That tabled resolution from last evening...

Preamble

Yes, the matter of Westhampton Beach actually discussing Hampton Jitney coming into the Village was discussed, once, at the May 2015 Work Session, one I apparently missed.

This was discovered during brief colloquy with Mayor Maria Moore and Village Clerk Elizabeth Lindtvit during which it was also learned that the intervening eleven months the Mayor never once contacted Hampton Jitney's current "land­lord," Casa Basso, to ask where it all went wrong.

Uh oh!

The actual resolution
2. APPROVE HAMPTON JITNEY BUS STOPS WITHIN THE VILLAGE

WHEREAS, there are currently no bus stops located within the Village of Westhampton Beach for Hampton Jitney busses going eastbound or westbound; and

WHEREAS, Hampton Jitney desires to establish two bus stops within the Village, one for eastbound drop off at the existing Suffolk County bus shelter located at or near 35 Mill Road, and one for westbound pick up located in front of the Village Green located at or near 32 Mill Road, and to install appropriate "bus stop" signs at no cost to the Village and at Hampton Jitney's expense; and

WHEREAS, Hampton Jitney will not be making use of any Village property but instead intends to stop for pick up and drop off on the public roadways; and

WHEREAS, Hampton Jitney has confirmed that it maintains insurance coverage with respect to all of its bus stops and services; and

WHEREAS, as a gesture of good faith, Hampton Jitney desires to provide annual remittance to the Village in amount of $1,000.00 each June 1st and to help support one event of the Village's choosing each year through the on-board distribution of materials or other suitable manner; it is hereby

RESOLVED that Hampton Jitney is permitted to establish two bus stops, one for eastbound drop off at the existing Suffolk County bus shelter located at or near 35 Mill Road, and one for westbound pick up located in front of the gazebo located at or near 32 Mill Road; and it is further

RESOLVED that Hampton Jitney will install appropriate "bus stop" signs at both the eastbound and westbound stops at no cost to the Village and at Hampton Jitney's expense; and it is further

RESOLVED that this permission is subject to Hampton Jitney's offer to pay the Village an annual remittance of $1,000.00 every June 1st and to help support one event of the Village's choosing by the on-board distribution of materials or other suitable manner; and it is further RESOLVED that this permission is revocable by the Village upon 90 days' notice to Hampton Jitney.

Past behavior predicts future performance, so this def­i­nitely is back-to-the-drawing-board time.
