Dredge the Canal

This petition had 132 supporters


For my neighbors, the residents on South Bay Drive and Little East Neck Road South that share this canal. 

My name is Brian Doherty, my family and I live on South Bay Drive. We along with you suffered the wrath of Hurricane / Super Storm Sandy. The canal has not been the same since this storm. It has become shallow with all the sand and muck that washed up during the storm. My family and I put our boat at a marina because we cannot use it on low or slack tide because of this. Many of you have had your bulkheads rebuilt and I am sure had the same thought. How long before the Town of Babylon dredges this canal?  

In December of 2016 Steve Bellone announced a $2.1M budget to dredge the town of Babylon waterways but no map or schedule is shown on his website. We are a community of 58 homes that pay taxes for the canal privilidge. This year marks the five year anniversary. We have paid over $4 million dollars in tax collectivley. This is more than enough money to spend a few days dredging our canal. 

The time is now. It has been five years and nothing has been done.  

Please voice your opinion and sign this petition.  My next step is to meet with Suffolk County Executives and News 12. 

Together we can make this happen !
