Budget Hearing

    At its meeting tonight, the East Hampton Town Board is expected to approve scheduling a hearing for Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall on a proposed $69.9 million budget for 2014.

    The tentative spending plan was amended this week following two budget discussions in which the board agreed to add several items totaling $62,000. They include $15,000 for the salary of an employee who will become the town’s deer management coordinator, $25,000 for a new full-time clerk position to aid the zoning board of appeals and the architecture review board, $2,000 to maintain the historic town-owned North End Cemetery, and $20,000 for health insurance costs for a town board member, which had been left out of the budget.
