Report Shows Uptick In Housing Investigations In Springs

Why was the multiple violator only fined $500? Must be more to the story. Are the judges reluctant to assess harsher penalties or is $500 the maximum penalty allowed under the law? Maybe it's time for a dedicated housing court to expedite court proceedings." Apr 20, 11 2:46 PM

Vampire Weekend, Bright Eyes Will Headline MTK Festival

Didn't the organizers say the groups would skew to an older audience? Gotta say I don't know any of the groups. I'll have to ask my 25 year old niece about them. Did the town or organizers choose the charities? No disrespect to the Surfrider Foundation, but I can think of better use of the money." May 10, 11 6:40 AM

I'm against the festival because if these inexperienced dudes screw it up then say goodbye to any future concerts here. They should have picked a September date to avoid the obvious traffic and hotel room issues and made it a one-day event. They also misled town officials and the public with respect to the nature of the acts. That said, I hope they pull it off." May 10, 11 11:59 AM

East Hampton Town Board Scraps Vendor Law At Last Minute

The incompetence rests in the lap of whomever supervised those evaluating the bids.Who were those people? First Wilky and Quigley say tough luck, a bid is a bid ..Ditch Witch lost. Only later after a 1000 people rail against the outcome on Facebook do the politicians say.. oh, my bad....not my fault. They tried to sneak a fastball by us and we drilled one of their kneecaps.

Southampton Town Board To Consider Most Expensive CPF Purchase In History

A Death Sparks Renewed Look At Water Safety Measures In East Hampton

The town should purchase for emergency personnel an air cannon that shoots a canister containing a self-inflating life buoy. These are used on oil platforms to rescue someone who has fallen into the sea. Several different types are available. These can also be stationed on unguarded beaches but would have to be removed at the end of each day." May 25, 11 9:57 AM

East Hampton Town Officials Pitch New Energy Department

An Energy Dept? Just what we need in the bustling metropolis of East Hampton. For many months people have been urging the administration to develop a policy on wind turbines and they haven't even done that. What a joke. " Jul 17, 11 8:48 AM

Independence Party Chairman Endorses Wilkinson

the big question is what was promised to whom for the county independence endorsement. any theories? should be a very interesting election season. why would any local independent vote the county line after this obvious slap in the face by county officials. " Jul 19, 11 8:36 AM

MTK Festival Cancelled Due To Low Ticket Sales

Wilkinson is now blaming the concert's failure on lack of community support. But didn't he claim earlier that only a small vocal segment of the community was against it and a silent majority was for it? Are politicians simply incapable of telling the truth?" Aug 7, 11 9:47 AM

East Hampton Supervisor Bill Wilkinson on Saturday said he was disappointed that the community failed to rally around the festival, and the controversies likely held major sponsors from getting behind the event (from easthamptonpatch.com)" Aug 7, 11 1:52 PM

Councilwoman Wants Town Board To Explore Shutting Down Clubs

formertbm...what you say is nonsense. Why should these bar/restaurant owners be allowed to operate with complete disregard to the welfare of their neighbors and the community? Other business comply, why can't they? Clearly they are willfully violating local laws as demonstrated by the multiple summonses they've received. One can't even make the argument that these businesses are adding to the local economy.. they aren't. Their customers come to Montauk for the night and then head home. We aren't talking about locally-owned bars that have roots in the community. Contrary to Quigley's typical loony comment, there's nothing wrong with targeting specific busineses.. those that are breaking the law. Once again the Republican majority is giving the middle finger to the local community. Why?.. maybe you can tell me." Aug 14, 11 9:35 PM

Right. Hordes of locals are cramming into Surf Lodge and Ruschmeyers for the $15 vodkas. I think it's great these restaurants and bars are thriving. But it's not so great that their successes are having a negative impact on neighbors and that local government is not taking the steps necessary to curb the unwanted behavior. Are you saying that businesses that willfully break the law shouldn't be targeted? The article you refer to about Wilkinson touring Montauk is a couple months old I believe. If he hasn't found a solution yet one can assume he is either completely incompetent or simply has no intention of doing anything. You think that's OK and I don't. " Aug 15, 11 12:34 PM

Wilkinson And Cohen Offer Competing Versions Of Financial History

Anyone who lived here during the McGintee period knows that Cohen exposed a lot of the financial issues. His letters to the editor of a local newspaper explained the problems and potential solutions brilliantly. Wilkinson simply is revising history to his discredit." Sep 28, 11 1:32 PM

East Hampton Town's Tentative Budget Includes Tax Cuts, Sale Of Poxabogue

Do you know the finances of poxabogue's golf and restaurant operations after depreciation etc ? How much are we selling it for? How can you say the sale is good without this info? Selling at the bottom market isn't good biz if the asset pays for itself. " Oct 2, 11 1:21 PM

East Hampton Agrees To Sell Poxabogue To Southampton

Classic Wilkinson. Screw public input.. I'll do what I want to do. If the facts support a sale, which arguably they might, why not allow taxpayers to voice support or opposition. There should a hearing on the sale. He always has to stick it to people who oppose him. Crazy.

Teen Night At East Hampton Nightclub Called Exploitive

I believe the principal's intent was to inform parents what is going on at the club in case they aren't aware. Nothing wrong with that.. RIGHT? I hear that some young kids are attending. They deserve protection even if their parents are idiots.
