John Jilnicki, the East Hampton Town attorney, has assigned his deputy, Carl Irace, to research the town’s code of ethics as well as legal decisions and opinions regarding conflicts of interest or the appearance of impropriety.
The action came in response to a letter Mr. Jilnicki received regarding an apparent relationship between Mr. Irace, who is the attorney for the town zoning board, and an attorney who represented a client before that board.
Martin Drew, a local resident who has been pressing East Hampton Town for years to allow all-terrain vehicles on public trails and to establish A.T.V. and motocross bicycle tracks, had his say before the town board on Tuesday.
Announcing that he was now the head of a group called Long Island Sports, he said he might drop the quest to expand where motorized “off-highway vehicles” are permitted to focus solely on a site for motorized bicycle sports. Trails are now limited to walkers and bicyclists.
