A Brookhaven Highway Department salt storage building in Miller Place collapsed under the weight of snow and ice Thursday evening, according to Brookhaven Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro. 

Losquadro, in announcing the news on his Facebook page, said no one was hurt when the building's roof collapsed just before dark, but he said the incident "will pose a significant challenge logistically for the remainder of the snow season." 

"I have already been in touch with the NYS DOT and the Suffolk County DPW to make short term and long term arrangements to ensure my crews have an adequate supply of material for that section of the town," Losquadro said on Facebook. "Aging infrastructure throughout the Highway Department that I inherited when I came into office will be a challenge for me for some time."

This was the first of TWO TOWN 'FIRES', OF LATE...I GUESS IT'S CHEAPER TO TORCH IT, THAN REPAIR OR UPDATE IT...CLASSIC INSURANCE SCAM 101 ! BETWEEN DANNY BOY [who happens to be a 'former' INSURANCE ACTUARY] AND HIS BROTHER STEVEN, YOU THINK THEY CAN FIND ONE CONVICT ON THE HIGHWAY DEPT. WHO KNOWS HOW TO ACCIDENTALLY 'BREAK' THINGS FOR MOOLA ?

Not to mention the drug den that has operated out of the hole of a department since the Powell days.... Our roads are disgusting, filth, piles of trash, potholes and over paying the connected for plowing. Fraud everyday on timesheets.....we need the Fed here again to wake them up since the Davis Peach Farm subdivision took the crooks down that stole every day....Dragone...Lamura.....all of them.

PATCHOGUE SNOOP, The Losqaudro FamilY and the Colucci Mafia are still so entrenched in this area, and the STINK of John Powell still rules in this Town...you can put on a tie and suit, and it doesn't matter. When DAN LOSQUADRO opened his campaign office at 25A and Radio Avenue, this last time, it looked like one of those surveillance tapes, out of the Gotti trial ! But it was diverse, I have to admit, as there was ONE black TOWN HWY DEPT. STEROID JOB, with campaign signs...I guess it's changing with the times here, in Crookhaven !
