Dennis L. Coyle
Dennis L. Coyle, 80, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2017. He and his wife, Else, own a home on Shelter Island with a beautiful hedge that resembles the waves of the ocean.
Dennis was known by many locals as “the fisherman in the white Ford Mustang convertible.” He could be seen driving his convertible to his favorite fishing spots at Menhaden Lane and Kissing Rock with a fishing pole sticking out from the back seat. Dennis always had his 5-gallon bucket ready to be filled with a striper, fluke or cocktail blue fish. (more…)

The Town Board meets almost every Tuesday of the year in work sessions and presides over regular meetings about twice a month, taking on issues for discussion and drafting and voting on new legislation.
In 2016, the board aired concerns on, among other topics, preservation of the Island’s heritage and site plan review for new commercial ventures; crafted a budget for 2017; looked into the need — or not — of allocating extra funds for road paving; and discussed the short-term rental situation that consumed the board’s time and energy from early June and is still unresolved.
