Eight of the nine East Hampton Town Trustees voted to approve the repair of a rock revetment on the beach in front of 7 West End Road in East Hampton Village at a special meeting on Tuesday.
Anthony Manheim, the owner, submitted plans for the proposed revetment to the trustees in August. The proposal had been the subject of some dissent on the board. Deborah Klughers, a trustee, was unable to attend Tuesday’s meeting but asked that her letter opposing the repair be read into the record.
With Tuesday's voting just hours away, Representative Tim Bishop faces an uncertain future as a late Newsday/News 12/Siena College poll puts his challenger, State Senator Lee Zeldin, five points ahead at 50 percent to Mr. Bishop's 45 percent.
Representative Tim Bishop joined representatives from the Committee to Restore and Preserve the Amagansett U.S. Life Saving and Coast Guard Station in thanking the United States Merchant Marine Academy for its donation of a wooden lifeboat.
