Hampton Bays Civic Association president Bruce King recently wrote a letter to Newsday mentioning that despite talks with Long Island Railroad officials last year, construction supplies, including steel rails, wooden and concrete railroad ties and stones, are still sitting at the Hampton Bays Train station even though the project they were meant for has long been completed.
In her Watchdog column in Newsday, columnist Judy Cartwright says she contacted the LIRR and was told that they are "committed to maintaining a clean right of way for our customers and neighboring communities" but "its storage facilities are limited so on occasion materials are left at a work site."
Cartwright reports that the LIRR said that some of the materials left at the Hampton Bays station can and will be removed in the near future.
The railroad station is just one area that the Hampton Bays Civic Association plans to address this year. In an e-mail to Patch, King said that in 2012, the civic association also hopes to work to work with the community to become more visible, sponsor a career day at Hampton Bays schools, help to control Hampton Bays density through Code Enforcement, advocate the purchase of Hampton Bays property through the town's community preservation fund, increase the civic's membership and encourage active involvement of HBCA membership.
