Montville Town Council to discuss peddlers ordinance on Monday
The Montville Town Council on Monday is scheduled to discuss and possibly vote on changes that would liberalize the municipal pedders ordinance.
The council discussed changes to the ordinance in April with some business people and other members of the public saying relaxed regulations for pushcart vendors might hurt brick-and-mortar businesses. The council referred the issue to the Economic Development Commission and Planning and Zong Commission with a request that those two panels report findings by the council’s July meeting.
A senior citizens tax relief plan and the possibility of creating a Board of Education contingency fund that would up set aside up to 1 percent of the school board’s annual budget are also scheduled for discussion at Monday’s meeting that begins at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. The council’s Finance Committee on June 24 voted 3-0 against the fund plan put forward by Superintendent of Schools Pamela Aubin.
A discussion of public hearing procedures that could give some speakers more time than the current three-minute limit is also on Monday’s agenda.
