hold a public hearing for the purpose of adopting such local law on January 11, 2017

Motion made by Trustee Patrick Hance that the adoption of the proposed local law under

forward copies of the proposed local law and SEQRA determination to the Nassau County
Planning Commission as required by §239-m of the General Municipal Law of the State of
New York.


LICENSE PLATE READERS IN THE VILLAGE

After recent burglaries in the Village, Mayor Sean Haggerty asked two license plate
reader companies to come to the meeting tonight to explain how the license readers work
and any other information that would enlighten everyone. A+ Technology and NDI Recognition
Systems separately explained how the recognition systems continuously scan and read
license plates under various lighting and weather conditions.  Resident Malinda Gillan
was opposed to the cameras, as she felt it was an invasion of privacy and did not want
anyone to know her whereabouts.  She also believed that it was a waste of money
considering only six houses have been broken into.  Mayor Sean Haggerty explained that
this was just a preliminary meeting to find out how the scanners operate.  If at such
time, the Village Board decides to go ahead with the cameras, a formal bid process would
take place.
 
Motion to go into executive session made by Mayor Sean Haggerty, seconded by Trustee
John Lippmann and confirmed by all.
