Brookhaven Town plans to remove appliances and other household items from 14 vacant Mastic Beach homes and donate the goods to Suffolk County’s Habitat for Humanity.
Supervisor Edward P. Romaine is scheduled to make the announcement today at an 11 a.m. news conference at 215 Elm Rd. in Mastic Beach Village.
Refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners, appliances, boilers and oil burners will be taken from the vacant homes and given to the Habitat warehouse in Ronkonkoma, town officials said.
Brookhaven Town acquired the village homes, which will eventually be demolished and used for open space, from New York Rising because the properties are in a flood zone, officials said.
