Nov 20th Town Hall Meeting

At the Oct. 9th 2007, Town Hall board meeting, the town of Southold passed the following resolution:

“The Town of Southold will holding a public hearing at the Southold Town Hall, 53095 Main Road, Southold, New York, on the 20th of November, 2007 at 4:35 p.m. at which time all interested persons will be given an opportunity to be heard as to the changes in Local Law 275. “

As a tax paying resident of the Town of Southold, I have read the changes to Local Law 275. I feel these changes will adversely affect our waterfront usage rights.

The law requires that “We the People” have the right to be heard on the subject, but the Town Hall Board is attempting to silence the public. They have scheduled the meeting for the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, knowing full well that it would be impossible for a great many concerned Citizens to attend the meeting because they will be out of town to celebrate Thanksgiving with family, an American tradition.

This board is supposed to represent the People of Southold, but something has seem to gone awry. The Board is attempting to eliminate public input, and questions should be raised concerning who the Board is representing.

The Town Hall Board MUST consider rescheduling this meeting for a time when there is a possibility for participation by those affected by the changes to Local Law 275. (This letter has also been sent to the editor of The Suffolk Times)
