Farmingville, NY - On April 30, Supervisor Ed Romaine was joined by Town Councilman Neil Foley and Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri to make their inspection of the new Patchogue River jetty and lighthouse at the Town’s Sandspit Marina. Reconstruction of the jetty and lighthouse is a joint project funded by New York State ($650,000), the Town ($300,000) and the Village ($100,000). A new fishing pier, which will be accessible to people with disabilities, is to be constructed over the jetty using Town of Brookhaven Community Block Grant funds ($100,000). The new jetty improves the navigation of vessels moving in and out of the river and the lighthouse provides a beacon to guide them safely on the bay. Pictured left to right in both photos are Councilman Foley, Mayor Pontieri and Supervisor Romaine.
