Southampton Town Councilman Says Legal Action Could Be In Rumba's Future

Good idea, why don't we start with Rumba terbear?! LOL

Which laws are the Town Board and Trustees not following Terri?

You are great about throwing out insinuations but not too great with having your facts straight." Aug 24, 12 8:24 PM

Sorry Terbear, it was always a private road which is why it was an unimproved road.

So you assert, no matter how many people state otherwise, that Ed Warner is the only person who has a problem? Sorry, I know that isn't true. Not to mention, if there wasn't a problem, why would they complain? Just to give themselves something to do? " Aug 24, 12 8:26 PM

Where did you read/hear that violence was tolerated?
" Aug 24, 12 8:28 PM

Yes it has been a restaurant for over a decade. But it hasn't been in violation of the law for over a decade. If he weren't in violation of the law, he wouldn't be "getting it".

Laws apply to everyone.

Wow you really have a problem with the Warners don't you.
" Aug 24, 12 8:31 PM

"I happen to frequent the place often"

Oh my, who would have guessed that! LOL
" Aug 24, 12 8:40 PM

Do you understand the word "was"?" Aug 25, 12 9:06 AM

HUH? Your response makes no sense." Aug 25, 12 9:09 AM

Curious how you know where the complaints come from. You must work for the police or town.

Isn't it typical that the people who live next to a problem establishment would complain while those that don't live by it wouldn't? Surely someone who lives in another town or miles away wouldn't be complaining since they don't live there and experience the issues. You also have to figure how many of the neighbors of Rumba are year round. Those not there wouldn't be complaining.

" Aug 25, 12 9:13 AM

You have "no problem" naming them, but won't. That makes sense! LOL You will however blame everything on one family and name them repeatedly.

If you actually cared, you would be expecting all restaurants to be in compliance. That is all that is being asked of Rumba.

Hate to pop your little bubble Terri but this really has NOTHING to do with the Warners. Your "feeling" is wrong. This has to do with fixing the problems in our hamlet. ALL problems should be addressed not just the ones that aren't associated with you. Against small business, now that is a laugh and a half. Expecting people to follow the law is not anti business in any way shape or form. You never, not once, address the fact that Rumba is in violation of the law and why to your mind, that is ok. You never once say they aren't in violation, Mr. Hersh never says he is not in violation, yet there is this big conspiracy in the minds of the Rumba supporters. Right. " Aug 25, 12 9:23 AM

So what you are saying is that Mr. Hersh doesn't care a whit about breaking the law. He has made that fact abundantly clear by his statements and actions.

Did you really expect Jim Malone or any other Board Member to be there and tell them to behave?" Aug 25, 12 11:51 AM

UPDATE: Charges After Partiers Are Rescued From Sandbar

What neither story is reporting is that there was a boat which was supposed to be removing the people from the island but it got stuck on a sandbar. The boat was right there in the midst of it and he called for help." Aug 26, 12 3:11 PM

Southampton Town Councilman Says Legal Action Could Be In Rumba's Future

And you believe they would be the only people complaining? Not everyone would attend a town board meeting even if they could. The fact remains, Mr. Hersh is in violation of the law. Since people want to see him get away with it, they will be sure to understand when others do also. He now has another establishment, why continue to break the law at this one? Wasn't that the purpose of opening a larger place? Makes no sense.

You can't have it both ways. If it is illegal, it's illegal. ALL business are supposed to be held to the same standards.

Town Board Rejects First Draft Of Canoe Place Inn Report

Rechler? Seriously? Do you think people are going to think that the people proposing this project are against it? LOL" Jan 23, 13 2:21 PM

Now if only they would have followed through on the "Stop Work Order" that was issued for the so called "Church" being built on Montauk Hwy in HB. How do you have a piece of property clear cut, a building renovated into a Church, a Stop Work Order issued, and it keeps going?

they have many more T's to cross and I's to dot." Jan 23, 13 2:24 PM

I haven't heard anything...have you?
" Jan 23, 13 10:23 PM

as in a resale boat showroom?" Jan 24, 13 7:53 AM

Actually pcone the plan is that the Rechlers will build and the complete the Inn before they start on the townhouses. Not sure who "we" is and why you are out of money, nor what it has to do with the developers. They own the property on the east side of the canal. They are entitled to build on it. They will build on it. What they build is all that is left up in the air. If the town votes against their plan, they will, legally, build on both sites.

