Sea Cliff Village Board Rejects Metricom
The Sea Cliff Village Board met on Monday, July 17 to a very large audience of residents. After calling the meeting to order, Mayor Claudia Moyne read a resolution stating in part that after several meetings with Metricom, and several public hearings with the residents of the village, the Board of Trustees concluded that there is no need for the services Metricom is offering, especially considering that not one resident has come forward in support of the plan. The board agreed unanimously. Later, during the public comments section of the meeting, Joe Krupinski brought the subject up, first thanking Tom Crowley for all the information he brought to the public's attention regarding health risks involved with the Metricom System, and also to ask why the board-appointed technology committee found no reason to turn the offer down on the basis of its being a risk to the public health.
