Some roads in Greenport are getting fixed.

That was the message from the Greenport Village Board at last Thursday’s meeting, where it was announced that roughly $250,000 worth of repairs to four local roadways — Flint, Brown and Clark streets and Central Avenue — are set to begin June 1.

And the village doesn’t plan to stop there.

A $10,000 study is also in the works to examine all village roads and sidewalks and come up with a long-term plan to fix the damaged ones.

“This gives us a better picture of the long range,” said Mr. Hubbard, adding that the work for June is on schedule and that more paving should take place in the fall.

“I’m hoping we’re going to think long-term and not band-aids,” added Trustee Doug Roberts.

Trustee Mary Bess Phillips suggested the study also look into sewer and drainage issues on village roads.
