The provider of credit ratings and risk analysis cited the village’s sizable and affluent tax base and modest debt burden as strong indicators of its financial position.

The colorful vases, bowls, dinnerware, and sconces lovingly arranged throughout the house are, in fact, not especially valuable and many of the pieces have no identification.
Amagansett may finally get the public restrooms some residents have sought for more than a decade.
At a meeting of the hamlet’s citizens advisory committee on Monday, East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell, the town board’s liaison to the committee, showed a blueprint of the parking lot on the north side of Main Street, and suggested a restroom location near the lot’s center adjacent to a vegetated island as opposed to in the southwest corner, as had originally been proposed.
