(NEWSTEAD) Newstead Town Board is looking for public input regarding Local Law No 2. Local Law No 2, if passed, is an opt out of the recent legislation making cannabis legal in New York State. You can read the proposed law HERE. In other words, no one would be able to open any type of cannabis dispensary, bake shop, etc here.
The hearing is open to the public this Monday, November 8th at 7:25 at Newstead Town Hall regarding this issue. I sent a letter to Mr. Supervisor asking if the Board would hold the hearing via Zoom so that people that are either quarantined at home, or just don’t want to be in a crowd indoors right now could participate. Covid numbers are going up right now. Mr. Supervisor sent me the following response:
Thank you for your comments. Residents can send mail or email comments to the town to be entered into the minutes of the public hearing before the public hearing if they do not wish to attend the meeting. We will not be zooming the public hearing.
They can send them to my email address and I’ll make sure they are entered into the minutes of the public hearing.
