White Plains, NY – The Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) Federal & State Affairs Committee, chaired by Legislator Ken Jenkins (D-Yonkers), will be discussing with several notable guests the fast tracking of federal trade agreements on MONDAY—March 23 at 4 PM.
Legislator Sheila Marcotte (R) Eastchester, New Rochelle, Tuckahoe, has proposed a plan to allow Westchester residents to more easily access two county databases that monitor home improvement contractors. The proposal would allow consumers the ability to easily check both a contractor’s licensing status as well as if the contractor has any liens and or judgements against them, all on one webpage.
On Monday at a Special Meeting of the Board of Legislators legislation was passed that enabled County Attorney Robert Meehan to amend the legal proceedings against the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The vote was unanimous. The court action is an attempt to recover approximately $17 million in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) that were earmarked for Westchester County but reallocated outside of Westchester by HUD.
