Referencing the WPA, an article in the Dec. 25, 1936 issue of Sayville’s Suffolk County News stated: “Various projects have been completed … and other projects, such as the storm sewer job on Greene avenue and Main street, Sayville, are now in progress.”
Such previous work was completed “on Edwards street and Erwin street … and in the vicinity of those streets,” a project for which $24,765.12 was allocated.
