Mrs. Labow: I just have a question. In this ordinance the Chief… in the second whereas, the Chief noted that this area is not secure and their prisoners and those under arrest generally traverse this area sometimes without security. They have a sally-port so I don't understand why they're not pulling them in to the sally-port, like why are they walking out in the open?

 

Mrs. Lashway: My understanding is it's the security of the whole parking area mostly where there had been known gang members possibly walking through and I think they were afraid of some type of sabotage.

President Tobey: Thank you, Roll Call please.

LEGAL MATTERS

 

President Tobey: Is there any Old Business this evening? Any New Business? Any Legal Matters Dominic?

 

Mr. DiYanni: Is there any discussion…I noticed the first few minutes about this moratorium? Is there anything going on with that because I have a resolution prepared.

 

Mrs. Labow: No, it was a letter… the Mayor sent a letter today that was sufficient for everybody so…

 

Mr. DiYanni: Oh, okay I just wanted to make sure if we needed to get that on the record but if not then…

 

Mrs. Labow: Well if you want we can just put it on the record that the Administration sent a letter putting a moratorium on euthanization of the cats until after the TNR group was able to meet with the ACO and the Health Officer and Mr. Perkins on the 14 th and so for now until the 20 th, Mr. Greenbaum stepped in and made sure that was taken care of.

 

Mr. DiYanni: Also I know, I think Fred of our office sent up a memo on the underage drinking ordinance. Did that suffice? Answered everyone's concerns, answered everyone's questions… I just want to make sure there weren't any outstanding questions.

 

Mr. Mania: Sufficed for me. I'm the one …

 

Mr. Greenbaum: It's actually going to be listed for First Reading in two weeks so there may be some questions at that point in time on the issue but at this point there weren't any.

 

Mr. DiYanni: Okay great.

 

Mrs. Labow: Actually he brought that up. I have one quick question on that. I was discussing it with a resident and they wanted to know specifically what the difference was between one or the other and how I explained it reading through your memo was that the way it is now, underage drinking… is it c2?

 

Mr. DiYanni: 2C

 

Mrs. Labow: 2C which can be expunged from the record… two of what the police can use is something that is not as easily expunged and there is more accountability for the underage drinker. Is that a sufficient way or is there a better way to…

 

Mr. DiYanni: Now if we give it 2C then you would have to get it expunged if you had it on your record. Whereas this would be just an ordinance violation so it's actually less…

 

Mrs. Labow: It's less of an offense, absolutely but…

 

Mr. DiYanni: It's a tool without having to put something permanently on somebody's record you know so…

 

Mrs. Labow: That stays on the record still, a violation or warrants if somebody were to look that far?

 

Mr. DiYanni: Yes.

 

Mrs. Labow: Okay.

 

President Tobey: Alright, thank you. Moving on, any Council Reports?
