Stonington ordinances to wait until after November election


STONINGTON — Although it was the town’s intent to hold a public meeting and vote on the fate of several ordinances before the Nov. 5 election, it now appears that the proposed regulations will have to wait until a new Board of Selectmen is seated.

The agenda for Wednesday’s selectmen’s meeting, the last before the election, did not mention ordinances that officials have discussed over the last several months.

The regulation that appeared to stand the clearest chance of progressing was the peddler’s ordinance proposed for Mystic and Pawcatuck. It would have banned food carts and other mobile vendors from setting up shop in the historic districts of both downtowns except during special evets and festivals.

The ordinance was unanimously approved by the selectmen and was to be scheduled for a Town Meeting before elections, where there would be a public hearing and most likely a vote. Selectmen wanted to put additional ordinances up for discussion, but they are still under review by the town’s staff.

“Originally we wanted to have everything completed by the election,” First Selectman Edward Haberek said. “It’s not going to happen, there have been too many delays and some of the ordinances are still under review by our attorney.”

Those proposed regulations include a noise ordinance, an ordinance dealing with invasive species of bamboo and a law to manage fowl that are kept in residential properties.
