The Ardsley Village Board of Trustees has joined the Greenburgh Town Board in seeking an exemption from the Wicks Law. The Ardsley Village Board passed a resolution at their last meeting hoping to get the exemption so that they could save money on their proposed new firehouse. The resolution that was approved mentioned a NY State Budget study which concluded that elimination of the Wicks Law could reduce construction costs by 30%.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner congratulated the Ardsley Village Board on their efforts to save money. "We're hoping that Assemblyman Richard Brodsky and Senator Nick Spano, representatives of Ardsley and Greenburgh, will introduce legislation enabling our communities to be exempted from this wasteful law. Buffalo, various state agencies, Albany have received previous exemptions." Feiner has scheduled a meeting at Greenburgh Town Hall for march 27th at 8 PM
