A proposed garbage district for Flanders, Riverside and Northampton appears to be heading for the dumpster itself.

The Southampton Town Board is expected to vote Tuesday afternoon on a resolution to reject all eight bids it has received from garbage carting companies, Councilman Brad Bender said.

The Town Board doesn’t intend to seek new bids on the proposal, at least in the near future, and won’t proceed with the garbage district proposal this year, he said. The idea of a garbage district could still be revived in the future, perhaps in a wider area, but the plan won’t be revived anytime soon, he said.

A proposal to institute a garbage district in the hamlets of Flanders, Riverside and Northampton will be discussed before the Waters Edge Civic Association at 7 p.m. Friday at the Crohan Community Center in Flanders.

Christine Fetten, Southampton Town’s Director of Municipal Works, will be the speaker.

The proposal would have to be approved by property owners within the proposed district before it could take effect. Town officials have yet to determine when that vote would be.  (more…)

Southampton Town has signed a contract with a “master developer” as part of a multi-pronged approach of revitalizing the long-beleaguered Riverside area that’s just a short walk away from downtown Riverhead, which has made its own strides as of late.

The development firm, Renaissance Downtowns of Plainview, has also leased office space on Peconic Avenue and is advertising for local employees to man the office. (more…)
