Southampton Town residents express opinions on leaf pick-up program

I live in the woods and have many trees in my yard. We rake up over 20 yards of leaves and put them at curbside. I could not possibly bag this amount of leaves. I can not afford to have them hauled away due to the quantity. I tried taking them to the dump with a pick up, but after a day of this, I realized that it was not feasable. We have paid taxes for many years and watched dump study after dump study starting in the 50' s. We now pay to take our garbage to the transfer station. The $$$ that are in the budget for this are somehow no longer being used for garbage. I don't get much for my taxes in Southampton Town but I at least get leaf pick up. They never pick up in the fall but do at least get there in the Spring. Please keep this program in place." Apr 3, 10 11:20 AM

Raucous Meeting Focuses On Fights At Southampton High School

Maybe it's time to have cell phones and like devices banned from the school day. They could be placed in lockers until the school is out for the day." Oct 20, 10 10:34 AM

Police: Molotov Cocktail Placed In Front Of Southampton Highway Superintendent's House

I don't agree with this type of action but think we should impeach this guy. I get so little from the town but snow removal and leaf pickup. Without the leaf pickup I think we should furlough workers!" Jun 27, 11 5:46 PM

Windmill Lane Substation May Be Eyed For New Ambulance Headquarters

It seems more than a little expensive for a garage ! While I can understand there may be storage of supplies involved, I can see no reason to spend money to house a couple of ambulances,a first responder vehicle and supply locker. It is not necessary to have kitchens, break rooms and the like. " Apr 10, 12 6:20 PM

Southampton School District Reaches Settlement With Reclaim New York Over Denial Of Records

The school board members should have to pay this themselves! This is not a district responsibility. It was there choice not to release public information. They learn nothing if they don't have to assume the responsibility to pay the fine!
