Islip Town Board Formalizes Language Access Policy

Islip, NY – The Islip Town Board today voted to formalize its Language Access Policy in an effort to accommodate all Islip Town residents, regardless of the language they speak. The formal policy calls for the Division of Constituent Services to ensure that interpreter services can be available to accommodate constituents who require language interpretation assistance. Many of these practices have long been in place in the Town, but will be further executed and promoted to the public via the Town’s official website, social media sites, and e-alert services.

“It is of great importance that we are able to communicate to all our residents and visitors to Islip. These language services will offer us the opportunity to convey vital information to all,” said Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci.

For those in need of interpreter services who wish to speak at a public meeting, it is requested that the resident contact Constituent Services at least one week prior to the meeting, so that arrangements can be made to have an interpreter of the appropriate language present. Constituent Services can be reached at (631) 224-5380.

ISLIP TOWN COUNCILMAN STEVE FLOTTERON, VOLUNTEERS BEGIN EFFORT TO RESTORE BROOKWOOD HALL AND OBTAIN HISTORIC DESIGNATION

EAST ISLIP, NY (Sept. 19, 2014) – A decaying and long neglected historic mansion is finally getting some attention as community leaders, history buffs and architecture aficionados begin a restoration effort to get the building, once home to millionaires and later orphans, into the National Register of Historic Places.

Officials, led by Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron, today kicked off an effort to restore the historic, but decaying, more-than-century-old Georgian revival mansion in East Islip, called Brookwood Hall.

Flotteron and a group of volunteers from local historic, arts and business organizations spent the morning of September 19, tearing down ceilings and walls of the 1903 brick mansion in an effort to expose some of the 41-room home’s original grandeur.
