East Hampton Town
Arts Council Appointments
After establishing an East Hampton Arts Council last month, the East Hampton Town Board appointed 12 members to the group at a meeting last Thursday. The group includes visual artists and art instructors along with an art lawyer, a collector and photographer, a theater director, a writer and publisher, and owners of a gallery and a music store.
Larry Cantwell, the Democratic and Independence Party candidate for East Hampton Town supervisor, will lead a Montauk “listen in” with his Democratic running mates, Job Potter and Kathee Burke-Gonzalez, on Monday at 6:45 p.m. at Gurney’s Inn. They have invited residents to discuss their concerns about the hamlet and share ideas for what town government can to improve things.
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.
