The Riverhead Town Board unanimously approved a resolution Wednesday night co-sponsoring a new indoor farmers market that will open Feb. 1 in downtown Riverhead. The farmers market is being co-sponsored by the Business Improvement District Management Association, which has already approved $3,000 for the project.

The Town Board also voted to scheduling public hearings on a proposed new definition of “breezeway,” an issue that relates back to a controversy at the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport, and on a proposal requiring pumpout facilities for new swimming pools near wetlands.

The board also accepted the retirement of longtime Police Detective Sergeant Joseph Loggia.