As far the public access, this is what the community wanted, to be allowed to walk on that side of the canal. This wasn't the developers idea, it was the community's.. " Jan 24, 13 11:01 AM

you have a problem with Riverhead and Flanders residents? " Jan 24, 13 11:12 AM

oh, got it. so he thinks that someone is going to believe Rechlers will say they have no money? LOL clever. How would leaving the property on the west side empty possibly be economically wise? Had they wanted to do that, they could have just bought the east side and built what they wanted! smart. let's buy property and do nothing with it.

When was the last time that piece of land flooded? seriously, if it is a "flood zone' why is anyone allowed to build there? Not to mention, the whole shore is pretty much a flood zone. that is the nature of living on the water. That is true, they can and will build on both sides, which so very many people just don't seem to understand. The amounts they can build on the west side, is much more than more people believe possible. will it be better to have more transient lodging on the other side? based on info provided by the town, as of right they can build a hotel. and other structures, not sure that is actually better than having Town houses which quite likely will not be used part of the year. (then again, the town will probably have allowed our hamlet's hotels be switched to apartments or homeless shelters which will open the door for other establishments to do the same...that will help our hamlet) . the point that has been made is that while they are building more on the east side then as of right, what is there now, will be rebuilt and is less than could be built there as of right." Jan 24, 13 11:45 AM

Consistent? Three years ago I said that the Inn shouldn't be taken down and replaced with condos. I still think that is true. What's inconsistent about that? LOL

This was in reference to taking down the Inn and building timeshares/condos on that site. There was no discussion about the east side because it had not yet been purchased. My quote, which by the way I'm actually flattered that you remember my words - referred to the Inn and only the Inn property.

With this plan, that Inn will remain standing. It will not have condos there. The other side will actually have town houses...again different tax base. The Rechlers...or should i say you, ha ha, bought the property on the east side. it is completely totally different from their original purchase on the west side. If the Inn is torn down, as of right, there can be condos/townhouses/motels/restaurants on both pieces. Those of you who are advocating for as of right building on both sides, should know what that actually means. If those cottages are taken down, there is much more space there that can be legally, as of right, be built on. Not to mention if they go to the town and ask for a PDD, which they of course still could do.

The plan being considered still has the least impact.

If this plan goes though, there will be Town houses on the east side. Nothing is being added to the footprint of the west side.
so, if the complaint is there shouldn't be building on the east, how happy is everyone going to be with larger structures on the east and west?

These properties were sold. They were purchased. The owners are allowed to build on it. If the community had wanted this land preserved, the time would have been before it was purchased, not after. If you really care about what goes on the canal, the time is NOW to see what else is, or will be up for grabs. " Jan 24, 13 4:41 PM

there are sign laws in sh town. everyone should follow them. one of them is that only a certain amount of a window can be covered with paper signs. it doesn't matter who owns the building...it matters that they follow the laws. signs are to be permanent, the code enforcers don't do much enforcing in hb.
" Jan 24, 13 8:23 PM

We used to have a sign inspector....Harriet Tuthill. We didn't have a problem. I don't recall who it was before that, but it used to be one designated person. Yes I have mentioned them. Some of them have been there for years. There is one restaurant on west montauk that at one time had at least 5 different signs outside their building, metal ones, plywood, I'd be surprised if any were legal.

What difference does it make if someone has a photo? Some people like their photo taken and others don't. I am not sure what that has to do with the innocence or guilt of this man.

Right, NO ONE knows what happened. That includes those saying it could not have happened. Just because you know someone, doesn't mean you know everything about them.

Given the fact that the man is so highly respected it would seem that the school would have made sure there was plenty of subsistence to the claims being made. They surely wouldn't have rushed in without a valid reason.

