As one gentleman at the board meeting put it: the law is like a "bullet proof vest with holes in it."
"There wasn't enough bite in it - in other words, penalties for people that violate [the law]," Hermann said. "The judge is kind of helpless when it comes to somebody not showing up for court. I take the time to write up tickets and no one complies. We are having a little trouble with that."
According to Hermann, verbiage is the key component. The judge doesn't have the power to have someone arrested with a bench warrant without it being written into local law.
Village pool to open June 25
The village of Jordan is looking forward to the summer concert in the park and the opening of The Jordan Veterans Memorial Pool on Brutus Road tentatively set for June 25.
Onondaga County Community Development grant funds went toward replacing the shell of the pool. After undergoing routine stages - assembly and a paint job - all that stands between the dog days of summer and a refreshing dip in the pool is time to watch the paint dry.
A few years ago, also with Community Development grant funds, a spray park was introduced. Platten has continued his work on a volleyball court while the pavilion plays host to numerous families looking to enjoy the summer months.
