Patchogue Funding Announced

New York State Senator Thomas Croci has secured a significant amount of money in state capital funding for the Village of Patchogue.

The funding will be used to restore the Patchogue River East jetty located at the Sandspit Park Beach and Marina and represents a collaborative project between the state, town and village.

Senator Croci secured $600,000 in state capital funding for the jetty, as well as $125,000 in funding to be used at the Shorefront Park located nearby.

The Town of Brookhaven and Village of Patchogue are committing the remaining funding needed for the estimated $1 million in total project cost.

“The Patchogue River is primary access into the Village of Patchogue from the bay and the rebuilding of this jetty is critical. Ten years ago, we put almost a million and a half dollars into the dredging of the river and before that fills in again, this has to be repaired,” said Paul Pontieri, the Village of Patchogue Mayor.

The capital grant funding will be administered through the Dormitory Authority of New York State and it is expected that both projects will be commenced and completed in 2016.
