Two controversial applications for subdivisions moved a step closer to a vote by the East Hampton Town Planning Board on April 1 after clearing a procedural hurdle.
The board concluded, after some contentious debate, that neither proposal, at 55 Wainscott Hollow Road in Wainscott and 38 Indian Wells Highway in Amagansett, required a lengthy evaluation under the State Environmental Quality Review Act.
A Sag Harbor man facing a charge of petty larceny forgot the most basic maxim for criminals: make sure no one is watching.
Sag Harbor Village police said that at about 6:30 a.m. on March 31, Gregory P. Zaykowski, 34, was caught on surveillance cameras stealing car batteries from five vehicles parked at Harbor Heights service station on Hampton Road. Police were able to pinpoint the time because the service shop’s manager and former owner, Gregg Miller, ran back the video from the multiple surveillance cameras placed around the property.
