Recap: Southold Town Board discusses yellow bags and wetland codes

10/09/2012 4:30 PM |

This afternoon’s Town Board meeting includes a discussion of the yellow bag program, which will remain in effect. Three property clean-ups are also slated for approval. A live blog of the 4:30 p.m. meeting and this morning’s work session is posted below.

Southold Town’s plan to zone Plum Island before it can be sold by the federal government was discussed at this morning’s Southold Town Board work session. Also up for discussion were the Southold animal shelter and comments from the town’s agricultural advisory committee on the comprehensive plan.

Also slated for discussion are approvals for property maintenance clean-ups, which are a result of the town’s recently approved legislation allowing the public works department to clean up derelict properties and attach a bill for their services to property tax bills.

A bill tabled last month to change the wetland permit section of the code is also up for review, as is an amendment to the pet waste law adopted early this summer clarifying the rules regarding cleaning up after livestock.

The Suffolk Times will begin live blogging the work session at 9 a.m. and the regular meeting at 4:30 p.m. An agenda for the meeting is available below.
