In a meeting closed to the public, with two members participating remotely, the Riverhead Town Board unanimously approved a temporary lease agreement Tuesday to allow ULC Robotics to use a portion of the western runway at the Enterprise Park at Calverton to test drones at a monthly fee of $2,000.
The meeting was broadcast live on the town’s website and on Channel 22, the government channel.
The public was allowed to email or call in comments on any resolution on the agenda, but could not comment on items not on the agenda.
The board, in its capacity as the Community Development Agency, received two comments opposing the ULC Robotics agreement.
Supervisor Yvette Aquiar, Councilman Frank Beyrodt and Councilwoman Catherine Kent were present, seated with empty chairs between them, but board members Jodi Giglio and Tim Hubbard participated via phone, so they could hear and speak to other members.
