A decades-old law in Southold Town could soon be eliminated to ease the process for residents to obtain deer hunting permits following a recommendation from the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
The proposed legislation before the Southold Town Board would eliminate a 1960s law that requires hunters to receive a special permit from the town clerk’s office in addition to a state-issued hunting permit.

Keith Kraus and Matt Michel know how to bring the party.
Since 2009, Michel has been hitting the road to serve up gourmet pizzas at parties and festivals aboard the North Fork’s favorite mobile pizza company, Rolling in Dough’s retrofitted 1943 K-6 International Harvester.

The park district says it must either sell this parking lot off Pike Street or develop it as parkland. (Credit: Barbaraellen Koch)
Southold Town has set aside $250,000 to purchase the Pike Street parking lot from the Mattituck Park District, Supervisor Scott Russell said Tuesday.
The purchase would have to go to voters to approve through a referendum.
The park district has been hoping the town would purchase the parking lot since November, when the district discovered it shouldn’t be keeping the lot, citing a post World War II-era provision in its bylaws.
The 1948 referendum states that in order for the district to maintain ownership of the lot, it would need to develop a park around it. But that hasn’t happened in the nearly 70 years the district has owned the property and no plan is in place to do so in the future. (more…)
