Jamesport Vineyard won town board approval Tuesday to establish a bistro use on the site of its Main Road winery.
A bistro is an allowed use by town board special permit in the Rural Corridor Zone.
The Glass Greenhouse in Jamesport is also seeking approval for a bistro at its Main Road site. Walter Gabrielsen told the town board during a public hearing Tuesday that he’d like to have a 15-seat bistro within the existing retail building. The hearing record is open until Aug. 17 for written comment.
Town officials Tuesday recognized the winners of the annual National Night Out poster contest and also the town labor-management committee’s employee of the quarter, Robin Halpin, a Riverhead Water District employee.

scheduled an Aug. 21 public hearing on a local law that would expand the term from two to four years for the office of town supervisor (see separate story);
