Jack Nix Sworn in as South Country Board of Education Vice President 253

During the March 27th Board of Education meeting, South Country Central School District trustees unanimously voted for Jack Nix to take on the position of Board Vice President. Mr. Nix replaces former vice president Regina Hunt, who announced her resignation from the board of education earlier in the month due to residency changes.

Mr. Nix, who was elected to the board of education in May 2017, graduated from the district in 2012. He holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and political science from St. Joseph’s College. Mr. Nix currently serves on the board of education’s strategic planning and health and safety committees.

Mr. Nix thanked his fellow trustees upon being sworn in by district clerk Christine Flynn. “I am looking forward to working closely with President Felice,” he said. “I also want to thank Regina Hunt, who was my mentor.”

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.”

2019 Hurricane Survival Guide – Be Prepared! 130

Hurricane season is here, and Supervisor Ed Romaine reminds residents that the 2019 Hurricane Survival Guide is now available on the Town’s website at www.BrookhavenNY.gov.

The guide is designed to help residents prepare for a hurricane and other severe weather incidents. It covers preparations and procedures for virtually every hurricane scenario and includes hurricane surge maps which are useful in understanding how different areas might be impacted by hurricanes of varying intensities.  There are also important phone numbers, lists, tips, a Family Disaster Supplies Kit check list, and tear sheets for use at home and at work.

“Brookhaven Town has many miles of coastline, which makes us vulnerable to hurricanes and other severe weather conditions,” said Supervisor Romaine. “Residents need to be informed and prepared to keep their family and property safe. I encourage everyone to take the time to read the guide and take action now.”
