The proposal was originally presented at a public hearing last year, but was not voted on by the Legislature due to concern it was not clearly expressed this would come at no cost to the taxpayer. These improvements will be paid for using Sewer District Serial Bonds and a grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, with contributions from the developer of the Ronkonkoma Hub. The expansion of the Southwest Sewer District will provide sewage treatment to previously un-sewered areas, creating a favorable ecological and economic impact to the County, and allowing for the construction of an asset within the District that has the ability to generate revenue and future cost savings to District rate payers.
This hearing is critical to the redevelopment of the Ronkonkoma Hub. The County Legislature is deciding on the appropriations for the pump station.
This issue has recently become "political" and if the appropriations are not approved, then the entire project is at risk. The project requires proper sewering to move forward.
It would be helpful if community members in favor of project attend the hearing and state their support of the project and relay how important it is to redevelop the blighted area around the train station.
Many of you know Emma Bruno through her varied community and civic involvements. She had been a steadfast pillar of the Lake Ronkonkoma community for most of her life. Emma's generosity through philanthropy and volunteerism was known by many. She was honored by the Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization in 2006 as our Citizen of the Year (see photo below).
Emma Bruno had been an active member of the Lake Ronkonkoma Homemakers Club, the Friends of Sachem Public Library Club, the Lake Ronkonkoma Senior Citizen Club, the Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society and the Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization. She was an avid gardener and was known to share her vast knowledge of Lake Ronkonkoma history with anyone who was interested. Mrs. Bruno’s husband, Louis, passed away in 1991.
