Supervisor Romaine Encourages Shoppers to Support Small Business Saturday on November 24th 304

Town of Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine is asking that Brookhaven residents participate in Small Business Saturday on November 24 by shopping at local small businesses across Brookhaven Town. The Chambers of Commerce are joining together to support this initiative which was founded in 2010 by American Express in partnership with the non-profit National Trust for Historic Preservation, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and Roslindale Village Main Street.  

It is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Many of the local businesses in Brookhaven Town are having special sales and promotions to celebrate the event.

Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “Small, local businesses are the backbone of our economy in Brookhaven Town and throughout the country. I encourage everyone to take a break from online shopping, the big boxes and the mall to shop in the stores that are owned by your neighbors. It’s important that we support these businesses that serve our community and create thousands of jobs for our residents.”

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.”
