Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward P. Romaine will be sworn in Tuesday after his original inauguration last Thursday was postponed by a blizzard-like snowstorm.

The ceremony is largely symbolic as Romaine, a Republican, took an official oath of office last Thursday, allowing him to conduct Brookhaven business.

The 3 p.m. swearing-in ceremony at Town Hall in Farmingville also will include Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and town council members. But the 4th Council District won’t have representation because the results of that election are in dispute.

A winner has not been declared in the race between incumbent Democrat Connie Kepert, whose second term as the district’s councilwoman expired on Dec. 31, and Republican challenger Michael A. Loguercio Jr. The council district includes Bellport, Yaphank, Farmingville, Gordon Heights and parts of Ridge and Coram.

Tuesday’s ceremony is open to the public.
