Thiele, Palumbo Ask DEC To Revoke Sand Land Permit

State Assemblyman Fred W.

Property owners voted overwhelmingly for the ... by Stephen J. Kotz

Last spring, a five-judge panel of the New York State Appellate Division ruled the DEC had violated state law when it issued the permit in 2019 after a five-year seesaw battle between the sand mine, which is operated by Wainscott Sand and Gravel, and Southampton Town, neighbors and environmental groups, who have ... 28 Sep 2021 by Stephen J.
