What's Going on? The Ferry Hike Fiasco

In February 2023, North Ferry’s general manager advised the Supervisor that his company was petitioning the County for a fare hike.

On April 14, 2023, the County’s Budget Review Office had found that “...the requested fare increases to have merit.”

Neither the Supervisor nor any Town Board member informed the public about the proposed increase until the April 26 Work Session at which time the Supervisor recommended that the Ferry Study Group get involved.

On May 2, the County approved the increase.

Oddly enough, on that same day, the Deputy Supervisor had complained that she felt that Shelter Island didn’t have any input on the increase until the County had acted and that should change.

Who lost this opportunity for all of us to have input on this ferry increase?


Its time for a change!
