Colonie Town Supervisor Paula Mahan has touted this two-phased plan as an "outside the box" idea that should help the town control this growing problem.
Magguilli said that after the meeting, the local law was sent to the secretary of state and is expected to be reviewed and sent back before it goes into effect.
"Before the local law becomes effective, it needs to be reviewed by the secretary of state," he said. Magguilli also said this applies to the point-system law, which was passed by the Town Board at its regular meeting on Thursday, Aug. 6.
Magguilli expects that both laws will be sent back "relatively soon," he said.
