Michael White of Greater Patchogue attended last night’s board meeting in Bellport and got a first hand update:

Bellport Village officials are hopeful the pavilion at the village’s Ho Hum Beach on Fire Island will be ready by summer.

In the meantime, residents are asked to keep off the $240,000, two-story pavilion, which opened to the public in 2015 after the prior pavilion washed away in Sandy.

“It’s not safe,” Bellport Mayor Ray Fell said of the wooden structure, which was built farther back toward the dunes then the prior structure. Fell and the rest of the Village Board circulated an engineers’ report before Monday night’s board meeting.
