Rocky Point Approves Referendum to put Capital Reserve Projects to Vote

The Rocky Point Board of Education on Monday unanimously approved a referendum to put one proposal for three capital reserve projects up for vote in a public election on Nov. 19.

The estimated project costs include $1,010,000 for the replacement of the grass field with synthetic turf, $680,000 for the reconstruction of the existing track and $300,000 for the reconstruction of instructional laboratories. The projects would be submitted for building aid reimbursement from NYS at approximately 70 percent of the actual project costs. Reimbursement could potentially reduce the net cost to $597,000.

According to state and court records, a Rocky Point man – who police said on Tuesday was arrested for in concert with two other individuals – has been convicted of burglary in the past, and currently stands charged with seven burglary charges across Suffolk County.

Southold Police said on Tuesday that warrants were issued William P. Smith, who reportedly stole over 400 pounds of copper in August from an unnamed Mattituck business.
