Farmingville, NY – On April 28, Councilwoman Jane Bonner met with the executive staff of The Fisherman magazine at Cedar Beach and filled them in on all the improvements that the Town completed in time for the 2021 boating and fishing season. The results of the project are better water quality, healthier fish, more variety of fish and a new fishing pier. Pictured left to right are The Fisherman Owner/Publisher, Mike Caruso; Associate Publisher, Angelo Donofrio; Councilwoman Bonner; and Long Island Editor, Matt Broderick. During their visit, Councilwoman Bonner was interviewed for a video feature about the improvements. It is currently available to view at www.thefisherman.com.

Earlier this year, Councilwoman Bonner announced that the dredging of Mount Sinai Harbor was completed. It is the final phase of the Mount Sinai Harbor jetty reconstruction and dredging project which was started in May 2020.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “I was happy to meet with my friends from The Fisherman magazine on their visit to Mount Sinai Harbor. It’s such a beautiful location and a very popular destination for boaters and fishing enthusiasts. Now that the boating season is underway, I am sure that the improvements will be welcomed by everyone who makes Mount Sinai Harbor their home port this summer.”

Earlier this year, Councilwoman Bonner announced that the dredging of Mount Sinai Harbor was completed. It is the final phase of the Mount Sinai Harbor jetty reconstruction and dredging project which was started in May 2020. The Councilwoman worked for many years to secure the funding and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) permits that were required before the project could start. She also worked closely with the Army Corps of Engineers to bring the project to fruition. Funding came from a $3 million New York State grant secured by former NYS Senator Ken LaValle, and $5 million from the Town of Brookhaven. Dredging of the inlet was recently completed by Suffolk County at a cost of $2 million and the dredge spoils were given to Port Jefferson Village for beach sand replenishment.
