Incorporated Village of Bellport, NY Announcements & Notices
HO-HUM BEACH UPDATE
The Mayor and Trustees of Bellport Village today announced that lifeguards will be on duty at Ho-Hum Beach beginning Friday, July 24th.
After our lifeguards resigned on Friday, the Village began investigating alternatives for lifeguard services at Ho-Hum Beach including, but not limited to, rehiring our lifeguards who had resigned. An agreement has been reached with the Tow of Brookhaven for lifeguard services, and Ho-Hum Beach will be open and fully staffed with Town lifeguards for the rest of the season.
Mayor Raymond Fell stated: “We are very pleased with the resolution of the crisis caused by the existing lifeguards resigning. The primary concern of the Trustees was not to compromise the safety of our residents at the beach, and we have found an appropriate solution.”
FOR YOUR INFORMATION
We have recently been made aware of a increase in car larcenies in surrounding communities. Unlocked cars have been ransacked and items of value were stolen. We urge residents to lock cars and remove valuables to deter a would be thief.

2015 Resident I.D. Cards
If your Village Resident ID card has the year 2015, it is valid through the end of this year.
If you need to renew your ID card, come down to Village Hall to get a valid I.D. card for this year.
After discussing the rebuilding of the gazebo with several construction firms, the Board of Trustees has decided to begin this project in the fall. We plan to recommence the bidding process towards the end of August 2015.
Ho Hum Beach Update:
Ho Hum Beach will be open for the start of the season on Saturday, May 23rd. The beach will be open on weekends only until the summer season begins on June 27th. Construction on the pavilion is continuing at this time; however, an alternate path to the beach is available until all work is finished.
Thank you for your understanding.
