In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has taken several steps to aid homeowners who have made or will make storm-related claims to their insurance companies.
First, the governor announced last week that homeowners will not have to pay hurricane deductibles on claims relating to the storm, as Sandy did not have hurricane-force winds when it made landfall in New York, his office said in a release.
A hearing will be held at East Hampton Town Hall next Thursday at 7 p.m. on the purchase, for open space, of approximately four acres of land on Ardsley Road in Wainscott. The $2 million price would be taken from the community preservation fund.
