New Editorial: Peddling and Soliciting in Bellport Village

From The Editor

The Village of Bellport has an existing law governing peddling and soliciting in the Village, Chapter 10, Article 1 of the Village Code. At Monday’s Village Board Meeting, Mayor Fell held a Public Hearing regarding his proposal to rewrite this law. No explanation as to why this law needed rewriting was given other than an ice cream truck had set up shop down at the dock without a permit. There was no explanation as to why the existing law wouldn’t have covered the ice cream truck. In fact, there was very little mention of the existing law at all and what its shortcomings might be. Click here to read the latest Editorial.

The Bellport Village Program Fund (BVPF) is pleased to announce that it is reviving the annual summer 5K race in Bellport. Formerly known as the Clipper Classic, the newly christened Bellport Bay 5K will be staged on Sunday July 12, 2020. There will also be a 1-mile Fun Run for kids of all ages. All proceeds from race registrations and tax-deductible sponsorships, after race-related expenses, will go to benefit the BVPF.

“For years, this road race was a central event in Bellport’s summer, and we are pleased to see that the Bellport Village Program Fund is bringing it back as the Bellport Bay 5K,” said Bellport Village Mayor Ray Fell. “I want to thank the Bellport Village Program Fund and all those who are volunteering in the effort to put on a successful race.”

“By bringing back this race as the Bellport Bay 5K,” said Michael Foster, the BVPF Chairman, “we not only will be putting on a great race for everyone who loves to run, but we also will raise money for our ongoing and new projects in and around Bellport. Our goal is to continue the long tradition established by the Clipper Classic and make this race an annual event on Bellport’s summer calendar.”
