Construction crew may have followed dangerous practices

Come on guys and gals open your eyes. He is low bidder on this project, so the town hires him. Not a shocker. So now to make some extra money on this project
he decides to bury the stumps to make up the difference on his extremely low bid.
As far as most of the people i know Mr Grimes does not sub any of this kind of work, and in fact his younger son does most of his excavation work. You mean to tell me he didnt know B.S. He should have been kicked off the job by now. And good luck to anybody who had this guy do work you in the past, maybe you will have a hole for a swimming pool soon.........for free.

Oddone trial to start Tuesday

When I heard about this horrific act, it really upset me. My deepest sympathy goes out to his entire family because this man was taken away at such a young age, and was loved by so many. I didnt know him, but what I read he really sounded like a awesome guy, who made friends with anybody he came into contact with. On a different note, I dont understand why no one was able to stop this from happening. If i was there I would have jumped in to stop this moron. Shame on whoever watched this unfold in front of them, you could have made a difference. As for Oddone that bastard deserves everything he gets and some. Hope he likes prison!!!!!

East Hampton GOP announces financial action plan

very well said truthinbonac. What I dont understand completely is how it is possible to not hire for vacant positions. I agree with a hiring freeze but it has to be with some exceptions. You cant keep losing people and not replacing them. As with highway dept they are already down 20% of their workforce, how do you expect them to do the job the way it needs to be done. You look at the sanitation department they lost a handful of people and nobody has been replaced. you cant expect the home exchange area open without more help, and besides that with or without home exchange they are short manpower. I guess my point is, this is now becoming a safety issue and someone is going to get hurt. By hiring a couple of guys here or there where thay are really needed ok, but no more of these make believe jobs that were mysteriously created in the past few years. Those are the jobs that need to be looked at. " Sep 30, 09 9:39 PM

East Hampton Town Board discusses staff cuts in closed session

It sure is good to hear that they are finally starting to look at this huge problem. The McGintee regime hired way too many people just because he or she knew somebody. Time to start cutting heavily with all these un-necessary jobs that were made up. Starting with the supervisors assistant is a great idea. Time to start giving help were it is truly needed " Oct 14, 09 1:25 PM

Army Corps Will Not Extend Montauk Emergency Repair To Ditch Plains

the bottom line is that we are trying to stop mother nature.......not going to happen. You might be able to deter her for a while but that is it. The motels will eventually be washed away with a big storm. I think all the ideas mentioned by the professionals are just temporary ideas. The real solution is to move the hotels."

Closing Of Sand Land's Solid Waste Processing Predicted To Affect Local Landscapers

Former Employee Challenging Gregor In Southampton Town Highway Department Race

Don't comment on here to often but it sure seems like Alex has rubbed alot of people the wrong way. I don't live in the town but reading all of these comments it sure seems like Gregor has alot to worry about. He shouldn't feel like such a shoe-inn. Lastly I do believe there is a bit of bitterness coming from Aldrich but who wouldn't. He has plenty of experience in the Highway Department, Hope he wins!!!!!!" Oct 20, 17 6:12 PM
