Dear Neighbors:

Santa visits Asharoken!
At the May 2 Board of Trustees Meeting, Carole Casamassima and Linda Letica were presented proclamations for their outstanding fundraising efforts to help support the Village's annual 4th of July fireworks event.

Carole has been organizing the "Save the Fireworks" committee since 2010 and has raised over $50,000 through raffles sold at the annual Asharoken Holiday Parties. Linda has been organizing the "AVT Shirts" committee since 2013 and has raised funds by offering a line of Asharoken clothing. This year "Save the Fireworks" donated $7,500 and "AVT Shirts" donated $1,000. Together these two donations cover the total cost of the barge and tugboat needed for the fireworks display.

I would like to thank Carole and Linda for their efforts as well as all the residents of Asharoken who have generously supported our Asharoken fireworks tradition. This year our fireworks event will take place on Tuesday, July 4 at approximately 9:15pm, and our rain date will be July 5.

Finally, to all the moms I wish a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you enjoy your special day.

Dear Neighbors:

Tomorrow is Earth Day which began in 1970 as an annual event to celebrate the planet's environment and raise public awareness about pollution. As a seaside community we have benefited greatly over the years as public concern for the environment has resulted in cleaner water and beaches. In the spirit of Earth Day I have two suggestions that we can consider to help make the environment even better.

The Village's single stream recycling program has been a success but I am sure we can do more. I encourage everyone who is not recycling to start as soon as possible and for those who regularly participate to become even more diligent. In March of 2015 the Village partnered with the Town of Smithtown and began Single Stream Recycling, which has benefited the Village in two ways. First, single stream recycling lowers our trash tonnage. Second, there are no tipping fees for our recyclable materials. Click here to view a copy of the recycling guide to help you realize just how much trash can be recycled. All of your recyclables can be comingled in one bin and are picked up every Wednesday.

Additionally pollution of the oceans, especially plastics, is a serious problem. Living by the shore you can help alleviate this problem by occasionally picking up all of the plastic and other trash that washes up on the beach.

We are all very lucky to live in such a wonderful place and everything that we can do as a community to get greener is to everyones benefit.

Wishing you a nice weekend,
Mayor Greg Letica

Enjoy your holiday!

Dear Neighbors:

On Tuesday the Village Board adopted the budget for 2017-2018. The budget has a 0% tax increase and is the second consecutive budget without a tax increase. For the last five years the average annual tax increase has been 1.35%.

This afternoon Deputy Mayor Pierce and I are meeting with Congressman Tom Suozzi and Huntington Supervisor Frank Petrone to commence a unified effort to get the seawall area fixed. Pam and I will be taking the Congressman and Supervisor down to the seawall for a site visit and review the history of the area.

Finally, the Village has received, as of yesterday, 46 enthusiastic responses to Trustee Laura Burke's idea to construct a kayak rack at Village Hall. Trustee Burke will continue working on the proposal based on your interest.

Wishing everyone a great weekend,
Mayor Greg Letica
Message from Trustee Laura Burke:

April 6, 2017

Dear Neighbors:

The Board of Trustees is considering the idea of building a small kayak rack behind Village Hall for the use of our residents. We felt it would be especially nice for those residents who do not have water access. Before we proceed, can you please let us know if you support this idea. We will await your feedback before making a final decision. Please respond to my village email address lburke@asharokenny.org .

Thank you,
Laura Burke
