• East Hampton is proposing several changes to its taxicab license policies that have some cabbies concerned, especially since they’re hearing they’ll be facing competition from internet-based car services this summer. The town’s representatives say the changes are actually meant to help small businesses. The Beacon’s full story is online here.
