On Tuesday, the East Hampton Town Board rescinded an earlier vote of the board in November that had paved the way for the town’s participation in a United States Department of Agriculture deer culling program.
The program, which had proposed to eliminate 3,000 deer across the East End, caused a public outcry before even getting under way, and several towns and villages have withdrawn from it.
Tenants and administrators of Windmill Village II, an affordable housing complex for senior citizens off Accabonac Road in East Hampton, brought long-standing complaints about mold in the basements of the buildings there, and its potential effects on health, to a meeting of the East Hampton Town Board on Tuesday.
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.
