Main Street Is Epicenter Of This Year's Westhampton Beach Village Board Election

Sewers will not bring new people. If its not paid for by the Feds it will cost the taxpayers about $50 million.Vast majority of the pollution is caused by the runoff and the lawns. People are not in town 9 months of the year flushing their toilets yet their lawns are being maintained and the cars and trucks are driving the roads. Palmer has got to go. " Jun 13, 16 7:23 PM

Hampton Bays Taxpayers Speak Up, Reject $15.8 Million Bond Referendum

Agree - same thing happens at the WHB Library. People need to be paid a fair wage. Time for ELECTED Boards at all Librarys. " Jun 15, 16 11:02 PM

Rumba Files Trademark Infringement Complaint Against New Caribbean-Theme Restaurant In Hampton Bays

REALLY Rumba? Concentrate on your food, service, and brand and you have nothing to worry about. I actually noticed this restaurant in the early spring and never even thought of yours." Jun 17, 16 8:00 PM

Newcomer Stephen Frano Wins Seat On Westhampton Beach Board Of Trustees

2 more years of Moore and she is next to go. The Oneck Party is losing its grip." Jun 17, 16 11:02 PM

And 209 votes in with only 132 Voting for Mayor Moore. 37% of the ultra low turnout decided not to vote for her and it was an uncontested race. In 2014 she received 284 votes out of 471 total cast. I guess the public is realizing her accomplishments are cosmetic, her command of the public meetings are pitiful, and her platform will eventually cost us taxpayers greatly. As it is the "studies" on the sewer district are approaching $100,000 for an eventual sewer system that will run in excess of $50 million and not even serve the whole community- just the main street businesses. She can't even advise if the feds will pay for it or not and will leave leave us taxpayers with the bill. " Jun 17, 16 11:23 PM

Second Tuckahoe School Budget Proposal Fails To Muster Enough Voter Support

Well Said Obbservant." Jun 22, 16 8:01 AM

Nice $50,000 per student. When you do the numbers its absolutely crazy. These kids could go to a top rated private school for that money (including room and board) plus would provide a great education and set them up for college. Tuckahoe should move towards doing that." Jun 22, 16 1:34 PM

Donald Trump To Attend Fundraiser In Southampton on Saturday

Probably Highhatsize But she still lied to the American people about Benghazi when she told her daughter the truth the same night not to mention her soliciting money for the Clinton foundation as a American Official and if thats not true where are the missing e-mails to prove it. Now we can go on and on about the Clintons (ha just this week also) but people like you don't seem to mind this behavior. Yes Trump is no bargin but your side has been messing it up for years (yes Republicans and Dems). God Bless America that we can have opinions with our public officials." Jul 2, 16 11:04 AM

oh I guess her testimony is not correct. Another Clinton blunder. Keep believing the BS from these people and go bah like a real sheep." Jul 2, 16 6:34 PM

Westhampton Beach Trustees Authorize Topography Review Of Main Street

Still no results on the Sewer District ultimate cost and who will foot the bill? Also lets not forget about the cost of maintenance of the facility on the taxpayers. Hmmm. Can they be hiding something?" Jul 12, 16 2:37 PM

Yes I did and the engineers estimates are in so whats the cost? Whats to hide? Who's paying?" Jul 12, 16 5:33 PM

I did request it. They are not releasing it. Its was mentioned by a person who read a preliminary report the sewer district would cost about $55 mil. yearly operation cost about $2.5m. So with no help from the feds the Village taxes will go up in excess of 50%. Remember the Village budget is about $10m a year. The raw numbers alone would add $3m a year to the budget. Now possibly the person who has the knowledge is not correct, possibly its a rumor, I don't really know. But when you look at similar systems, cost to construct, operate, amortize over 20yrs w debt servicing the rumor numbers do make sense. Additionally if you also view the eco reports the sewer district would have little impact on the pollution in the bays and the sewer district would basically only be for main street and not the rest of the village. (of course they have been selling it as being able to improve Main St traffic and business in a town that basically empties out 9 months of the year).Now I would personally double my village taxes if the system services the whole village and not just the Mayors development friends on Main Street who supported her office."

