Ramapo and Emergency Services Personnel Meet to Address Code and Building Issues

Last week’s New York State Senate public hearing on code enforcement may
have sparked some initial fireworks between the county executive and the
town of Ramapo, but it could be spark that leads to peace. Ramapo is one
of the municipalities being focused on by the hearings. Rockland County
Executive Ed Day slammed Ramapo supervisor Michael Specht’s testimony, and told “The Morning Show” Friday the town must control illegal housing

Ramapo Supervisor Michael Specht responded by suggesting the county
executive might have misunderstood his testimony, and said the town is
working hard to right the wrongs of the past…

Later, on “Who Wants to be a Volunteer,” host Gordon Wren, formerly the
director of Emergency Services in Rockland, and Ramapo’s Chief of Staff,
Mona Montal, argued over a New Hempstead school that was found to have
several violations…

But cooler heads prevailed, and during the show, Wren and Ramapo
officials, including their building inspectors, agreed to meet with Justin
Schwartz of the Illegal Housing Task Force. Schwartz tells WRCR News that
meeting is being held today.
