There are only 500 parking spots at East Hampton Village beaches, so competition for stickers to park there is fierce. Sticker sales to nonresidents brings in about $1 million a year in revenue. Residents can get them free and so can their relatives, but that may be about to change. A hearing is scheduled for August 16 at 11AM to discuss whether to change the village code to require that relatives requesting a free beach pass demonstrate that they are related to a resident of the village, not just someone who owns property there.
