A Southampton attorney representing Greenport commercial fishing captain Sid Smith has requested that the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office investigate the village’s method of collecting and sharing information.

Attorney Dan Rodgers submitted a complaint to the DA last Thursday after the village clerk denied his client several Freedom of Information Law requests. It claims the village has failed to keep accurate long-term records of its collections fees from users of the railroad dock on Third Street.
