An air of heavy skepticism was evident on the part of Huntington residents at a contentious public hearing held by the Town Tuesday, April 24 to discuss a controversial proposal to create a new zoning district known as “maritime.” In fact, tempers ran so high at the hearing that Supervisor Frank Petrone determined that a public information meeting was necessary to explain the proposal before the Town Board votes on it. A date has not yet been set but the Supervisor said it would likely be in May.

County plan for busy intersection causes concern


By KELLY CAMPBELL

It seemed, however, to have the reverse effect and several members of the Board and many members of the audience were very vocal in their displeasure.
