East Hampton Town
Affordable Housing Committee
An East Hampton Community Housing Opportunity Fund committee is to be formed, comprising seven residents who will discuss ideas for the establishment of affordable housing — an item on the new East Hampton Town Board’s agenda.
Student Art Extravaganza
The galleries at Guild Hall will be bursting with color starting on Saturday when the first part of the annual Student Art Festival opens to the public with a free reception and performances from 2 to 4 p.m. Artwork by children in kindergarten through eighth grade will be featured through Feb. 23. The second part of the exhibition, featuring art by high school students, will run from March 1 through April 20.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
