Southampton Village Trustee Bill Hattrick envisions adding to the enjoyment of Dune Beach — the village's only resident-only beach — with a bigger deck that will be more suited for special events.
Hattrick said at the Aug. 9 Village Board meeting that he wants the village to build a new deck that is double the size of what is there now, and raise it. He also suggested a canopy for beachgoers to get out of the sun.
“I think it will add to the enjoyment down there,” he said, nothing that residents have events at the beach such as weddings.
To pay for the materials for the project, Hattrick said the village can seek a donor, who will be recognized by a plaque on the new deck.
Hattrick said he would like to see the village's own workers complete the deck, rather than hiring a private company to do the job. He said village workers are good craftsman and it will be a point of pride for them to have a hand in such a visible project.
