Back up documents to agenda items can be found under Agendas on the Village website.
1. Review Local Law Introductory 8 of 2020 to amend Chapter 179 of the Village Code, Property Maintenance, to clarify areas which need to be maintained. The existing law requires the property owners to cut/destroy all weeds or bush on their lot or land. The amended law inserts language to read “… all weeds or bush on undeveloped areas of the lot..”
2. Review Local Law Introductory 9 of 2020 to amend Chapter 223 of the Village Code, Water, to grant the Board of Trustees the authority to reduce water rents in the case of a documented leak that was repaired. Currently, the Board of Trustees does not have the authority to reduce the rates on an individual case.
3. Review Local Law Introductory 10 of 2020 to amend Chapter 168 of the Village Code, Parks and Recreation Areas, to regulate the use of unmanned aircraft in Village-owned parks. The proposed law varies from an earlier version discussed over the summer. This law would regulate rather than prohibit unmanned aircraft of any kind including model airplanes and drones in Village parks. It would require registration with the Village, adherence to park hours and rules, adherence to FAA rules and regulations, and may require insurance in some cases.
