Shelter Island Town meetings still held every 3 weeks
While most towns on Long Island hold town board meetings twice a month, Shelter Island sticks to a regular schedule of holding a meeting every three weeks, almost all of them on Fridays.
At the board’s organizational meeting on Thursday, its first resolution was to set the meeting schedule for the year — a schedule that has one board session this month but two meetings in February, the shortest month of the year. There also will be two meetings each in April, June and August.
The odd schedule also will allow routine town board activities to finish early for 2013, since the last Shelter Island town board meeting of the year will be on Dec. 6.
A special meeting could always be added, since the town board will hold three work sessions in December, the last on Dec. 17. Riverhead’s town board, in contrast, has adopted a meeting schedule that has its last session on Dec. 31. When the board adopted the schedule, several members said that the date was likely to change.
