Preview: Riverhead Town Board set to vote on YMCA deal

The Riverhead Town Board is expected to approve an agreement Tuesday allowing the Peconic YMCA group to build a Y facility on town-owned land in Calverton.

The Town Board meeting starts at 2 p.m. in Riverhead Town Hall.

The board is also expected to issue a request for proposals for companies to do billing for the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance.

There are three public hearings schedule.

One hearing would make St. John’s Place a two-way street, the second hearing would ban left turns out of East Avenue onto Northville Turnpike and the third would eliminate the requirement that police have 20 years of service in order to qualify for a retirement incentive program, so long as they are eligible to retire.

That hearing proposes other changes to the retirement incentive program as well, such as a payment of $1,000 per year of service for up to $25,000.
