Sagaponack Village has two seats on its board up for grabs, and residents can cast their votes tomorrow at Village Hall between noon and 9 p.m. According to Rhodi Cary-Winchell, the village clerk, the only petitions filed for the two-year terms were from two incumbents.
It will be Joy Sieger’s fourth term if re-elected. One of the first members of the village board, she has served since December 2006. William Barbour won his seat in 2011 in a write-in campaign.
According to election law, candidates in villages with fewer than 1,000 residents are required to gather signatures from 5 percent of the number of voters in the previous election. There were 78 voters last time, so candidates needed only 4 signatures. However, Ms. Winchell said, Ms. Sieger and Mr. Barbour gathered 25 each.
At Monday’s board meeting, both incumbents weighed in on issues such as a new law restricting yard sales, beach parking, flooding, garbage, and speeding on village roads.
A hearing was set for July 8 at 3 p.m. on reducing the speed limit from 30 miles per hour to 25 on Sagg Road north of Montauk Highway to the railroad tracks.
