Spokespersons of "Geese Peace" issued the following statement on Tuesday regarding the boycott of Freedom Park's Independence Day event:
"In a recent meeting of the Save the Geese steering committee, the group decided to launch "Skip Scotia," a boycott of Scotia's Fourth of July celebration in Collins Park, to be held on Friday, June 30. The Save the Geese group asks residents to instead attend Clifton Park's Fourth of July festivities, to be held on Tuesday, July 4, in celebration of Independence Day and Clifton Park's recent adoption of humane non-lethal methods to reduce their Canada goose population, including the use of border collies."
Brown said she feels even with the numbers of the geese diminishing she knows it is far from over.
In other village business, a proposal was passed to introduce a curfew law. The law would require children under the age of 18 to be off village streets by 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and by midnight Friday and Saturday.
"There will be of course exceptions to the rule such as school functions. With vandalism and loitering, it's time to introduce such a law," said McLaughlin.""
