     Supervisor Jim Dougherty happily announces that the Town has hired Shelter Islander Reed Karen to succeed Bill Banks as Building Inspector. “Bill is retiring on June 17th after serving the Town as Building Inspector for 21 years. We are going to miss Bill. We appreciate his contributions and feel we have found a very able replacement in Reed Karen”

 

            Reed, who moved to Shelter Island 14 years ago, has been working in construction since he was a teenager, as a laborer, carpenter and furniture maker, most recently operating his own shop in Wainscott doing all aspects of high end millwork. Reed commented "I'm very happy to have been brought on by the Town, and will do my part to serve the Shelter Island community in my new position and respect its traditions."

 

            “We are all looking forward to working with Reed and feel he fully understands the Shelter Island culture of respectful attention to homeowner requests while enforcing our Town Code for the benefit of all of us”, Dougherty concluded.

 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.
