Taxi drivers in East Hampton Town will be fingerprinted and checked for criminal convictions under a new law passed last Thursday.
Before being issued a town taxi license, drivers and principals in taxi companies will be vetted by state and town officials.
Early this month, Inda Eaton, a musician with roots in the West who now lives in Springs, sat on a classroom floor among a circle of fourth-graders in Casper, Wyo., talking about the song they had written with her during the school year, which was slated for an official debut later in the week.
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.
