Emergency Shelter Nears Completion

Posted on 26 September 2008

The hurricane season may soon be coming to an end, but next year it appears that all things are “go” for the emergency shelter at Pierson High School – the designated shelter for Sag Harbor Village residents.


Last Thursday, New York State Department of Education, after seven months of consideration, finally approved plans for the hook-up of a generator the village purchased roughly a year ago to provide power at the school in the event of an emergency. School district officials were tasked with paying for and establishing a hook-up for the generator, with the village agreeing to purchase the machine.


“It takes nine months to have a baby, and seven months for this,” said Sag Harbor School District Business Manager Len Bernard on Thursday of the process the school has gone through in trying to get approval for the hookup from the state department of education.


“It’s been a long time coming,” Sag Harbor Mayor Greg Ferraris said. “And we appreciate all the efforts by Len Bernard and Chief [Tom] Fabiano in response to this.”
