Unless pumpkins are your produce of choice, there’s no better time of year than July to purchase fruits and vegetables grown on the North Fork.
The blueberries are being picked, the corn is being shucked and the local cucumber, cauliflower and tomato seasons have begun.
The Riverhead Town Board on Tuesday night unanimously approved the transfer of $104,000 from town reserves to fund beefed up police protection downtown.
Another measure to transfer $400,000 from reserves to pay for costs associated with a new town police contract was also approved at the Town Board meeting, with Councilwoman Jodi Giglio voting against the move.
As expected, the board also OK’d a lawsuit settlement with Taste of Country, a farm stand on Sound Avenue that had been operating as a deli.
The meeting ended about 8:30 p.m., a half-hour before polls closed in the special election for county Legislature, a race in which Supervisor Sean Walter is the Republican candidate.
