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, October 25, 2016, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as can be heard to consider the adoption of Local Law #8 of the year 2016, which is a Local Law to amend the current Village Code, Section 369 pertaining to boat berths.

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 Sikowitz explained proposed Local Law #8 of 2016.

This law addresses necessary updates to our Dock Regulations, such as clarifying the order of priority for assigning boat berths, and removing statements regarding fishing licenses, which are not issued by the Village.  More importantly, however, this law addresses the issue of lines being left behind when boat berths are vacated for winter months, which interferes with ice breaking efforts.  This Local Law would enable the Village to impose fines if lines are not removed from vacated berths, as well as permit the Village to remove and discard those lines left behind.

The meeting was opened to the public: No one was present to approach the Board.

On the motion of Trustee Muldowney, seconded by Trustee Basile and unanimously carried, it was

RESOLVED to reserve decision.

Meeting adjourned 7:10 p.m.
