The Southold Town Board is scheduled to discuss the idea of installing a bus shelter in front of Town Hall during work session Tuesday morning. Supervisor Scott Russell first introduced the idea last month in order to better accommodate county bus riders.

The board has heard repeated objections from town business owners and civic group members, who believe constructing bus shelters in front of businesses could create parking problems and hurt the town’s appearance.

Instead, Mr. Russell suggested putting the bus stop on town-owned land to eliminate any conflict with local proprietors.

Town engineers have been reviewing the proposal and are scheduled to consult with the Town Board about its feasibility at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the Town Hall meeting room.
