In a move to further regulate the local business scene, the Seneca Falls town board greenlit new laws governing mobile food vendors and absentee landlords.
A public hearing on August 1 centered on the mobile food vending rule saw no public concerns. The town’s Business Association had, however, penned a supportive stance in July, proposing changes, with several being incorporated into the now-approved law.
The regulation passed with a 4-1 margin, the sole dissenting vote from Board member Steve Churchill who expressed skepticism over the relevance of food trucks in the town.
Similarly, the absentee landlord law was also approved 4-1, with Frank Sinicropi opposing, suggesting that the $500 violation fine should be raised significantly to ensure adherence.
