SECTION 1. Legislative Findings, Purpose and Intent.
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Montgomery adopted its 2017 Comprehensive Plan Update on April 7, 2020.

It is, therefore, the purpose of this Local Law to begin the implementation of the 2017 Comprehensive Plan Update.

It is also pursuant to its statutory powers that the Village hereby enacts this Local Law.

Moratorium on Water Service Termination, Moratorium on Water Re-levy, and Opportunity for Deferred Payment Agreements
On May 11, 2021 Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to the Public Service Law that prevent municipalities and public utilities from terminating water service provided to residents and small businesses for non-payment during the COVID-19 state of emergency. Additionally, the amendments prevent municipalities from re-levying previously accrued water charges on or after May 11, 2021 until either the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency or December 31, 2021, whichever is earlier.
All water suppliers must notify residential and small business customers of the protections afforded under the law.
