A public hearing will be held next month with in Lloyd Harbor's to clarify a village law limiting the amount of unregistered vehicles parked on residential property.
Village Mayor Leland Hairr said he has received numerous complaints about one village residence with up to 13 cars on the property. The proposed ordinance would rework a current law regarding "rubbish."
Village Attorney John Ritter said he's been reworking the law's language to include "unregistered vehicles." If approved, the new law would impose a two-vehicle limit on unregistered vehicles parked outside garages; any additional unregistered vehicles would be considered a violation.
The majority of board members favored the proposal, though Trustee William Bardo asked if the phrase "other machinery" be added, so lawnmowers, ATVs, and similar machines could be included in the law. Ritter said he would consider adding the phrase in.
Also at the meeting, Hairr announced the resignation of ailing Trustee Ralph Alfenito. No replacement was named by the mayor.
Lloyd Harbor Police Chief Charles Flynn recognized the work of officer Jared Morrissey in catching what he described as two potential thieves in the village. Flynn said Morrissey was on patrol when he came across two men carrying backpacks, one containing gloves, a flashlight, and some pieces of broken jewelry. One of the men was arrested on drug charges, according to Flynn.
