YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Yorktown Board recently voted to have the town attorney review a proposed amendment to the “Animals” chapter of the Town Code that would prohibit commercial puppy mills after receiving a signed petition from residents against the practice.
The board plans to hold a hearing on the proposed law sometime in June.
Other items included:
- Appointments to the Ethics and Planning boards.
- Lexington Avenue rezoning Reconvened/Public hearing: The board reopened and then closed the hearing after hearing several comments from the public in opposition to the rezoning. The board will make copies of a draft resolution approving the rezoning for eight units for residents. The board will vote on the issue during its Tuesday, June 7, meeting.
- Industrial Development Authority: The board passed a home rule resolution in support of a state law, sponsored by Sen. Chris Murphy and Assemblyman Steve Katz, that would allow the town to re-establish an individual development account.
Courtesy of the floor:
- Dogs at YCCC track: New dog excrement signs have been erected.
- Roma Building: Supervisor Michael Grace hopes for action by the end of the month.
- Spectra Atlantic Bridge pipeline project: The board did not respond to the question.
- Industrial and Commercial Incentive Board: The board did not respond when asked if members have been appointed to the board.
