Cochecton keeps pace with the times; Ordinances and property records go digital

Although the greater part of the Cochecton Town Board’s special April 24 meeting was devoted to the Codification Project Workshop, the board managed to accomplish several additional objectives as well. The purpose of the workshop was to update, revise, and make uniform all Cochecton town ordinances. Under the guidance of acting town attorney Karen Mannino, the board reviewed all ordinances to ensure that they are in compliance with county, state and federal law and that the language of the ordinances accurately reflects both original intent and current purpose. Ordinances having outlived their usefulness will be struck from the books. Town Supervisor Gary Maas brought the workshop to a close, noting that he and Mannino must consult further with the town code officer and county engineer before ordinances can be finalized and submitted to General Code for uploading to the town’s website.  Read more
