Summer in the Hamptons has arrived and with an increased number of calls for police officers and ambulance personnel.
Chief Ed Ecker said there was a typical number of noise complaints, but one place that stuck out in particular was , also home to Beaumarchais restaurant this summer, on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton.
The department was called there three times over the weekend; on Friday at nearly midnight, May 27 at 2:26, 3:03 a.m., and 5:30 p.m. Only once was the noise above the limit and a summons was issued, Ecker said.
One reader wrote-in after she spotted trash — mainly large plastic cups — on Three Mile Harbor Road, infront of the nighclub. Photos taken Sunday morning at around 7 a.m., show there was some trash strewn about on the side of the road.
Reprentatives from the EMM Group, which owns the East Hampton club, did not immediately return a call for comment.
Overall the town police responded to 350 calls for his department's service over the three-day holiday. "There were no major accidents, which was great," Ecker said on Tuesday, adding that there were only 11 in his jurisdiction.
Emergency medical service volunteers were kept busy this weekend. Ecker said there were about 45 calls over the weekend, which he said was not an unusual number, but a significant number nonetheless.
It still remains to be seen how many driving while intoxicated arrests the . Members of the task force are going to critique the weekend's activities on Wednesday, Ecker said.
