ISSUE TABLED UNTIL AUG. 19
CHERRY VALLEY – Twenty citizens addressed a proposed law that would ban farm animals in the village at a public hearing last evening before the Cherry Valley Village Board.
After the hearing’s close, Local Law #1 – titled “A Local Law to Repeal Local Law #2 of the Year 1986, as Amended by Local Law #2 of 1994, and to Prohibit the Harboring of Farm Animals and Fowl” – was tabled to be discussed at the Aug. 19 trustees’ meeting.
The Local Law #1 would repeal at 1986 law allowing farm animals on parcels within the village limits. It would provide for an undefined waiver process to allow farm animals; and there would be no appeal process if the Village Board granted a waiver or not.
The penalty for violation would be a $250 fine and up to five days in jail.
