RECAP: Board talks $13M armory renovation



The Riverhead Town Board discussed at Thursday’s work session the feasibility of converting the former Armory located on Route 58 into a police and justice court headquarters. The cost of that conversion had been reported to be $11.3 million and the project, so far, hasn’t gained support from the majority of the Town Board.

On Thursday, the board learned that the renovation would cost $13 million if they decide to move forward. The board decided to move forward with studies of other alternatives.

Other items up for discussion included: alarm code fees, sale of town property and the Riverhead Tomcats use of the EPCAL ballfields for its home games.
