I really need to check my spelling.
But I think it is a great idea and will help protect our shoreline.
Lets see if we can get some good comments without personal attacks.

We are a low lying wetland area surrounded by water. One of the things that we learned from Sandy was the water comes up through the floor through hydra static pressure as well as from the rising flood waters. A Sea-Wall would not stop this type of flooding. You would have to fill in and build up on top of the wetlands and I doubt that the powers that be would ever let that happen.

Well it seems the village is in the process of investigating the idea of doing it. Estimated cost 4 to 6 million.
What a waste

They can't build it. They don't own any waterfront property. Can you imagine the way the village would waste that 6million? 1million to poorly build a see wall with the 5 guys from the "highway" dept, and 5million that would mysteriously disappear! I wonder how many millions Gary would take to build up his marina with that money?
A see wall would be a bad idea because it would only trap the water in and not let it flow back.
Point is moot, the village can't build on property they don't own.

i don't even think this is an issue. dec would not allow it, and it would take 20 years to get it done anyway. i don't know much about sea walls so i am not sure if this is a great idea or a dumb one. someone with more experience should explain exactly what a sea wall is and how it would help.

Sea Wall....dumb idea. How about not spending MY tax dollars on your brilliant idea to buy a house near the water. You want to live by the water, nice. you assumed the risk, not me.

the sea wall was a trial balloon. It is DOA. I don't want any tax dollars bailing out waterfront homes, that's their problem.

it is really sad that the village has stated again and again that they are not interested in building on the waterfront and they are against bulkheading. but, they sent a letter to FEMA asking for money to bulkhead (6 million dollars) or to make a sea wall. bulkheading did not save lindenhurst and it contributes to environmental damage.

the village has lied once too often for me. they stated at multiple meetings that they are against bulkheading; but now want money for it? another example of the way they think that mastic beach is their own little oligarchy and they are the only one's with an opinion. they seem to have forgotten that they work for us; not the other way around. now that they are getting salaries, i expect them to act like my employees, not my king.

whether they call it salary or stipend, the result is the same. my tax money is paying for it; and i want information. no more of these closed door meetings and secret agendas. bring it out in the open, or quit.

right.
stay away from where the water goes and you'll be fine.
otherwise, build your house on stilts. problem solved.

how about your tax dollars being wasted on road repair by Gary and his gang and getting fined for the horrible job?
