A Productive General Meeting for the 18th Legislative District

Legislator Spencer Speaks at Press Conference Announcing Lawsuit Against EPA

Suffolk County, NY – Legislator William R. Spencer was happy to report back on Tuesday evening’s Suffolk County General Meeting, “We had a productive meeting and passed a number of important bills that will make a difference in our district.  Our accomplishments are the direct result of collaborative efforts with the community.” 

Highlights of the meeting include: 

  • Appropriating funds for license plate readers to be utilized in the 2nd Police Precinct. The devices will assist officers in criminal investigations and help keep the community safe.  They will also work in coordination with other programs such as Silver and Amber alerts. 
  • Passed legislation for downtown revitalization monies to be appropriated for projects in Cold Spring Harbor and Greenlawn. Cold Spring Harbor will be receiving a warning system at a busy crosswalk and Greenlawn will be receiving funding for antique lighting fixtures and brickwork along Broadway between Pulaski Rd and Wyckoff Street.
  • Passed legislation for the county to join the lawsuit, initiated by the State, against the EPA for allowing the dumping of dredge materials in the Long Island Sound. This lawsuit is a fight against the EPA's decision to risk the quality of our waters to advance cheap and ill-conceived solutions to manage the disposal of dredged materials without careful consideration of viable alternatives. This would be a 3rd dump site and will only add to the existing threats to our marine life, recreational activities and our commerce. 

Each resolution received bi-partisan support of the 18 member Legislature. For more information regarding these important projects,  please contact Legislator William Spencer at
