, that didn't go, so let's dream up a new thing... I got it, we'll dump tons of dredging material from all across the USA into Long Island Sound, that should do the trick!"

ACTUALLY I WAS TOLD BY A LOCAL BAYMAN HE IS JUST FILLING IN FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS UNTIL THE NEWLY HIRED BAY CONSTABLE COMPLETES HIS TRAINING SO THE TOWN CAN RUN ITS CONDITIONAL SHELLFISHING PROGRAM IN MATTITUCK CREEK. I AM TOLD THAT WITHOUT HIS SUPPORT THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPEN.
