Riverhead town hall
Riverhead Town has hired the nonprofit National Development Council for technical assistance on three projects, including a transit-oriented development project planned for the Court Street parking lot, the development of a the Main Street town square and the potential lease of the former Kmart building for a municipal complex.
Asked if the removal of the wall means members of the public can attend town hall meetings in person, Riverhead Supervisor Yvette Aguiar said the public has not been prohibited from attending those meetings in person. The town's emergency orders and meeting notices say otherwise.
