Farmingville, NY – Brookhaven Town Councilman Dan Panico has announced that two dirt roads in the Hamlet of Mastic – Allyn and Belden Streets (see aerial in yellow) – have been formally taken into the inventory of Town roadways. A resolution authorizing this action was sponsored by Councilman Panico and was unanimously approved by members of the Town Board at the April 27 Town Board Meeting.
Responding directly to several requests from area residents, Councilman Panico worked closely with the Highway Department to have these dirt roads become part of their inventory for the purpose of paving.
“While both of these streets were never formally taken into the Town inventory, they were used as such by local motorists and school buses as a means to cross between nearby streets,” noted Councilman Panico. “These roads were in subpar condition and became mud pits when it rained. The people I represent deserve better, and I never gave up my commitment to get this accomplished. I thank the Highway Department in advance for their work and willingness to make this happen for our residents."
Councilman Panico previously pushed forward the construction of Roberts Street, which was a major highway project for the residents of Mastic. Allyn and Belden Streets are slated to be constructed and paved during the 2017 paving season.
