East Hampton Town

Seek Food Truck and Pool Bids

    East Hampton Town is soliciting bids from food truck vendors interested in leasing the exclusive right to sell at Gin Beach in Montauk. Bids must be received by 3 p.m. on Wednesday by the town’s Purchasing Department, which can provide specifications.

    Bids are also being sought for a rehabilitation — by marble dusting — of the pools at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter. They are due by next Thursday.

    Stephen Lynch, the East Hampton Town highway superintendent, will take on the additional responsibilities of supervising the Sanitation Department, according to a recent vote of the town board. The former Sanitation Department head, Patrick Keller, retired as of March 27. Mr. Lynch will be paid an annual stipend of $15,000 for the additional duties.

Overton’s Campaign Kick-Off

    Fred Overton will kick off his campaign for East Hampton Town councilman with a fund-raiser on Sunday at the Harbor Bistro on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton. Mr. Overton, who is running on the Republican and Independence tickets, is the current town clerk.

    The party on Sunday will run from 3 to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $50 in advance and $75 at the door. Advance tickets are available through Mr. Overton or Tina Piette in Amagansett.
