Two days after the Sag Harbor Village Board linking Sag Harbor and Greenport, the Greenport Village Board will hold a public hearing on the issue during a special meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. at the red schoolhouse on Front Street.
The Village of Sag Harbor approved a change in their zoning code to allow the ferry during this trial run. The law accommodates President Geoffrey Lynch and Response Marine principal Jim Ryan's plans for the Peconic Bay Water Jitney, a seasonal passenger ferry service.
After studying the impact on the village that the ferry has this summer, the Sag Harbor Village Board will decide whether to permit ferries again in the future.
