Islip Town Board Green Light’s Roberto Clemente Park Cleanup

ISLIP, NY--After a month-long vetting process the Town of Islip today announces the award of a $2.9 million contract to the lowest, most responsible bidder for the excavation, removal, transportation and disposal of contaminated fill that was illegally dumped at a Town park last year. The award, passed by Town Board legislation, authorizes Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter to enter into contract with Gramercy Group, Inc. of Wantagh, NY to begin the much anticipated cleanup of Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood.

"Special pains were taken to ensure that a thorough and meticulous investigation into this bidder’s qualifications was conducted,” Carpenter stated. “Our goal is to move forward efficiently, safely and responsibly to clean up Roberto Clemente Park, but only after diligently analyzing this company’s qualifications for the project --- the community and all our Town residents deserve nothing less.”

Islip Town Board Adopts 2015 Capital Budget

Islip, NY- The Islip Town Board passed a resolution at the April 21st Town Board Meeting to adopt a 2015 Capital Budget, which will allow capital projects that are currently underway to continue to progress on schedule, as well as to provide new funding for road resurfacing and repairs to the Town’s infrastructure.

“Developing a recommended 2015 Capital Budget has been a high priority since I was sworn in over a month ago. It would have been easy to recommend adopting the 2015 portion of the capital budget approved in 2014, but the capital budget is too important a document to include funding for project costs that may be out of date or which may no longer reflect current priorities or needs,” stated Supervisor Carpenter. “We reviewed every project request with each department. I appreciate the help and support of the departments in updating and re-prioritizing their capital requests.”

Islip, N.Y. – Today, Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined State Senator Tom Croci and her fellow Town Board members outside of Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood, where Senator Croci announced the allocation of $1 million of NYS funds to help remediate the park. The money will come from the 2015 New York State budget, which Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signed into law.

“I made a commitment to the residents of the Town of Islip and the Brentwood community when I was elected to the Senate that I would continue my partnership with them and the Town to clean up and restore Roberto Clemente Park,” said Senator Croci. “The money I secured in this year’s State Budget will help Supervisor Carpenter and the Town create a better, more beautiful park for the children and families of Brentwood, and lessen the financial impact of these improvements to the taxpayers of the Town.”