Is that why you don't have "a face"? LOL

I don't understand why one would now be 'judging' the posters instead of discussing the story." Mar 21, 13 7:54 AM

Since this story was circulating like wildfire with all sorts of stories from students as well as adults, I am sure that the school wanted to make sure the community knew that it was being addressed.

I'd image the school has been receiving large amounts of inquiries regarding this. Parents are concerned and want to know what is happening.

whether the arrest is premature or not we shall not know for awhile. One way or the other, its a terrible story." Mar 22, 13 9:17 AM

Rumba Discussion Continues, Reluctantly

It is sad that she believes this. There is and has been a problem with this restaurant. There is not enough parking because it isn't meant to have more parking than it needs for customers to be seated.

It is wrong that the rest of the Town Board does not speak up. If the code enforcement isn't doing their job, they should say so. If they are, they need to support the employees they employ and the laws on the books of our town.

" Jul 25, 13 4:51 PM

The complaints are NOT only coming from the few individuals you mentioned. Surely you don't think all those who wrote in this dialogue are those few that you mentioned. It would seem though that the patrons ARE the only ones who aren't complaining.

" Jul 25, 13 4:53 PM

You said it was a fishing station back in the 40's...what about the 50's 60's 70's?

This isn't about "small business" in our town. There are plenty of them and they manage to live within the laws of our town. Rumba is not one of them. Why don't you fight for the ones that are an asset to our community? Oh that's right, the rum punch. Valid argument.

" Jul 25, 13 5:08 PM

??? He who???" Jul 25, 13 5:10 PM

For those of you who didn't read the article referred to this is what the Baykeeper said:

Mr. McAllister added that a standard septic system, like the one being proposed, is not the answer, though county officials have noted that it meets current standards to protect groundwater.

“I am happy he has a successful business and I really take no exception to the level of patronage that he experiences day in and day out,” he said. “What they are proposing is a conventional system—there’s no upgrade here.”" Jul 25, 13 5:11 PM

Well since there are more than " ats Ed Wanner and fis wife and a womaE namad Irene Tully. " stating here that they think there is a problem, and since I am not one of those people mention and I know there is a problem, and since I know that there are dozens of other people who have a problem with it, I am confident that neither of you are accurate.

Your daughter can work at another restaurant; plenty of other college students do; this isn't "selective enforcement" and who is this "one man"? Are you referring to Bridget? Or the code enforcement officers who issue the complaints?

" Jul 25, 13 5:20 PM

Sirpoochala - I have traveled Canoe Place Road and seen the Rumba Bus plowing through stop sides, coming over the double yellow line and generally driving in an erratic matter. This has been for years, even before their accident. There are people all over the road. It is a dangerous spot and not meant to have the volume of nighttime traffic that it does.

Yes, there are those that don't want to believe it, but it is well known to be true.

" Jul 25, 13 5:23 PM

"I love going there as well as the whole town."

We do? Thanks for speaking for us all.

Rumba is not any different in their support for the community than dozens of other businesses. That does NOT give them the right to flout the laws.

Overcrowding homes are just as illegal as overcrowded restaurants. Wouldn't
that be the 'selective enforcement' that was being complained about?

Revised Canoe Place Inn Proposal Is Receiving Mixed Reviews

Curious, what sewage treatment plant do you recommend? " Aug 14, 13 4:18 PM

Sorry to burst your bubble but there is no way to use a Nitrex system on the Inn property, which is why it isn't in the proposal.

What is your experience with a Nitrex system? I would be interested to learn where the system is located and what your personal experience has been with it. I do know that this was the system that the Bay Keeper was advocating for. I am interested in hearing why you don't believe it is the best choice.

I am not familiar with the BEEST although I see it was approved for use in Suffolk County at the same time as the Nitrex. What are the advantages? How does it differ?" Aug 14, 13 4:36 PM

The agreement is that they can not start building on the east side without first starting on the west side. I am sure that the community will complain should that not happen. Although after working on this project for years it makes no sense that they'd like to continue delaying the project and continue to tie up their money.

The Inn wasn't for sale until recently. Who said the public didn't care?

How are PBCs more beneficial to our waters?

