Sandpebble To Be Awarded More Than $750,000 In East Hampton School District Lawsuit

Sandpebble case should NEVER gotten so out of control. BOE and others should were fools not addressing the merits of the dispute upfront. They failed the district. Enough said. Time to move on." May 30, 16 6:57 PM

Cap Slows Increase Of School Administrators' Salaries Statewide, And Locally

Cuomo should be congratulated for beginning the process of controlling school budgets. The pork barrel at top is still absurd. Amagansett UFSD has a superintendent and a principal for a very small student population. The money wasted there could easily be reallocated or cut. More needs to be done. All these salary shennigans are fluff. School boards need to more proactive in addressing these absurd salaries and ALL the benefits buried in the fine print. In addition, unfunded pension liabilities loom everywhere in a flat economy." Sep 16, 16 9:28 AM

East Hampton Looking At $8.5 Mil New Town Hall 'Campus'

A lot of moving pieces here. $500/sqft dream building will cost more. Past performance of Town Building Construction projects is dismal. Condos failed to even to get a minimum bid of $3 million in 2012. Old water treatment plant is not high value.

Time to sell Bluff Road. Monetize all extraneousTown properties...build the new Town Complex, but also fund unfunded liabilities and pay down Town debt from McGintee fiasco!" Sep 21, 16 8:43 AM

UPDATE: East Hampton Town Lifts Parking Restriction After Snow Storm

What is an urban renewal road? If it is private, why are taxpayers paying to plow it? If it is for emergency vehicles, then send the property owners a bill?

In case of an emergency, Mr. Cantwell has authorized clearing of private roads—otherwise know as urban renewal roads—to allow access for emergency vehicles. " Jan 9, 17 7:27 AM

Critics Take Aim At Offshore Turbine Plans

This article is a joke...noise about turbines 50 miles away...get real....fish larvae from platform and cable laying...another joke...get some real science...this total bs. Write real analysis of energy sources and implementation, not some mindless dribble about 50 miles away noise and larvae in less than .0001% of sea floor in area....Larry Penny is no expert on platform noise, except reporters seem to quote him every time he opens his mouth.."

Progress Made On Plan To Link Buses, Shuttles

Another useless government scenario on alleviating congestion. How much did they spend on this enlighten idea. Time to think outside the box...replace or augment the rail line with a new roadway! " Jan 31, 17 11:55 AM

State Poised To Strip Local Authority Over Uber; East Hampton Official Warns Of 'Chaos In Montauk'

The current taxi situation is a joke on the summer weekends.

Currently, kids going out are get ripped off or worst skipping taxis altogether because of the absurd prices. Usually when they avoid the taxis, they are hitching rides or walking home at 3 or 4 in the morning

UBER's return should help the taxi market be better, cheaper and safer.
Their technology alone is reason to hope the state succeeds.

Additional South Fork Train Service Plans Near Finalization

About time. This was a no-brainer.

Probably better if they just took train out and made tracks a new highway through Hamptons. " Apr 12, 17 2:16 PM

East Hampton Boasts $6 Million Surplus In 2016

Bravo Mr. Bernard!

Unfunded liabilities still a major issue. What is that number today?

Tax cut in the cards?

East Hampton Hamlet Study Presentations Lined Up For Next Month

Scary stuff..."help it create the legal conditions to allow smarter redevelopment over the next 40 to 50 years."

Given the "master plan" developed years ago by a select few in the dark days of winter, people should pay close attention to more "consultants" deciding the future.

Uber Could Be Rolling By Fourth Of July Weekend

50,000 drivers, July 1 start, etc is all good, particularly if it saves lives.
State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. clueless.

Town To Give Montauk Playhouse Another $3 Million Boost

I love the fact the article states the Town is funding the project. Who's funding the Town?

Why don't you just say the Town has earmarked $3 million of taxpayer money to support this project." Jun 14, 17 8:44 AM

Montauk Bus Successful, But Return Engagement In Question

Average 350 riders a day for 60 days for a cost of $100,000 is about $5 per ride. Pretty good deal all around. I doubt the train can match, but lets hope!" Aug 4, 17 11:42 AM

Year-Long Trestle Replacement Work In East Hampton Will Begin Next Month

$19 million for an eyesore. Waste of money. Fix other problems first.

Stop trucks with lights, cameras, ball chains etc before wasting money on a lousy fix. There is enough current technology to address this problem.

Regrading, building concrete retaining walls etc is just absurd for 3 feet of elevation - $6 million per foot. Assuming 10 trucks a year hit every year, at $19 million the LIRR can spend $95,000 an incident for next 20 years.

Work the problem instead of wasting money and ruining village landscape." Sep 20, 17 7:15 AM
