Should the Town Board adopt a local law imposing a six-month moratorium on issuing new mining and excavation permits?
Town residents can express their thoughts on that question at Monday’s public hearing on Local Law 1.
Depending on the comments received, the Town Board could vote to adopt the local law after the hearing.
“This only affects any future mining operations, not existing ones,’’ Supervisor Gary Westfall said. “We need time to incorporate the mining moratorium from our new comprehensive plan into the town zoning code,’’ he said.
