Islip Town Begins to Fill Potholes









Town of Islip Highway crews were out in full force in the Brentwood community earlier this week, specifically on Pine Aire Drive, where they filled hundreds of potholes from Fifth Avenue to the Brentwood Train Station that were caused by the exceptionally harsh winter weather. Islip Town Councilman John Cochrane, Jr., met with highway crews during the operation to assess the damage and repair work, and thanked each for a job well done. Plans are underway for the complete reconstruction and resurfacing of Pine Aire in coming months, which will be made possible thanks to pending grant that has been secured by New York State Senator Phil Boyle.  Town crews are out in almost every hamlet to make our roads safe.  Residents may call to report a pothole at 224-5600.


Islip, NY – Islip Town Councilman John C. Cochrane, Jr., was recently joined by Receiver of Taxes Alexis Weik in presenting West Islip High School Senior Brooke DiPalma with an official Town of Islip Proclamation, which declared Friday, February 14th, P.S. I LOVE YOU DAY, in the Town. The movement was established by DiPalma, after her father’s suicide in April, 2010. On that day, DiPalma encourages people, especially students, to wear purple, to show their support against bullying and identifying and combating depression, with the ultimate goal of suicide prevention.

Demolition of Long-time East Islip Blighted Structure Planned

Islip, NY - Islip Town Board members are continuing their staunch commitment to more aggressive and vigilant code enforcement practices, most recently with the unanimous approval of a resolution that sets in motion proceedings to demolish a property located at 96 Claridge Lane in East Islip, which has been deemed “vacant, unsecure, dangerous, unsafe, damaged, decayed, hazardous and a public nuisance,” by Law Enforcement officials.
The property is the site of an abandoned construction project, and has remained in this state for more than five years, despite the Town’s numerous attempts to combat the blight through the issuance of 22 violations of Town Code to the property owner, Marcos D. Contreras. The dwelling contains an unfinished multilevel structure, construction litter and debris, and an unsecure pool.
