              John Betsch,Kenny's Beach Civic Assoc

JOHN BETSCH:  Good evening, John Betsch, Southold.  I am here representing the Kenney’s/McCabe’s Civic Association, I just want to for resolution 260, the support letter for the Group for the East End application, just to thank the Board for their consideration as assumingly their approval of that letter.  If this happens and works out well, it’s really to the benefit of almost everybody.  The area residents, Peconic Dunes camp, Peconic Dunes attendees and the assets of the Town.  So I appreciate the Town’s consideration of this letter.

 

SUPERVISOR RUSSELL:  John, our appreciation is towards you.  For a community group that came together that’s trying to address an issue which is the health of Great Pond.  It’s a huge task and the fact that you are willing to take this on speaks volumes about your commitment to the community.  Thank you.  Would anybody else like to address any of the agenda items? 

              John Carter, Mattituck

JOHN CARTER:  John Carter, I live in Mattituck and I am a member of the Mattituck-Laurel Civic Association.  I am here tonight as a Board member to thank the Southold Town Board, Suffolk County, particularly Legislator Al Krupski and New York State for the attention they paid to the traffic intersection of Main Road, Love Lane and Old Sound Avenue in Mattituck.  It is my understanding that tonight a resolution is going to be passed to conduct a study of that intersection, engineering study, and on behalf of not only the Civic Association but also the many people that participated in the public meetings that we hosted, the people that participated in the round table that came up with the recommendations which we provided to the town, county and state.  On behalf of all of us, thank you so much for all your efforts, your attention and we look forward to participating in the project as it goes forward. 

 

SUPERVISOR RUSSELL:  Thank you very much.  We appreciate it. 

 

MR. CARTER:  You’re welcome.

              Comment regarding resolution 248

SUPERVISOR RUSSELL:  Can you quickly explain to everybody what this is about? 

 

COUNCILMAN RULAND:  I will quickly explain, well, it's rarely that I can quickly explain that the Highway Superintendent, as has been in,  by the Town of Riverhead, has finally made a connection with the Office of General Services and is able to purchase surplus US Government equipment through the New York State Office of General Services at a fraction of the cost of new.  While the vehicles aren't new, they are very low mileage, some 10,000 miles or less.  Many of them have come from airports where they have been used in snow removal or moving heavy equipment and it's really a win/win for the town.  We have an aging fleet of super heavy plows, some of them date back to the 40's and the 50's and for insurance purposes we have been looking at ways of updating them to a much greater, newer model year and you are looking at a vehicle in the $135,000-$150,000 range, so this is something that the Highway Superintendent hopes that he will begin to use this program as well as for some other equipment upgrades that we are looking for. 

 

SUPERVISOR RUSSELL: That's actually $135,000 vehicle for less than $5,000.
