Westchester County Legislator Terry Clements, who represents Pelham and Pelham Manor and parts of New Rochelle, spoke at the August 14 meeting of the Rotary Club of the Pelhams.
She pointed out that the Westchester County Board of Legislators has passed legislation banning styrofoam containers for takeout from delis and restaurants. The law was signed by County Executive George Latimer in early June and goes into effect in six months.
Legislator Clements also discussed other issues that have been before the Board, including where the Family Court should be located. She opposed its proposed location in a residential area on Shore Road and it has been announced that it will be located in a new building near the downtown new rochelle transit station.
Early voting was another topic she covered as well as how she is working with a request from Pelham Village officials for county funding for a sewer project.
