Town Approves Bids For Sandy Repair Work

Babylon allocates $3.5 million to fix beaches and recreational facilities damaged by hurricane.

With the goal of having beaches and town parks operational by Memorial Day, the Babylon Town Board approved contracts to several Long Island companies to repair areas damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

According to Newsday, the initial contracts total $3.5 million and are part of an overall $22.5 million plan to repair recreational facilities across the Town.

Palace Electrical Contractors of Wantagh ($1.19 million), Rockmore Contracting of Ronkonkoma ($1.17 million) and Bancker Construction of Islandia ($225,000) each will work to fix facilities at Cedar Beach Marina, Overlook Beach and Venetian Shores.

In addition, Bohemia-based J. Anthony Enterprises ($788,107) will repair the fishing piers at Tanner Park and Copiague-based LEB Electric ($91,900) will be charged with repairing Tanner’s electrical system.

Previously, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez told Patch that bids for Sandy-related repair work will include a requirement that projects be completed by Memorial Day weekend.

"Our goal as a municipality is to have our facilities open by Memorial Day weekend," Martinez said.
