East Hampton Adopts $81.9 MIllion Budget

The East Hampton Town Board unanimously approved an $81.9 million operating budget for 2020 that will hike the tax rate for residents by around 2 percent.

The final version of the law tamped down a steep fine schedule and eliminated the possibility of a jail ... 8 Nov 2019 by Michael Wright

LIPA Reveals Rate Costs For South Fork Wind Farm

The Long Island Power Authority this week released the details of its power purchase agreement for the planned South Fork Wind Farm, saying that the pricing structure has now become “stale” and no longer needs to be kept secret — as it had been until this week. Thomas Falcone, LIPA’s chief executive officer, said in a conference call on Monday that the authority had been protecting the pricing structure agreed to with Deepwater Wind in 2017 so as not to skew the bidding process for other wind farm projects being pursued by New York State. But with the SFWF pricing ... by Michael Wright
