COURTESY PHOTO | Peconic Bay Water Jitney that had a trial run between Greenport and Sag Harbor last summer is unlikely to return this summer.

Organizers of the Peconic Water Jitney, which ran last summer between Greenport and Sag Harbor, will give a presentation before the Greenport Village Board at its meeting at 6 p.m. tonight at the Third Street firehouse.

Geoff Lynch, a partner in the project, told Times/Review reporters earlier this month that it would take a multi-million dollar infusion of money for the water taxi to run again this summer.

Mr. Lynch said about there were about 15,000 trips booked on the taxi last summer, fewer than the project’s organizers had hoped.

Also up for public hearing is a local law setting fines for delinquent parking tickets in the village. If the law is adopted, scofflaws would pay an additional $100 if they don’t pay their fines within 30 days, $200 if they don’t pay within 60 days and $300 if they don’t pay within 90 days.
