The Village of Plandome board unanimously approved a local law that changes the hours for operation of engine-powered landscaping equipment, such as lawn mowers and leaf blowers, by contractors, during a brief meeting on Monday.
Contractors are now allowed to operate their equipment between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday through Friday and between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Previously, contractors were permitted to operate equipment from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday as well. No operation is permitted on Sunday.
The hours for homeowners operating such equipment remains unchanged.
In unfinished business, the village board continued discussing the United States Postal Service Rail Road Office Rental Agreement.
The board and postal service have created a new agreement which will go into effect in 2020 with a five percent increase in their annual funding.
A special board meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 17 at 3 p.m. to discuss violations made by one community resident. The meeting will take place before the individual attends court. No further information was released on the crime or the resident by the board.
