In keeping with the holiday spirit, the board also approved allowing “holiday-type lights” and other decorations in various places throughout the town.

The board also authorized the East Northport Chamber of Commerce to place a menorah and Nativity scene on town property at the Northport railroad station during the same period.

The resolution was approved 5-0 at the Nov. 10 town board meeting.
