Good Morning and Happy Tumbleweed Tuesday!

• First and foremost, if you’ve made it through the holiday weekend alive, the Montauk Chamber of Commerce wants to celebrate Tumbleweed Tuesday with YOU. All are welcome to join in celebration at their free Tumbleweed Tuesday concert this afternoon on the Montauk Green from 4 to 6 p.m., featuring the Nancy Alas Project, free hot dogs, water, soda and chips and free beach balls for the kids. Ben and Jerry’s will also be selling ice cream. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and relax on the village green on this special day.

• The East Hampton Town Board will discuss several hot topics at their 10 a.m. work session this morning, including a recommendation of an engineer for the East Hampton Airport, an informational meeting on the town’s proposed rental registry, the Army Corps of Engineers’ Montauk beach restabilization project and a water quality restoration plan for Georgica Pond. Their full agenda is online here.

• The Army Corps of Engineers have slightly bumped up their proposed beach stabilization project in downtown Montauk, which they’re expecting to begin work on this coming January. The Beacon’s full report is online here.

• Southold Town plans to begin setting up a detour for their work on the Bay Avenue Bridge in East Marion today, and contractors will soon begin work on the bulkhead at the beach at Gull Pond in Greenport.The Beacon’s full report is online here.

• Slow Food East End is looking for new master farmers to help advise school gardens throughout the East End this school year. Each master farmer will cover approximately six to eight schools in a geographically designated area (on the North Fork or South Fork) but can sometimes work on special projects that align with their talents and skill sets. Master farmers are expected to offer advice that will promote the sustainability and success of garden programs. More information about the program is online here.

• The Beacon’s Week in Review was delivered piping hot to inboxes throughout the East End in the wee hours of Sunday morning. To get your very own copy each week, sign up here.

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