Statute on trash limit OK'd

An amendment to the solid-waste ordinance aimed at rental properties has been adopted by the Blasdell Village Board.

Property owners convicted twice within a year of putting out too much trash will be issued a second refuse container at a cost of $150. The idea is to cut down on litter, village officials said.

Also on Wednesday night, the board adopted an ordinance requiring industrial and commercial properties to install back-flow prevention devices on their water systems as required by state law.

The board tabled a proposed amendment to the parking ordinance that would ban parking in front and side yards, except in established driveways, until it can be reviewed by the village.

Also, the board removed David Coffey as a part-time police officer, because he has not been available to work, and replaced him with William Leibold.
