Flower Hill Amends the Village Code
Several local laws were adopted on Dec. 4, at the last meeting of the Flower Hill Board of Trustees. If you are thinking of having a fireworks display, be sure that you apply for a permit. This is one of the changes that the new local law (#4 ) requires. It is no longer permissible to set off a fireworks display within the village boundaries nor is it permissible to store a dumpster in your driveway without a permit (local law# 7) or to have a temporary storage facility without prior permission from the village (local law #7). Local law #6 requires that the perimeter of a site being used for construction, renovation or demolition, if certain conditions exist, must be encircled by a temporary chain link fence. Specific fence requirements and site descriptions are available at the Village Hall. The new local laws were adopted unanimously by the trustees and the mayor and are designed to improve the quality of life in the village.
