YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Town of Yorktown could soon take a stand against puppy mills.

The Yorktown Town Board scheduled an Aug. 2 public hearing at Tuesday's work session to discuss a local law that would ban pet stores from selling dogs and cats bred in puppy mills, according to Citizens For An Informed Yorktown.

Other agenda items included:

  • Tree law: The discussion was taken off the agenda at the last minute.
  • Feral cats: Pending a meeting with the volunteer who administers the program, the board postponed voting to approve an additional $500 for the program.
  • Unleashed animals at Turkey Mountain: Supervisor Michael Grace advised the board the police and the animal control officer have been searching for two unleashed animals (possibly dogs or coyotes) at Turkey Mountain.
  • Sewers: The board is moving forward on a plan to move about 28 sewered homes in the Jefferson Park neighborhood from the Hallocks Mill Sewer District to the Peekskill Sanitary Sewer District.
