It’s Official

The Salem – Silver Lake Cooperative Plan has been officially approved – 11-21-2016_approval_cv

Per the Cooperative Plan agreement, Section 11(b)(i) – Ordinances, reads as follows: “Notwithstanding any other provisions of this agreement, the Town of Salem Code of Ordinances, exclusive of those pertaining to zoning, shall remain in effect within the current territory of the Town and the provisions of the Village ordinances shall remain in effect within the current territory of the Village following the Consolidation Date until amended by the Village Board”.

Ordinance 200(4)(b) states:  “No person shall cause or permit a dog or cat to be on property, public or private, not owned or possessed by such keeper unless such person has in his immediate possession an appropriate device for scooping excrement …”.
