Today at City Hall: A Vote on Melissa’s Park Conservancies Bill

At today’s stated meeting (to be held shortly), the City Council will vote on a piece of legislation introduced by Melissa this year that will require local representation on our city’s park conservancies.

Additionally, Melissa was a lead sponsor of a resolution calling on New York State to update the law around priority admission for veterans to Mithcell-Lama housing.  The law, if introduced and passed at the State level, would provide priority admission to veterans of the Iraq, Afghanistan and Gulf Wars and to their widows and widowers, as well as to widowers of Vietnam War-era veterans, all of whom are currently excluded from the admission priority.

Stay tuned for updates on the votes on this and other legislation to be voted on at the Stated Meeting.
