The Riverhead Town Board agreed Thursday to accept sealed bids for the town’s East Lawn building, which currently houses the town historian’s office, the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce and other offices.

The Town Board discussed the plans at its regularly scheduled 10 a.m. work session in Riverhead Town Hall.

If the East Main Street building is sold, some offices would then be moved elsewhere, possibly the vacant 2nd Street firehouse, officials said.

The board also discussed rules of procedure for speaking at official Town Board meetings, and whether to promote recreation department superintendent Ray Coyne to provisional Parks and Recreation administrator at a $102,000 salary.

Mr. Coyne currently makes about $94,000.

Board members planned discuss the promotion in executive session.
