• The East Hampton Town Board will vote on a resolution seeking requests for proposals for a new town hall complex at their 6:30 p.m. meeting at town hall tonight. The old brick town hall, directly behind a complex of historic buildings that are serving as the new town hall, will likely need to be torn down and replaced with new town offices to accomodate town workers currently working in a complex on Pantigo Place, which would be sold. The board will also hold a public hearing on an update to the town’s housing implementation plan. The full agenda is online here.
• The building that houses the literati landmark Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor was just listed for $2.9 million with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Canio’s owners Maryanne Calandrille and Kathryn Szoka rent the 886-square-foot storefront in a building that also houses three apartments.
• The Riverhead Town Board plans to talk about breweries and rental permits at their 10 a.m. work session this morning. Then they’re going to discuss contracts and litigation in executive session! Their full agenda is online here.
