Southampton Village Urges County Not To Install Sump

Jan 11, 2012 11:52 AM

The DeLalios say their three grandchildren visit frequently, and they are concerned about the roadside rubbish, stagnant water, mosquitoes, rodents that they say a sump would attract.

“For them, it’s just lines on a map,” Mr. DeLalio said of the county officials.

But Mr. Peterman countered, “Right now, it’s an open field, and any garbage that is thrown out by motorists accumulates in the field now.” Garbage at sump bottom, meanwhile, will be screened from view, he said.

The county wants to widen the road....For what purpose? So people can get to the traffic jam at Hampton road faster? Seems like it would be better to spend that money in improving traffic flow on Hampton Road though Watermill rather than widening the road there.

Yes, pushing the bottleneck back helps, even if it is a little. People complained about the original widening and you can't argue its success. Widening from Hampton Rd. thru Water Mill should be next but who knows.

The Mayor is a joke. He let the developers destroy the last farmland on Wickapogue and now he wants to save this little corner. What a joke.

How do you propose the Mayor alone can stop a property owner from developing "as of right" land he owns ?

The Delalio's are going to lose the driveway they installed across the county property, its not the sump. The best thing the county could do is install the fence down the slope of the sump and not at the top, then plant along the top to essentialy hide the sump and fence.

I wonder if his tune would change if he won the bid for the job.
