Michael White of Greater Patchogue interviewed Bellport Mayor Ray Fell this morning and has some great news:

In time for Memorial Day weekend, Bellport Village Mayor Ray Fell has just gotten word that the pavilion at Ho-Hum Beach on Fire Island can reopen to residents.

“We just got the letter,” from Nelson & Pope Engineers, Fell told GreaterPatchogue Wednesday morning.

The letter references the engineers’ May 3 visit to the village’s pavilion, and indicates the inspection revealed “sufficient sand” of 10 feet above the structure’s pilings to reopen it, Fell said.

The mayor called the development great news for Bellporters.
