The Village Clerk read the legal notice:
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a Public Hearing will be held at the Municipal Building, 153 West Main Street, Babylon, NY, on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as can be heard to consider the adoption of proposed Local Law #2 of the year 2020, regarding a moratorium on 24-hour uses in the Business District.
Complete text of the above Local Law is available in the Office of the Village Clerk, on the Village website: www.villageofbabylonny.gov, or can be requested by calling the Village Clerk’s Office at (631) 669-1500.
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 proposed Local Law is a proactive measure the Board is considering in order to protect quality of life issues (litter, noise, etc.) for those residents living in or near the Business District. This will regulate uses but does not apply to restaurants, bars, and pubs. This one (1) year moratorium will allow the Board to consider legislation to address these restrictions.
The Mayor noted that there were no residents present to address the Board. Only members of the press from The Beacon and Newsday were present at the meeting.
On the motion of Trustee Muldowney, seconded by Trustee Silvestri and unanimously carried, it was
RESOLVED to reserve decision.
Meeting adjourned at 7:08 p.m.
