A review of the East Hampton Town Building Department prompted by the discoveries of an undeposited 2010 check for a building permit, $290 in undeposited cash along with a receipt lacking a year, and a cash receipt book with pages missing has led to the development of stricter controls over the issuance of building permits and the collection of fee payments.
Town Hall Campus Remake
East Hampton Town will accept proposals from architectural firms with ideas for remaking the Town Hall campus, where the original Town Hall building has sat empty for several years after the completion of a new main building from donated historic structures.
The plan is to eliminate off-campus town offices, such as those at the Pantigo Place office condominiums, which would be sold, and to consolidate all of the town offices on the main campus.
An electric-vehicle charging station, newly installed at East Hampton Town Hall, will be unveiled at 9 a.m. Friday at an event sponsored by the town board and the Natural Resources Department. The public has been invited.
The station is in front of the police annex at the town hall campus on Pantigo Road. It use will be demonstrated, using electric vehicles provided by Buzz Chew Chevrolet and Tesla Motors, whose representatives will be on hand to answer technical questions.
