Recovery Process at Islip Town Parks Continues; Removal of Contaminated Material at Bay Shore Marina Underway

Bay Shore, NY – The removal of approximately 30 tons of material containing a trace amount of non-friable asbestos in an area at Bay Shore Marina began yesterday by a licensed asbestos contractor, and is expected to be completed by August 9. Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci and Town Councilman Steve Flotteron were on hand on the first day of removal to assess the cleanup efforts.

In May, the Town conducted an overall assessment of all its parks, in response to illegal dumping that occurred at Roberto Clemente. Bay Shore Marina and the Clayton Street fields were the only sites out of the more than 100 parks inspected that were in need of remediation. The Town successfully applied for and received NYS Department of Labor (NYSDOL) approval for the removal of asbestos from both Bay Shore Marina and the Clayton Street fields. In preparation, nearly 900 tons of construction and debris from the former Central Islip Psychiatric Center was removed from the Clayton site in just 2 ½ days.

Islip Town’s Commitment to Economic Development Brings New Jobs, Senior Housing and Historic Preservation

Islip, NY – Above All Store Fronts Inc., a manufacturer of aluminum composite panels and windows, will soon move its operations to Hauppauge, bringing 75 jobs to Islip Town as it consolidates its operations under one roof and brings work now being outsourced out of state into its new facility.

The nearly $4.5 million expansion project in Islip Town, expected to be completed in March 2015, moved one step closer with the recent approval of an Industrial Development Agency Inducement Resolution by Islip IDA Board members. The project now is subject to a public hearing and final approval by the IDA board.

Above All plans to purchase a 45,679-square-foot building at 50 Gilpin Ave., Hauppauge, where it intends to move its operations, now in 17,000 square feet in Patchogue. It will bring 63 current jobs and expects to add an additional 12 within two years. The building currently is owned by Atlantic Long Island Properties Corp.

Founded 22 years ago, Above All Storefronts has outgrown its current location, which company president John Cashel said has been holding back the company’s growth. The move to Islip, he said, “Is going to give us the opportunity to expand our business and take us to the next level.”
