To the editor:

This Town Board continues to provide an excess of comedic material to its residents. This board, and several of its predecessors, have allowed Route 58 to become not only the eyesore that it is, but have fully supported all of these mega-store projects to encroach within 10 feet of the property line of private citizens for decades.

And now, when virtually 100 percent of Route 58 has been built out, or is in the process of being so, they determine it is finally the time to consider more restrictive buffer zones. Myself and all my fellow citizens continue to laugh — what else to do, but cry? — at the nonsensical behavior of these board members, who presumably have the responsibility to protect the citizens of Riverhead.
