Stout Asks Boaters To Cut Speeding In Moriche s Creeks A letter is presently being- dis- tiiouted to boaters in the Mori- ches bay area irom brookhaven town fcupe. visor August Stout , Ji., requesting the help of locai boat owners in cutting down speeding in town creeKs. Tho supervisor said in the let.er tha. speeding in the several oe:ks which flow into the Great South Bay presents a hazard to salet > an i also contribute^ to a moro irequj nt need for dredging. Tne te.ter leads as lo.lows : \Dear Neighbor: \Your he ' p is needed , to slow down the boa ts that speed in oui Hrookhaven Town creeks. This is ev rybody ' s job. \As Supervisor , I can request che Sdfio k Coanty Policj bo.it to stop and issue summonses to al! violators , whether th v y have in- board or outboard motors , if the> speed and cause a big wake from their boats. But we all know the po.iee boat can 't be everywhere ; and we also know that it s fun to cause a big wave to hit the shore or bulkhead and s\e it sp lash , and lock the boats along the shore. \How.ve. - , this is expeisivc fun. While the dred ging of Senix Creek was comp leted last year , and I hav« hopes that the Orchard Neck Creek dredging project will be comp leted shortl y, these creeks cannot be dredged every few years. \Speeding boats are not onl y dangerous to fellow yachtsmen ; they cause channe ' s to fill in. When a wave from a speeding boat hits a bulkhead or the shore, its back-wash pulls sand and mud to the center of the creek. This makes more dredging needed , more often. \Our Town has a lot of creeks and any dredging needed , that is done shou 'd be spread around , rot done over again at the same creek unnecessarily. \These are your creeks and your channels , and it is your tax money that would pay for unneces- sary dredging. (And , incidentall y, I have noticed that the speeding is not always done by youn g peop le. The senior yachtsmen too should be reminded of the effects of their speeding.) \Will you do your part in a town-wide polite policing project, by reminding your friends and neighbors to slow down and pro- tect, not onl y lives , but also our cieeks and waterways ? Everyone stands to gain by our efforts to slow down the speeders. \ William Floyd Parkway Bids Will Be Opened August 24 Plan Fire Island Inlet Bridge: Bids on the construction of William Floyd Parkway will be opened by the State Department of Public Works August 24 in Albany.
