PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a Public Hearing will be held at the Municipal Building, 153 West Main Street, Babylon, NY, on Tuesday, January 8th, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as can be heard to consider the adoption of Local Law #1 of the year 2019, a Local Law to amend Village code, Chapter 122 Article II, regarding Public Waters.

Complete text of the above Local Law is available in the office of the Village Clerk.

All interested persons should appear at the above time and place, and they will be given an opportunity to be heard.

Attorney Gerard Glass explained that this Local Law will enable residents to have free and easy navigation in the waterways in the Village of Babylon as well as enable the removal of dangerous vessels in the waterways.

There are many instances in which residents find it unsafe or extremely difficult to navigate; the Board agreed that this Local Law was a good and prudent amendment to the code and is a good tool to survey where people are not in compliance.

The meeting was opened to the public; the following people spoke in favor of this local law:

James O’Rourke, 25 Lucinda Drive

Judy Jedrlinic, 51 Wilson Dr.

Paul Reese, surveyed situation at O’Rourke Residence

No one spoke in opposition to this proposed Local Law.

RESOLVED to reserve decision.
