In Special Session...

...following Monday afternoon's Executive Ses­sion, the Westhampton Beach Village Board did what they should have done last week: appoint Village Attorney Hermon Bishop to respond to Winhaven Realty's Article 78 pro­ceeding against the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Mayor Conrad Teller had offered the same res­olution at December's meeting, but couldn't get a second to bring it to a vote.

The delaying tactic appeared to be caused by Trustee Joan Levan's desire to see if a compro­mise might not be worked out between the applicant and the ZBA to grant a greater parking space variance so that a structure more to her liking could be created on Old Riverhead Road.

(After 3½ years in Village government, one would think the woman had a better understanding of the land-use process.)

Mrs. Levan, who not so secretly believes that she knows what's best for all aspects of the Village, has been very much in favor of Win­haven's "major face-lift" undertaking.

In short, the Empress of Oneck is irked the ZBA didn't approve Win­haven's application.

Government: If you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions.

You wag!
