Ready, Set, Go....
Ready, Set, Go….

Good Morning!

• Suffolk County will be spraying to reduce mosquito larvae in several creeks on the East End between 5 and 8 a.m. this morning. The county is not recommending residents take precautions against the spraying because the helicopter will be flying very low over the marshes and taking other precautions to control drift into inhabited areas. More information on the spraying is on the county’s website here.

• There was a big hubbub in New Suffolk on the North Fork Saturday morning over the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund’s plan to renovate and re-open the old Galley Ho restaurant. About a third of the population of New Suffolk showed up, and very few people had nice things to say about the restaurant. The Beacon’s full story is online here.

• Have you gone to see the North Fork Community Theatre’s production of “Into the Woods?” If not, you still have two weekends to check out this fine show. The Beacon’s full review is online here.

• School Budget votes are today. Check in with The Beacon’s voter guide to find out more about the vote in your school district.

• The East Hampton Town Board will be discussing alcohol on beaches, town hunting lands, the finances of the airport and the town’s energy goals at their 10 a.m. work session today. Their full agenda is online here.

• The Southold Town Board will be discussing applying for Environmental Protection Fund grants to complete the comprehensive plan and a coastal resiliency plan at their 9 a.m. work session today. Their afternoon meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. Their full agenda for both meetings is online here.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.
