Attorney Gerard Glass explained this amendment to the bicycle code and the purpose for instituting it, which is primarily to deal with the irresponsible use of bicycles. This amendment sets the framework to impose charges for impound, storage and administrative fees, the amount to be set by resolution of the Board of Trustees.
The Board agreed that this is a necessary step to strengthen the code in controlling the misuse of bicycles in the Village. The Mayor thanked Village Code Enforcement and the Suffolk County Police for all they are doing to promote safety in the Village, especially with the bicycle situation.
On the motion of Trustee Bencivenga, seconded by Trustee Davida and unanimously carried, it was
RESOLVED to approve Local Law 4 of 2020.**
