East Hampton Town
Indian Wells Hearing
The East Hampton Town Board will hold a hearing tonight to consider a prohibition on alcoholic beverages for a distance of 1,000 feet east and west of the Indian Wells Beach road end in Amagansett on weekends during lifeguard-protected hours. The proposed legislation represents compromises reached with the trustees, most of whom opposed any restriction and suggested a 500-foot ban, while the town board initially sought a 2,500-foot distance.
Representative Tim Bishop, Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr., County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, and Southampton Town Councilwoman Bridget Fleming and Councilman Brad Bender are among the guests expected at the Southampton Town Democratic Committee’s summer party on July 27.
