Criticizes ‘The Devilish Details’ Of New Law for Village Dissolution

The sponsors call it the “Empowerment Act” for short, but local governments are calling it the “Disenfranchisement Act” because the sweeping legislation passed this June, going into effect in March 2010, requires voters to vote to dissolve or consolidate local government before they know whether such actions would save money, or not.

“There’s a lot of confusion about the Act and it’s up to you to educate your residents so they’ll know that signing a petition for dissolution sets into motion a complicated, expensive process where the cart is before the horse,” said Wade Beltramo, special counsel for the New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM) to a roomful of mayors and village officials from Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties at a NYCOM meeting held at Mineola High School on Oct. 29.

Debate on P.C. Richard Enlargement Nearly a Year Old

Since last December, P.C. Richard & Sons, the longtime appliance store chain in the New York area, has wanted to expand its Greenvale store. Meetings before the Town of North Hempstead board have taken place, but the council has time and time again postponed a decision on the application.
