Sanders Tours Arverne With Civic Leaders
For months Arverne residents lived with torn up streets as the city installed new sewer systems. Now these same homeowners are up in arms about the conditions the contractors left in their wake: driveway entrances sitting above sidewalk level; sidewalks below street level; and drain openings located in driveways too high to be of any use. These are some of the complaints aired to Councilman James Sanders Jr. on February 25 as he toured Arverne, from Beach 67 to Beach 65 Streets. Residents also showed the councilman streets flooded by rain and high tides and one spot used for fishing that has become a dumping ground for all sorts of debris.
