“It’s certainly a thrill for the Town to be nominated for an Emmy Award,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “The Town is fortunate to have the DEC keeping a close watch on the fish population of Manhasset Bay.

The ride along with the DEC gives viewers a real bird’s eye view of how the DEC does their work.”