All of your statements are supposition on your part and have no basis in fact. You can think and guess whatever you want but it doesn't make it true.
" Aug 15, 13 8:41 AM

Since the Town didn't preserve the land on the east side of the canal there is no scenario where there is no sewage. There is plenty of sewage now and there is an outdated septic system.

No one said that taxes will be lowered. The Town Houses will generate MORE taxes than if they were condos.

Nature, to recap what you've said, you feel that a BESST system is better than Nitrex, but offer no reasons why nor examples where you've seen them in use.

You feel that PBCs which will not directly impact the waters are better than any sewage treatment system. Why?

As always, your last statement is pure conjecture on your part, not based in any of the facts presented. " Aug 15, 13 8:46 AM

The proposed agreement. Happier now? If you had been involved in the process you would know that this question has been addressed repeatedly. If the PDD is passed they can not build on the east side without working on the west. That isn't supposition or conjecture. Go ask the Town Board. Although again, why would you think it would be financially smart to delay their own construction after being delayed for years?

You haven't explained your reasons for wanting the BESST system. Nor have you provided your experiences which have helped you arrive at this decision.

Incentive zoning is based on a dollar amount and the value of PBC is far less than the value of the public benefits being proposed. If the PDD is passed there is less density because there will not be new construction on the west side.

To re-iterate building as of right gives us higher density and less protection of our bays. Sounds smart.

50 years ago the Inn was not a nightclub.

Public access...I have never ever seen anyone 'access' this piece of property unless they are going to one of the private buildings. No one walks on it. I've never seen anyone fish on it. What exactly is this public access that will be so missed? Should they decide to build a motel on the property as of right the access will be the same as it will be if they build Town Homes.

If you think the other places can "go residential" based on this PDD you have no idea how this all works.

You are right it is absurd and shameful that people don't bother to make their decisions based on facts. " Aug 29, 13 10:01 PM

Yes. It was in the original plan. Yes I am sure. Ask the Town Board.

There have been meetings held at all of the local community organizations. Were you there? Are you a member of a community group? Are you involved in the community? If so, you would have heard about this. Do you read the newspaper? If so, you could have read the news coverage. Watch our public TV station's coverage of the Town Board Meetings? You would have seen it. There was a PUBLIC meeting held at the high school over a year ago. At that time the Bay Keeper was advocating for the Nitrex System, even though it was not yet approved by SCDH. Were you there? It's great that you are educating yourself at the last minute, but it doesn't mean that the information wasn't out there for years. This was not a secret.

Get the facts. Have you met with the engineers? They offered to meet with the community. Did you tour the Nitrex facility? Have you researched NITREX? Educating oneself doesn't mean listening to your neighbor who has no actual knowledge of planning, construction, engineering or any other aspects of a project of this size.

No, the SCHD can not comment on the project. Nor did anyone say they could. Yes, they can comment on the NITREX system. Especially since they are the ones who approved it for use in the County. Not that the state of our bays are of any interest to the detractors.

It is disingenuous to state that it is in your backyard when it is no where near your home.

By all means, get involved. The community organizations are always looking for willing workers.

I don't care if you support the project. You are entitled to your opinions and so is everyone else. I do care that people make educated decisions.

All letters to the Town Board are always entered into the public record. Nothing is different about this process than any others that have been put forth in the town. No greater import is put on this subject than others have in the past. Voice your support!

This article had much more "gold-flecked fecal matter" in it then anyone would ever get from a waste water treatment plant. " Aug 29, 13 11:36 PM

Disinformation doesn't mean that the project is not sound. The decision remains with the Town Board. I am sure they are aware of the facts and that will be what they base their decision on.

The information on donations to candidates is available on the Board of Elections website. Go have a look.

Cheap land? Guess I missed a golden opportunity. The seller must have been unaware of the value of the property since they sold it "cheap". Why didn't someone else jump on this steal? I'd have thought the renters on the east side who knew the property was for sale and their leases may not be renewed, would have jumped on it! Cheap waterfront! WOW, now ya tell us.

