Murray residents urged to weigh in on property maintenance law

Posted 15 December 2017 at 7:57 am


Next week on Tuesday December 19th at 6 p.m. the Town of Murray has scheduled a public hearing prior to taking action on the new “Level of Property Maintenance Law” proposed by Code Enforcement Officer Ron Vendetti.

Last year the same basic law was proposed and no action taken as the community was outraged. The issue is now curiously back at year end just before the Christmas holiday.

The two attached links show the Town of Murray’s proposed law (click here) and the Town of Greece’s law (click here).

They appear to be the same and not simply NYS Property Maintenance in a computer format as we are being told. Currently Murray has the New York State Property Maintenance Law on our books.

Why is our Republican Party Chairman Ron Vendetti comparing Murray to a Rochester City suburb and attempting to enact a more stringent zoning law than the State standard? Not very Republican.

This is your only opportunity to voice your opinion. It’s rather curious why it is even on the agenda just before Christmas and before the new “Team Murray” takes office.

It is an important issue and please attend if you are able.
