Town Board to Take Up Contracts, Appointments

The Huntington Town Board convenes Tuesday night to consider several actions, including the appointment of a deputy maritime director and the awarding of contracts for storm cleanup.

Marcus Pitts of Looks Great Services, said his company is challenging a decision to award any of the 10 bids to Green Velvet Tree of Bay Shore, saying that the latter company isn’t eligible.  According to the latest agenda, the board will consider awarding 3 of the 10 bids to Looks Great, 3 to Green Velvet, and 4 to B&B Maintenance of Brookhaven. Papers objecting to Green Velvet were filed with the town attorney and town purchasing office and say Green Velvet’s bids weren’t the lowest or the company was otherwise ineligible because of a lack of an apprenticeship program.

Garrett Chelius, who works in the town planning department and is active in the town’s boating community, is expected to be named deputy maritime director at Tuesday’s meeting.

The Town board meets at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. The meeting can also be viewed online. See the town website at for access.
