With my colleague Deon J. Hampton, I cover the Town of Brookhaven and its villages and hamlets. What we try to offer is an ongoing chronicle of an enormous town — that stretches from the Long Island Sound to the Atlantic Ocean — as it grapples with development pressures, environmental issues and the challenge of maintaining programs in the face of the state tax cap. You’ll see us scribbling notes at municipal meetings, so stop by and say hello.
