Fire Safety Day at Brookhaven Regeneration Camp 36

 On July 15 the Mastic Fire Department visited Brookhaven Town’s ReGeneration Camp at Shirley Airport Park. The children attending, ranging in age from five to twelve years old, learned valuable lessons about fire safety. Firefighters gave the children toy fire helmets, coloring book packets highlighting fire safety and showed them how their firetruck is used to fight fires.

Supervisor Romaine who was onsite to welcome members of the Mastic FD said, “I want to thank the firefighters from the Mastic Fire Department for providing campers with important information about fire safety. These firefighters are true heroes in our local community who remain ever ready to answer the call and keep us safe.”

Town Partners with Long Island Housing Partnership to Provide Affordable Housing 145

 On August 27th, Brookhaven Town, working in conjunction with the Long Island Housing Partnership (LIHP), conducted a lottery at Brookhaven Town Hall to select 20 applicants who will be provided with an opportunity to purchase new, affordable condominiums at Country Pointe Meadows in Yaphank. These homes are offered for sale to eligible households that earn 80 percent or less of the area median income and will feature two bedrooms and one bath.

Supervisor Edward P. Romaine said, “I want to thank the Long Island Housing Partnership and Beechwood Yaphank LLC for working with the us to help make the dream of home ownership a reality. Brookhaven Town code ensures all housing developments must have at least 10 percent of its units dedicated to providing workforce or affordable housing, and this makes it easier for hard working families to remain on Long Island.”
