Back to Basics - Supervisor Angie M. Carpenter Delivers 2015 State of the Town Address

Islip, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter delivered the State of the Town Address today, April 23, 2015, in the Town Board Room of Islip Town Hall, before the Islip Town Board Members, Councilman Steven Flotteron, Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt, Councilman John Cochrane, Jr., Councilman Anthony Senft, Town Clerk Olga Murray and the Receiver of Taxes Alexis Weik, addressing the priorities and goals of the Town of Islip.

She thanked the Commissioner of the Town’s Public Works Department, Tom Owens, and his crews for working tirelessly to ensure the Town’s roadways are safe for our residents and business owners. Supervisor Carpenter mentioned the recently passed Capital Budget plan, which will now provide the funding for Public Works to pave the Town’s roads during the spring and summer seasons. 

“With the nicer weather finally here, the Commissioner and his hard-working crew have been working non-stop repairing over 75,000 potholes since January 1st, filling cracks, seal coating pavement and sweeping our local roads,” said Supervisor Carpenter.

Islip Town Supervisor Angie M. Carpenter’s State of the Town Address

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

“Back to the Basics”

Good afternoon I want to thank all of you for coming here today as we share our report on the current state of Islip Town. Many of you were here just a little more than a month ago when I took my Oath of Office as the 64th Supervisor of the Town of Islip. It is truly an honor and privilege to serve the more than 300,000 residents of this great town….a town in which my family and I have enjoyed living and working for most of our lives. I am pleased and honored to be here today, following former Town Supervisor and present New York State Senator, Tom Croci. I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Senator Croci and each and every Islip Town Board Member for all their efforts throughout the years and their ongoing commitment to the Town of Islip. I want to particularly thank my fellow Town Board members for making me feel so welcome in my new role as Supervisor, while helping to make the transition of leadership as orderly and efficient as possible.

Today, as I share this report on the state of our town, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the hard work and efforts of so many others…many of whom it may seem go unrecognized, but nevertheless whose roles and responsibilities help make our town a better place.

Having just gotten through another severe winter, with historic, record-breaking amounts of snow and ice, we have our Commissioner of Public Works Tom Owens and his staff to thank for their untiring efforts clearing a total of roughly three feet of snow and ice from our roads this past winter, in addition to maintaining 58 town buildings and facilities, the maintenance of town-owned sumps, and the removal and maintenance of trees located in the Town Right-of-Way.

Now, with the nicer weather finally here, the Commissioner and his hard-working crew have been working non-stop repairing over 75,000 potholes since January 1st, filling cracks, seal coating pavement and sweeping our local roads. I am pleased to report that I have requested that the town’s Department of Public Works put our graffiti truck back into action. Don’t know if you noticed the truck on your way in today, but look for the truck’s highly efficient spray machine, cleaning up graffiti throughout the town. I urge residents to use our Graffiti Hot Line 224-2772.

Town Celebrates Earth Day, April 22, with Brookwood Hall Clean-Up and Beautification

Over 1000 flowers planted, local residents and companies volunteer

Islip, NY – Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron was joined by Supervisor Angie Carpenter and members of the Islip Town Board as he celebrated Earth Day, April 22nd, with the clean-up and beautification of the Brookwood Hall grounds, located at 50 Irish Lane in East Islip. The clean-up was co-sponsored by Keep Islip Clean and the Islip Arts Council, and spearheaded by Councilman Flotteron as part of his Brookwood Hall renovation efforts. Over 200 volunteers from the community came together to help clean-up, rake leaves, plant flowers, and all-around beautify the grounds of the 1903 mansion. Among the volunteers were companies such as Quintal Landscaping, PSE&G, Capital One, Keep Islip Clean, and more. More than 1000 flowers were donated and planted. Food and music was provided by local businesses. Councilman Flotteron expressed his pride to see so many different people come together for what he considers the beginning of a much-needed renovation.

“This building has been here since 1903 and it is integral that we treat it as the historic landmark that it is. This is only one step in the renovation of Brookwood Hall and the Town of Islip is excited for the future of this building and its grounds,” said Councilman Flotteron.