Westhampton Free Library Looks To Renovate Storage Space

Wanna buy a bridge the Library Board asks? Over $5m cash in the bank and they state the Slovak donation will allow them not to raise taxes hahahaha.Tell the truth for once Moore! " Jul 19, 16 8:06 PM

"The library, as an association library, enjoys the benefit of being a public-private partnership" Tom Moore stated in a prepared statement. WOW! REALLY? A widely accepted definition of a Private Public Partnership is defined as a "long term contract between a private party and a government entity, for providing a public asset or service, in which the private party bears significant risk and management responsibility, and renumeration is linked to performance". So Mr Moore- who is the private party who bears significant risk? What is the renumeration? Last I checked the Library was 98% funded by taxes and 2% funded by donations. STOP misleading the public.

Westhampton Beach Officials Hear Preliminary Costs For Main Street Revitalization

$4,4 million for a small section of Main Street. That doesn't include the tens of millions "Moore" for the sewer system the Mayor and Trustees are working on. My estimates for WHB taxes have now doubled if Moore gets her way. Yes Main Street needs a spruce up that takes money but to add that to a sewer system will sink this little village in tax increases. Its nice to see all the homes and business's along the new roadway will need to pay additions to their tax increases for hook-ups to the new utilities. Between the multi million dollar renovations of the new library the Husband of Moore is proposing and the tens and tens of millions the spouse Maria Moore is proposing this is the Villages new "Multi-Million Dollar Couple" who love spending other peoples money.

Resident Calls For Wi-Fi Routers To Be Removed From Westhampton Beach Schools, Library

Its nice to see My O'Dwyer get some respect. To see the way some on the Village Board treat him at meetings is not very nice. Its a continuation of the influence of their benefactor on Oneck. They are afraid to step out of her shadow. " Aug 9, 16 5:25 PM

Architects Float Pair Of Ideas For Westhampton Library Renovation Project

Yup over $4,000,000 in the bank. Cash. And they want to spend $1,000,000 for a parking lot and $625,000 on first floor renovations. This is NOT donation money. How about some honesty when the Board reports their plans to the newspaper. Read the Library minutes from 11/18/15. More $$ for renovations hidden in this attic "proposal". Yet the employees are among the lowest paid library employees on LI. They were so mistreated by the prior appointed Board they voted in a Union to protect them. This appointed Board seems to be perpetuating the misgivings of the prior appointed Board. " Aug 26, 16 9:55 AM

Major Changes Waiting In Wings For Montauk Harbor

"Change is coming whether you like it or not" is not a way to endear yourself with a community. Im all for progress but people who live in and support the year round community need jobs, affordable places to live, and a voice in their future. I don't live in Montauk but this needs to be a theme throughout the east end. " Sep 20, 16 9:30 PM

Developer Moving Forward With Plans For New Building On Main Street In Westhampton Beach

looks like a pressure play for one or two entities in the Village to write a check. Lets see who comes forward first or will the Mayor handle it at the dinner table after consulting with her benefactor. " Sep 21, 16 3:39 PM

Westhampton Beach Officials Oppose Suggested Shortening Of Rock Jetties

Good Point Big Fish. I would not put it past this Mayor and some of the Trustees to cater to a hometown organization (Wonder what the relationship w Tyman is with them and his role in this). Of course you cant blame Coastal- they play it real good. Hats off to them but what's the political favor gonna be in return?" Sep 29, 16 8:05 AM

No Problem. And I do. BTW I guess they will have no problem disclosing their "relationship" and other firms vetted. You see its called "transparency". I'm waiting..." Sep 29, 16 11:12 AM

Westhampton Free Library Taps Architect To Oversee Second Floor Renovations

Tom Moore- sorry- but what a joke. You forgot to tell the Press about the hundreds of thousands of dollars of tax payer money you are also spending on the new HVAC system, buying a parking lot, redesigning the 1st floor. Like I said before between the husband and wife team of Moore (Tom) and Moore (Maria) they will be spending lots of taxpayer money without full disclosure. Plus- isn't it interesting the Moores (Tom and Maria) are hiring the same firm to do the design on both the Village and Library? Hmmm. $185,000 to redesign the original $7.8m building. Tell the truth for once Tom (and Maria) or is that not in your character? " Oct 27, 16 7:58 PM