You claim to be concerned about our waterways, yet you want to scrap a plan that will provide the most protection for our waterways. Building as of right improves nothing. The density will be greater as of right since the PDD does not increase density on the west side. And again, less protection for the waterways that you are so rightly worried about.

Has been there been a problem with existing treatment systems in our town? " Aug 30, 13 12:37 PM

"Fact: the density of the 40 town houses is immense for the acreage which is why the developers are seeking a zone change"

"Immense" Source please?

Fact: It is typical for the town board to send developers back to the drawing board during this process.

Fact: The NITREX systems - by design - can not be placed on property on the canal. Have you spoken to anyone with knowledge about the system yet?

Fact: The Town Board will make their decision based on input from the community. That is exactly how this process got to be where it is. No one has ever denied anyone their opinion in this or any other plan in our hamlet. Allowing all voices, no matter how nonsensical, is absolutely a part of the democratic practices of our country and has been a part of this saga since the beginning. No one has taken away any rights here. It is your right to pay attention. It is your right to not pay attention. It is even your right to voice completely unfounded opinions.

Hearing from both sides is not a new thought. When listening to different perspectives you must keep in mind that property owners have rights. They will and should be protected by the law. It is not your right to tell your neighbor to build a park on their property or how to use their property, Or put their cesspools somewhere else. It is not your right to tell someone to swap their property for another piece somewhere that YOU don't live. It is not your right to demand someone do what you think should be done.

"Separate the facts from the emotions and see things clearly."

I urge you to follow your own advice." Aug 30, 13 12:52 PM

Are you suggesting they won't know they are purchasing next to a road going over the bridge? LOL

Not that they can't complain - look at the North Sea Residents who want to close the entire North Sea Rd because there is noise. That didn't go to far.

(Psstt...I know, I was being factious! Insert appropriate emoticon here)" Aug 30, 13 4:38 PM

I am sure Nature that you would be able to say this based on the fact that you have been paying attention for the past two decades. However the op (who I was responding to) didn't know anything about the MPDD until the Town put up the legal notices and TOLD them. There is no reason to believe that when they state it is "immense" it is based on anything factual. Just more scary sounding words. Debate is good. But at least try and learn what is truth before you go spouting off nonsense.

Let's face it, those who haven't heard about this saga clearly weren't paying attention. To wake up at the last second and pass around unfounded thoughts and swear they are fact is not beneficial to anyone.

None of these projects are ever going to make everyone happy. There are many facets to be considered. The best that can be hoped for is that the majority is happy, our community is benefited and that our environment is preserved. Is it a perfect system? Absolutely not. But until someone finds one that is, it is the one that we are stuck with.

Clearly, the "30 Residents" don't give a hoot about the environment or they would be finding out the facts about what can be built. The NITREX system is better for our bays. But, who cares?? Someone who knows diddly on the subject of waste water treatments 'thinks' that it will be smelly, noisy and ugly. Which by the way, I can understand why they would think that...what a great selling point for the owners! " Aug 31, 13 4:06 PM

UPDATE: Services Scheduled For Hampton Bays Woman Killed In Flanders Road Crash

Well the DOT was out there this afternoon working on the potholes. I am sure it is a coincidence.

My sympathies to the family of Mrs. Tocci. So very sad.

Flanders Man Pleads Not Guilty To Charges In Fatal Hampton Bays Accident

I was just wondering the same thing. He is remorseful for something that happened but he why would he be since he wasn't guilty even though he was drunk and killed someone. Really, someone is confused." Jan 23, 14 5:04 PM

No I understand. I just think that the lawyer's words could have been better chosen. He sounds a bit foolish.

I understand it...as I said above, the lawyer's words were poorly chosen. "He recognizes that this is a tragedy, and he obviously didn't intend for any of this to happen and he wishes none of it took place." I should hope he recognizes it is a tragedy and of course he didn't intend for it to happen and wishes it didn't. What's his point? Everyone is 'not guilt'. That seems to be status quo these day. Yes it does seem as though the fact that he is a 'single father' is supposed to help his situation. Not sure that works either. He's a single father who was out at 4am, drunk and chose to drive. Not the best of role models. " Jan 24, 14 8:23 AM
