Board to discuss landfill debt, carbon monoxide monitors

The Riverhead Town Board will discuss a proposal to create a separate line on the tax bill for landfill debt at its work session Thursday. The town pays about $4 million in landfill debt per year, and that’s also the amount the town would have to cut to avoid a tax increase next year, officials say. 

The board also plans to discuss a proposal to require new commercial buildings to have carbon monoxide detectors. Several months ago, a man died and several customers were sickened by carbon monoxide poisoning at a restaurant in Huntington. The board will hear a proposal from a company called Briscoe Protective Services.

The meeting starts at 10 a.m. and News-Review reporter Tim Gannon will be live blogging, with assistance from intern Claire Leaden. Click below to follow or comment. See the full meeting agenda below that.
