A winter storm leaving over a foot of snow forced Town of Stony Point Supervisor Jim Monaghan and the Town Board to reschedule a public hearing to amend the town’s code to “Prohibit Improper Real Estate Solicitations in the Town of Stony Point.” A “no knock” law will be discussed at the new hearing date Tuesday, March 28, 7 p.m. at the RHO Building.

Supervisor Monaghan said, “It has recently come to my attention that town residents have been the subject of inappropriate solicitations at their homes by individuals seeking to induce a sale of the home, in some cases, presenting false information to homeowners. The problem is not unique to the Town of Stony Point… In order to address the problem, I’m introducing an amendment to Chapter 159 of the Town Code (Peddling and Soliciting) to address and prohibit this type of conduct.”
