Whatta week this past week wasn't!
I totally punted Wednesday's August Village Board meeting... it was mostly Bo Bishop's fault... but then so did the Empress of Oneck and Junior Palmer.
And for all he brought to the front of the room, Hank Tucker could have stayed home as well.
Among items discussed were:
- Updated Rules of Procedures, a contentious issue among the Trustees prior to June's election; Mayor Conrad Teller has circulated a draft for comment.
- Progress was reported on a deer abatement program, and a public hearing will likely be scheduled in September.
- The Sign Committee, which produced nothing over the past four years under Trustee Tucker's direction, has been reactivated under new guidance.
- New action is in the works regarding parking tickets issued by the Village Police Department.
OtBB will strive to do better next month.
Earlier this week there had been the "Rumble on Canal Street" which drew police from all over the area. Minimal injuries were reported, arrests were made, a crowd was dispersed and some parents were inconvenienced, but order was re-established and Moniebogue Canal did not run red with the life's blood of participants.
(And to the mental midget on 27East who felt that Westhampton Beach should disband its own police force because other departments were called in, this isn't Texas and "One riot, one Ranger,")
To thems what suggested that one giant tomato does not "an impressive crop of huge, succulent tomatoes" make, submitted for your edification, delectation and envy:
And finally, not a moment too soon, the seven week-long "Dog Days of August" seem to have vacated the area, possibly warned off by the imminent arrival of peak Hurricane season.
O, and if you didn't get the "TW³" title, you probably weren't around in the early-'60s.
Are those heirlooms? Mighty nice!
Does anyone know why a realty office on Mitchell Lane has a window posting selling the Village Green for $700,000++ (plus maintenance and taxes)? Isn't the Village Green public property? Just wondering....
TW 3 - "This Week?"
I called Main Street Realty – the ad is for a condo in beautiful Westhampton Beach with a picture of the "Green." The realtor said the Village Green itself would be listed at a much higher price.
What is for sale is the Dune Deck.
Wow! She's serious, isn't she?!
