Sag Harbor Village Board To Meet on Pending Septic, Waterways Proposals


The Sag Harbor Village Board of Trustees will meet for a work session on Wednesday, January 23, at 2 p.m. at village hall.

The village clerk announced the work session on Tuesday afternoon, one day before it was set to take place.

The board will review two proposed local laws. One would require “innovative and alternative on-site wastewater treatment systems” for new construction and major repairs of existing septic systems. The other would update the village waterways law to reflect the state’s expansion of village jurisdiction into former state waters to give it control over its entire mooring field.

It covers the operation of vessels, aircraft, fees and permits at village facilities; prohibited discharges, no-discharge zones, hazards to navigation; and mooring areas, including permits and restrictions.

Both proposals were the subjects of public hearings at the January 8 Village Board meeting.

The board is also expected to go over documents related to state-mandated environmental reviews of the proposed laws, and “any other business duly brought before the board,” according to the announcement.

The village municipal building is at 55 Main Street.
