Councilman Bliek asked if it makes a difference where on the property the junk is. Art Williams, Town Attorney, stated if it is enclosed and not visible, it would not be a problem. Some municipalities have issues with stuff piled up on open porches. You really can’t do anything about that. Outside on the property – if it on the property it is visible, it is in violation. If it is enclosed or fenced it, it is not a violation.
With no further questions or comments, Supervisor Deyo closed the Public Hearing at 7:31pm.
Deborah D. Smith, Town Clerk/Clerk of the Board
