Questions Raised in Montauk Erosion-Prevention Work
November 14, 2012
East Hampton Star: More than a dozen large pre-cast concrete rings, commonly used for septic systems, were placed in a row on the downtown Montauk public beach last week in front of the Royal Atlantic and Ocean Beach motels just after Hurricane Sandy had come and gone, raising questions about whether town law is being followed as East Hampton Town property owners seek to address erosion on pummeled shores.
Town Councilwoman Sylvia Overby said this week that Patrick Gunn, the head of the town Public Safety Division, had reported that 4 verbal permits had been issued by Tom Preiato, the senior building inspector, for emergency erosion-control work on town beaches, with written permits to be obtained as soon as possible.
