Town Board set to pay $162K more for EPCAL study

liveblogRiverhead Town Board members are voting Tuesday night on spending another $162,390 in order to complete a planning study at the Enterprise Park at Calverton, which is being done by Hauppauge-based planning firm Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, or VHB.

The Town Board originally entered into an agreement with VHB in February of 2011 for a $464,000 study, which is being used to subdivide land the town has owned since the 1990s.

But the town has used the firm for more work than was planned for in the original contract, Supervisor Sean Walter said.

Board members are also planning to vote on the 2014 budget, which calls for a 3 percent increase in spending from this year.
