Just when advocates thought the Cortland County Legislature might act on a Dangerous Substances law, they go back on pause.
The county tells us the public hearing for the “Dangerous Substances” Local Law has been cancelled. The meeting had been scheduled for 6 p.m. on December 16th.
Patrick Perfetti, Cortland District Attorney and Cortland County Sheriff, Mark Helms, want another look to put the finishing touches on the proposed local law and hope to get it ready for consideration again next month.
In a release from the County Clerk’s Office, the County Attorney has reviewed the proposed local law and, in consultation with the District Attorney and Sheriff, has determined that the law is not in final form. The County Attorney anticipates, that a final version of the proposed local law will be completed by the second week of January.
Then the proposed law will be presented to the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee and Legislature.
We’ll let you know when the new public hearing is set for this proposed law in January.
