Gossips has learned that Mayor Rick Rector today vetoed Local Law No. 4, the law pertaining to vacant buildings. On July 17, the Common Council voted unanimously to enact the law. The action, coming a day after a public hearing at which no one had anything to say in support or in opposition to the law, was taken in response to objections from code enforcement officer Craig Haigh to some specific language in the law. Exactly what Haigh found to be problematic is not known at this point and may not be known until the mayor issues his formal veto message.
