Sag Harbor Village Trustees Commit to Comprehensive Drainage Solutions

Last Tuesday, Sag Harbor Village Board of Trustee members Ken O’Donnell and Robby Stein met to discuss hurricane preparedness in the village. A few hours later, the sky opened up and poured over six inches of rain, once again bringing floodwaters to several neighborhoods in Sag Harbor. A week later, a group of Sag Harbor residents approached the village board Tuesday night calling for comprehensive drainage planning in Sag Harbor. This issue has been before the board since Hurricane Sandy and a nor’easter that followed last fall caused thousands of dollars in damage to homes in low lying and flood prone parts of the village.
