GLOVERSVILLE- The Common Council will hold its regular meeting at 6 p.m. today at city hall.
On the agenda are public hearings about the proposed amendment to the city code to impose a moratorium on the construction of multiple-unit dwellings in residential districts, and an amendment pertaining to penalties for property maintenance offenses. At the end of the public hearing, the council will vote to pass or deny the proposed amendments.
Mayor Dayton King said the moratorium would have no effect on the Kinderhook project - behind the Lee Avenue and Northern Terrace neighborhoods - already under way, but would prevent similar projects from getting started.
The city also will look to eliminate the mandatory $50-per-day fine for property-maintenance offenses.
Officials said eliminating the fee would allow the city attorney, Anthony Casale, more options when negotiating cases. Officials said the change would help with efforts to get property owners to comply with city codes.
