ROTTERDAM: Town asks for repeal of sex offender law

Town supervisors from throughout the county have been meeting with county officials for the past few weeks to discuss the county's sex offender restriction laws, and the New York Civil Liberties Union has threatened to sue the county if it doesn't rescind or amend the law.

Amid the controversy, Chairwoman of the County Legislature Susan Savage, D-Niskayuna, released a statement that said county officials are considering amendments to the law.

"As a result of discussions with members of the county Legislature and the town supervisors, we are considering changes to Local Laws 3 and 4 of 2007," she said. "These changes were already under consideration and are not in response to the threatened lawsuit by the NYCLU.""
