The Village of New Paltz public hearing on a law to cut the window of time during which snow must be shoveled to 12 hours after the cessation of the storm from the present 24 was again continued after no one showed up to comment last week. There have now been three sessions of this hearing, with exactly one person sharing their views. If trustees were to vote now, the only testimony to weigh would be opposed to the measure, but they are hopeful that if they continue to keep the hearing open, other residents will eventually show up and have their say.
Trustee Don Kerr observed that interest in this law may increase after the first significant snowfall.
