After about eight months of lobbying from Bellport Village, the Suffolk County Department of Public Works has agreed to dredge around the docks at Ho-Hum Beach on Fire Island.

“It’s shallow, and we want to make it a little deeper, that’s the main thing,” said Bellport Village Mayor Ray Fell.

Fell said there aren’t any navigational issues, “but at certain times, all the sand from the bottom is coming up” as the boats attempt to move in and out of the area, which includes space for private boats and a ferry landing.

For its part, the Bellport Village Board is required to allow the county to dump the sand taken from the bay on the ocean side of the dune’s, Fell informed the public during Monday night’s board meeting.
