Corner called traffic hazard
New Windsor Councilwoman Rebecca H. Harman told the Town Council last week that the corner of High and Maple streets has become a traffic hazard.
Six women complained to the councilwoman that the lawn at 404 High St. grows 18-inch-long fetch -- a plant the state uses to decrease erosion on hills along state highways -- that makes it almost impossible for a driver to see down the road when pulling out of Maple Avenue.
According to town laws, the town must send a letter to the resident explaining the situation.
The resident would be given 10 days to comply before the town could take further action.
Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr. said residents should be warned that the law -- which had not been previously enforced -- will be enforced by Resident Trooper Phil Henry.
