Thanks to Councilman Rick Corley’s intercession, work on the new playground has restarted in earnest. DPW Director Mathew Solitro has indicated to the Councilman that the playground will be completed by the end of the month.

A newly-resurfaced, rock lined gravel path now provides secure and even footing from the mainland to the breakwater.
Two large culverts have replaced the damaged and displaced footbridge near the breakwater.
During very hight tides, as occurred in late morning on September 2nd, most of

Therefore, caution must still be exercised, especially when crossing with small
