Sand & Salt Shed Construction
NY State Senator Tom Croci visited the Bellport Village Department of Public Works on November 24, 2015. He is pictured above with Mayor Ray Fell as they inspect the progress of the construction of a Salt and Sand Shed. The Senator awarded the Village $93,800 to build the shed and for road repairs.
