    Prior to this Apri 15th storm, I attended the Rye Flood meeting and heard Mayor Otis say that Harrison will not work with Rye regarding the Beaver Swamp Brook and Project Home Run.

    At the Harrison Town Board Meeting two days later, I heard Mayor Malfitano say that Rye would not work with Harrison (See harrison report 4/20/07)in deepening and widening the Beaver Swamp Brook.

    So who's telling the truth?

    Listen, I commend Rye on their Tessier Report, because even those of us on the Harrison side believe that Project Home Run has contributed significantly to the excess flooding. We will do what we need to do to stop this project.

    But in the meantime, we need to get these two communities together immediately, along with Mamaroneck and the Rye Neck Schools, to first clean out the brook and second to do whatever is necessary to deepen and widen it where possible.

    The time for talk is over. We want action.

    And finally, I hope the Rye residents along the Beaver Swamp Brook speak loud and clear at the Rye Meeting on 4/25. We in Harrison will do the same on that same night. It would have been nice if we could have all joined together to go to each others board meeting, but this will do for now.

    If you want to be involved in stopping Project Home Run and getting the brook to flow, contact me at
