WHEREAS, the New York State Legislature has passed the “New York Safe Act” statute, which statute was hastily drawn and quickly adopted by New York State; and
WHEREAS, a more thoughtful review of the act, as presently adopted, discloses various inconsistencies, omissions and irregularities, as well as provisions which are either incapable of clear definition or application, both by those who are opposed to the act and those who are in favor of it, in whole or in part; and
WHEREAS, the Town Board of the Town of Clarkson wishes to go on record with respect to the New York Safe Act and its present provisions, so as to encourage the New York State Legislature to address all of the above issues with respect to the act as it is presently enacted and to encourage amendment and revisions to such act to address the legitimate concerns of all citizens of the State who are interested in the subject matter of the act.
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Town Board of the Town of Clarkson, Monroe County, New York, as follows:
SECTION 1. By the adoption of this resolution, the Town Board of the Town of Clarkson does hereby encourage and support the representatives of the Town of Clarkson in the New York Legislature to address all of the outstanding and unresolved issues as set forth above and to amend or revise or otherwise act upon the New York Safe Act in such a manner so as to resolve the same in the best interest of the constituents which they serve.
