Springs Residents Sound Off About Illegal Multi-Family Housing

Can't you telephone East Hampton Family Services or Child Protective Services? If you believe there are children or adults at risk in an overcrowded, legally- or illegally-occupied house, one call is all that it should take. My understanding is that, by law, social workers have to check the situation out and ENTER the house to see for themselves. They have to write a report. Somewhere in that report won't there be a headcount and an evaluation of living conditions? Children should not be subjected to overcrowded and dangerous living conditions. Why has no one called family services? Anyone agree this is a good idea? Anyone tried this?" Jan 17, 11 3:20 PM

Montauk Residents File $25 Million Lawsuit Over Erosion

When the Town of East Hampton has a 25 million dollar law suit against which to defend itself, you and I are going to foot the bill for that defense through increased taxes. So while I am sympathetic to anyone who loses his or her house for any reason, I'm guessing those 18 homeowners in Montauk don't have our best interests at heart or much sympathy for us."

Springs School Board Talks Cuts

Sorry, it can't be all about the kids. Budgets also have to be about the impact on other, equally deserving, members of the community that is Springs: single-family households, widows & widowers, fixed income residents, families slipping more and more behind economically every month or barely making ends meet. And yes, it has to be about folks who have selflessly paid their school taxes and who no longer have or never had children in the school system. Just once I would like to have one of those self-righteous and sanctimonious teachers walk to the mic at a district budget workshop and give more than 5 seconds of grudging lip-service to the plight of the rest of the community before launching into a transparent, personal promotional campaign to save his or her own "critically important" class . . . and skin."

Around East Hampton Town Hall: Illegal Overcrowding Still An Issue, Springs Residents Say

It was MALICIOUS, UNKIND, and UNNECESSARY to post that 2003 information about Mr. Buda. We do not know the facts, nor are they our business, nor does Mr. Buda put himself forward as an attorney.

I, for one, am very grateful to Mr. Buda for the enormous effort he is making on behalf of our quality of life in Springs.

(Thank you, Mr. Buda.) " Feb 28, 12 5:30 PM

Springs Resident Calls For East Hampton Councilwoman Theresa Quigley To Resign In Wake Of "Nazis" Comment

David Buda has a full-time, paid job, Deb. You know that. You are the one who needs a job. You've got too much time on your hands. Stop trying to run a parallel government in this town.

Thanks to Springs Concerned Citizens and Town Code Enforcement, over 100 housing cases in Springs have been opened, 94 have gone to court and over 974 violations have been issued. Doesn't that prove to you, Board Watcher, the seriousness of the illegal overcrowding issue in Springs?

Be grateful, Board Watcher. Better yet, help with the Unoccupy Springs Movement, instead of ridiculing it. Be part of the solution." Mar 17, 12 7:52 AM
