East Hampton Town’s governing bodies will hold organizational meetings for 2022 next week.
Due to the pandemic and virtual nature of the meetings, the swearing-in of board members, including those newly elected, will not happen during the organizational meetings. Plans for the swearing-in of some officials were still uncertain yesterday, said Carole Brennan, the town clerk.
Most of the town trustees, including David Cataletto, their newest member, who replaces Rick Drew, will be sworn in Friday at 11 a.m. at Town Hall. Some of the nine trustees are out of town and have already been sworn in, Francis Bock, the body’s presiding officer, said yesterday.
Cate Rogers, a former chairwoman of the Democratic Committee, is the newest member of the town board, replacing Jeff Bragman. She will probably be sworn in, along with the board’s four incumbents, before Tuesday, Ms. Brennan said.
Meetings of the town board and town trustees continue to be held in virtual format due to the pandemic. They can be seen live on LTV’s channel 22 and on its website, as well as on its YouTube channel. Members of the public can call in to meetings by dialing 351-888-6331.
The town board will hold its organizational meeting on Tuesday at 11 a.m. The board’s first regular meeting of the new year will take place next Thursday at 2 p.m.
The trustees will hold their organizational meeting on Monday at 6:30 p.m. Their first regular meeting will be on Jan. 10, also at 6:30 p.m.
