 Press Release

 

 

          As Claude Raines in “Casablanca” put it so much more eloquently than I ever could, I am “shocked, shocked” to read in the Reporter editorial this morning the disgusting cover up of the Deer & Tick survey until after the election.

 

          I notified Chief Jim Read a few minutes ago to work with Beau Payne to do whatever it takes, overtime etc., to have the survey results in my colleagues’ hands October 29 or 30, for inclusion on the October 31 work session agenda.

 

          It is an extraordinarily crowded agenda, with 2018 budget, 2016 audit, considering the septic rebate program and other aquifer protection measures, and discussing the short term rental litigation. But we will just put in the time and get the job done.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to
Shelter Island Town’s Internet site.
 
 
  We have developed this website to provide you with important information about Town government - - which will enable you to become a more informed citizen. We have also included a Community Calendar--let us know if your group is planning a community event.


A recent addition to this website is our town's homeowner handbook. I believe that you will find this to be a useful and informative guide to living on our special island.

You will find minutes of the various appointed boards such as the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals. There's a directory of all elected officials, department heads, committee members.

We are also very pleased to provide you with a special feature - - the entire Shelter Island Town Code - - at no cost and user friendly. Our site also has useful links to other web sites for visitor and tourist information.

Finally, the recent news section of this site has information about new town plans and initiatives. Email me your thoughts about them. Keep checking to find out what's new.

I invite you to familiarize yourself with our web site, and to return and visit often. We look forward to your feedback so we may continue to expand and improve the content of this site.
