Linda and I would like to wish everyone celebrating Yom Kippur a happy holiday.
Our Annual Coastal cleanup is Saturday, September 22 from 9am to 4pm. (Rain date September 23). The sign-in table is located at Asharoken Beach in the parking lot next to Village Hall. Volunteers are available to answer all your questions. This is an excellent opportunity for students to earn community service hours; certificates will be issued.
Plastic has become a major source of ocean pollution; let's all make a difference by taking part in cleaning washed-up debris. All debris collected will be weighed and placed in a 20 yard dumpster supplied by the Town of Huntington.
Whether you decide to clean up your own beach or a nearby local beach, every bit makes a difference to preserve our marine environment. Enjoy and have fun.
Wishing everyone a great day!
Mayor Greg Letica

Asharoken will be sponsoring the 9th Annual Coastal Cleanup on September 22, rain date September 23.
Click here to read the official press release.
The committee will be set up at the Asharoken Beach parking lot from 9am to 4pm. As always we will provide our volunteers with trash bags, gloves, data cards and pencils. Water, lemonade and light snacks will be available. Last year our volunteers collected enough shoreline trash to fill up a dumpster provided by the Town of Huntington. With your help we can once again make a difference.
For the past eight years the committee has submitted final paperwork to the Littoral Society, always citing the disturbing amounts of plastic straws found on our beaches. In a small but significant way, our Asharoken Cleanup has had a direct impact on bringing awareness to the plastic straw pollution. Food industries are making changes to stop using plastic straws.
Your volunteering is making a difference. Please find a few hours in your day to participate. All volunteers will receive a community service certificate signed by Mayor Letica. Email any questions to Cathyzimmermann@coastalcleanupny.com. Or call 631-662-2210. Make a difference. Come and clean up!

On August 9, 2018 the Village of Asharoken in partnership with the Town of Huntington completed the repair to the seawall which protects Asharoken Avenue near Bevin Road. A sinkhole at the seawall had formed landward of the steel sheeting. The project was overseen by Aram Terchunian of First Coastal Engineering. Approximately 180 tons of bedding and cap stone were placed into the sinkhole to support the exposed steel sheeting significantly improving the protection of the roadway, the seawall and public safety. This repair is only a temporary solution to prolong the lifespan of the failing seawall prior to a new permanent replacement.

I would like to thank Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci, Superintendent of Highways Kevin Orelli and all the staff of the Highway Department for their incredible assistance on this project. The Village purchased the materials and the town provided the machinery and labor to complete the two day project. Additionally I would like to thank our Deputy Mayor Pam Pierce for supervising the entire project and Trustee/Police Commissioner Mel Ettinger for his work with the police department to assure traffic flow through the construction area. Finally, thanks to the members of Parking Lot 13 who kindly allowed the Village to stage the materials on the property during the project.
The Village is working with the US Army Corps of Engineers regarding a plan to permanently replace the seawall. I will update you as more information becomes available.
