Supervisor Carpenter, Senator Croci Announce $1 Million in State Funds to Clean-Up Roberto Clemente Park

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.”

Islip Town Supervisor Angie M. Carpenter, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine Sign Inter-municipal Agreement for Disposal of Ash

Islip, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie M. Carpenter was recently joined by Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine in signing an intermunicipal agreement that will allow Islip to dispose of certain materials generated at its Resource Recovery Facility - including ash and construction and demolition debris – at the Brookhaven Landfill. 

“This is another example of an intermunicipal agreement between neighboring towns that will in the long run, benefit our residents,” said Supervisor Carpenter. “This partnership with Brookhaven provides Islip with an avenue for disposal of ash, construction debris and other materials in a safe and responsible manner.”

Supervisor Romaine added, “I am happy to have the Town of Islip on board with this intermunicipal agreement. Cost-efficient and proper disposal of ash and other materials is beneficial to the environment and saves taxpayer dollars. We have a history of cooperation with our neighboring towns and I look forward to working with Supervisor Carpenter on more initiatives like this in the future.”

Islip Town Supervisor, Town Council Members Join U.S. Senator Charles Schumer in Urging FAA to Approve Islip MacArthur Airport Master Plan & Airport Layout Plan

Ronkonkoma, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie M. Carpenter and Town Councilmembers Trish Bergin Weichbrodt, John Cochrane, Jr., and Anthony Senft, Jr., joined U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer at a recent press conference held in the main atrium of Islip’s Long Island MacArthur Airport, where the Senator called upon the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to expedite approval of the airport’s Master Plan and Airport Layout Plan, submitted to the FAA in 2013. Approval is needed so that the airport can proceed in extending its second runway to approximately 7,000 feet, which would improve safety for flyers, while also helping to retain current airlines and attract new ones. During the press conference, Schumer cited a FAA report that outlined concerns that JFK, LaGuardia and Newark airports will be over capacity in 5 to 15 years, which will cause airlines to seek alternatives at nearby airports such as MacArthur. However, without the extension of the runway, MacArthur will not be a viable option. Supervisor Carpenter thanked Senator Schumer for his continued support of the airport, while stressing its economic importance to the Town of Islip and all of Long Island.
