Dear Neighbors:

I am pleased to report that the Village's own Matt Davies was honored as "Best Editorial Cartoonist in 2022" by the National Cartoonists Society. Matt's exceptional work can be seen daily in Newsday.

What makes this award even more special is that the plaque that is awarded was designed by Rube Goldberg. Rube, who lived in Asharoken for many years, was a noted inventor, cartoonist and sculptor. In 1953 Goldberg created a cover design for a historical pamphlet which featured an Indian. This design was later adopted by the Village for its logo that is on the police cars, stationery and a few other places. Additionally, he was known for coming up with crazy contraptions which led to the saying that something that was jerry-rigged was a "Rube Golberg."

Please remember that Village Code requires that if you walk your dog on the street or the beach you are required to clean up solid waste. It is courteous to your neighbors and good for the environment to clean up after man's best friend. Please also remember that your dog must be on a leash at all times. Thanks so much for your cooperation.

Wishing you a great day and a nice weekend,
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica

Dear Neighbors:

Below you will find details about responding to a survey which will help Asharoken secure money from the NYS Environmental Bond Act to reconstruct the seawall area. There is a link to the online survey as well as suggested answers. Please take a few minutes to fill it out. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this.

In an effort to keep you informed of what has gone on in the Village in the last month, here is a copy of my Mayor's report from the September 5th Board of Trustees meeting:
The Village will be doing a cutback of the marsh grass along the shoulder of Bevin road early next week.

A couple on interesting environmental things to report. I went for a swim yesterday and I could not believe how warm the water was. So, I grabbed thermometer from the house and discovered that the water was 83 degrees. I really can't remember a time when the water was that warm.

Additionally, the bird of the week is a Green Heron. For the last several days it has been hanging out in the wetlands by the Bevin Road sluice. I have attached a google photo of a Green Heron for your enjoyment.

Have a great weekend,
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica

Dear residents,

Assemblyman Keith Brown is trying to obtain funds for the Asharoken Seawall through the NY State Environmental Bond Act. In order to improve Asharoken's chances of being awarded money, we are asking you to respond to a New York State online survey. Click here to view and complete the survey.

In an effort to make completing the survey as easy as possible, below are the recommended answers to all questions. It is very important that as many people as possible fill out and submit the survey. The more responses we submit, the better our chances are of securing funding.

Thank you for your help, it is very much appreciated,
Mayor Greg Letica
  • General Feedback: The 30-year-old seawall protecting Asharoken Avenue, at the intersection of Bevin Road and Asharoken Avenue, has deteriorated to the point that it no longer safeguards the road from flooding and possible destruction during storms. Asharoken Avenue is the only access to Eatons Neck, home to approximately 2,000 residents. In this era of sea level rise and stronger storms, it is critical that the wall is rebuilt and the dune seaward of it restored to provide the coastal resiliency needed to prevent the loss of this critical road.
  • Project Title: Asharoken Seawall and Dune Reconstruction
  • Project Location: Bevin Rd and Asharoken Ave
  • Project Lead: Town of Huntington and Village Of Asharoken
  • Disadvantaged: No
  • General Location: At intersection of Asharoken Avenue and Bevin Road in the Village of Asharoken
  • Project Lead: Town of Huntington, Village of Asharoken
  • Intent: To reconstruct the seawall and dune protecting Asharoken Avenue from flooding and destruction during storms
  • Phase: Planning

Dear Neighbors:

Linda and I would like to wish everyone a very happy Labor Day weekend. As always, the summer seems to have flown by in the blink of an eye. The good news is that we can look forward to September which is probably the best month of the year in Asharoken.

I would like to remind you that schools open next week. Please use extra caution on the roads as school kids will be waiting on the side of the street to be picked up. Also, please remember to never pass a stopped school bus on either side of the street.

I hope you had a chance to see the super blue moon rising over Crab Meadow just north of the stacks this week. It was an amazing sight. There was a nice picture of it in Newsday. I have a new puppy and when I took him out for his 2am walk the illumination of the moon was close to daylight, really cool.

Enjoy your long weekend!
Mayor Dr. Gregory Letica
