LONG LAKE — The Town of Long Lake announces free WiFi hotspots now active and open at the Long Lake Town Beach, the Long Lake Ball Field, Long Lake Town Hall and Mt. Sabattis Pavilion. Free WiFi, provided by SLIC, will also soon be available at the Long Lake Town Dock. These WiFi hotspots will be on 24 hours a day.

Town Supervisor Clark Seaman worked closely with SLIC to ensure that Wi-Fi was delivered at no cost to the town as part of a lease franchise arrangement made with SLIC. "We want to offer this convenience to our residents and visitors and we are excited to be a part of the growing trend to provide this service and make Long Lake a great destination and the best place to live in the Adirondacks," said Supervisor Seaman. 

Alexandra Roalsvig, Long Lake Director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism states, "Adding the WiFi to public spaces will make it so much more convenient for visitors and residents. While we enjoy the slower pace of life, we also recognize people are busy and need to be connected even when on vacation. We hope our visitors can extend their stays by making it easy and accessible to check into work while staying in Long Lake. International visitors can avoid expensive roaming charges and paddlers on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail can connect at the beach and not even get out of their boat."

The WiFi hotspots are operating 24 hours a day in time for the Great Adirondack Garage Sale May 27 to 29. WiFi hotspots are available at the Long Lake Town Beach, 1258 Main St.; the Long Lake Town Hall, 1204 Main St.; the Long Lake Ball Field at 1167 Main St.; and Mt. Sabattis Pavilion at 6 Pavilion Way. A hot spot will also be added at the Long Lake Municipal Town Dock.
