East Hampton Town
Lifeline for Life Saving Station
Exterior repairs and restoration of the historic Amagansett Life Saving Station will be done gratis by Ben Krupinski, an East Hampton resident and contractor.
After attending a recent re-enactment of the Nazi landing on nearby Atlantic Avenue beach during World War II, Mr. Krupinski offered to do the work, which will include installing authentic window replacements.
The life-saving station, which was a private residence off Bluff Road for many years, was donated to the town by the Carmichael family and moved to its original location on Atlantic Avenue. A committee has been formed to raise money so that it can be restored and opened to the public.
Sloppy Tuna in Trouble
The East Hampton Town Board will hold a hearing on Aug. 14 on whether to suspend a music permit issued to the Sloppy Tuna in Montauk, which has received its fourth citation for violating the town noise ordinance this summer.
The town code calls for a mandatory hearing to occur after a fourth alleged violation. Members of the public may attend and comment. The hearing will be held during a regularly scheduled town board work session at the Montauk Firehouse, which begins at 10 a.m.
