Message from Asharoken Mayor Greg Letica:

June 27, 2022

Dear Neighbors:

Based on the Village's new fire prevention law and out of an abundance of caution, it has been decided that bonfires will not be permitted from houses 100-200 on the sound side. Beach fires will still be permitted in this area. Please refer to the new law to familiarize yourself with the guidelines and comply with requests from the Asharoken PD for both beach fires and bonfires: Restrictions on Fourth of July Bonfires. The Village's long-standing tradition of bonfires on the 4th can only continue if we use common-sense and caution. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Congressman Tom Suozzi called on Friday to let us know that he was able to get $1,000,000 for seawall repair into the House appropriations bill. This is a critical first step but does not assure that the Village will get the money. The bill still has to pass both the House and the Senate. We will provide updates as we move forward. I want to thank Congressman Suozzi for all of his efforts to help the Village. He has been a terrific ally in the last six years.

Last, there was a story over the weekend in The Observer about the expansion of the Northport sewer system into Asharoken. At this time there are no plans nor have there been any discussions to extend the Northport sewer system into Asharoken.

Have a great day,
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica

Dear Neighbors:

I am pleased to report that resident John Rittenhouse was able to assist the Village in securing a new outboard engine for the police boat. If all goes according to plan, I expect the police boat will be in service by July 15th. I would like to thank John for all his efforts.

Deputy Mayor Pam Pierce and I met with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Town of Huntington Highway Department to develop a plan to stabilize a section of the seawall. I will keep you posted on our progress.

Last, I would like to wish all the dads a very happy Father's Day. Enjoy your special day.

Best Regards,
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica

Dear Residents:

At the Board of Trustees meeting on June 7, the Village awarded two paving contracts:
  1. Poscillico Civil was awarded the contract for Village Hall to 285 Asharoken Ave. and the entrance to Beach Plum Drive. National Grid will be reimbursing the Village for this contract cost.
  2. Rosemar Paving was awarded the contract for 355-501 Asharoken Avenue and shoulder repair. Part of the contract cost will be paid for using a $70,000 multimodal grant and Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) funds. The start of these paving projects will begin very soon. In addition the Village has applied for a DASNY grant to repave Bevin Road. We are waiting for approval of this request.
Fourth of July: Grucci is planning another outstanding fireworks display, and the barge and tugboat have been secured. Big thanks goes to Carole Casamassima, Jean Bonawandt and Linda Letica for raising $13,000 to help defray the costs of this amazing Village tradition.

The fireworks display will take place on Monday, July 4th around 9:15pm, and the rain date is on Tuesday, July 5th.

Have a great weekend.
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica
