North Canaan meeting on new ordinances delayed
NORTH CANAAN — A plan to convene a special selectmen’s meeting to consider public comments on proposed ordinances was canceled by the selectmen, who have decided to consider any comments at their August meeting instead.
Originally scheduled for Monday, July 27, consideration of the ordinances was postponed to allow more time for residents to view the proposed ordinances, now posted on the town website at www.northcanaan.org.
The three ordinances concern a tax incentive plan, food trucks and blighted properties (including abandoned motor vehicles).
Reached for comment on Thursday, July 23, about the cancellation, First Selectman Charles Perotti said that the ordinances were not ready for posting in time for residents to comment, so the selectmen decided to allow comments to be received at Town Hall until July 29.
Comments can be emailed or phoned to the selectmen’s office before that date.
The proposed ordinances and any comments are expected to be discussed at the next meeting of the Board of Selectmen scheduled for Monday, Aug. 3, beginning at 7 p.m. The meeting will be conducted by Zoom.
