Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent John Rouse spoke at Monday's Sound Beach Civic meeting and addressed concerns residents had about roads in the hamlet.
Rouse touched on topics such a snow removal, paving and road repair, among others. Problems with roads and erosion near the sound by Shore Drive and Amagansett Drive was discussed. Plans for a bulkhead and other work in the area have been delayed due to violations handed down by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Lori Baldassare, Rouse's consultant, has worked with that specific area.
"We can not move forward until we get DEC permits and we have to design the project in a way that will be accepted by the DEC," she said at the meeting. "Once DEC gets plans to accept it could take up to six months to get the permit, once we get the permit then we can give a timeline on the project."
Another resident mentioned snow removal issues near Port Jefferson Road, and other issues were touched upon. For full video of the meeting, click here and watch it on CivicMeetings.com.
