Board Of Supervisors Witholds Support For SAFE Act

By Staff Report | Local News
BALLSTON SPA – At the monthly Saratoga County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, January 21, the board unanimously approved 15 of the 16 resolutions before them with minimal discussion. The exception to this was resolution number 31, which proposed to ‘deny the State of New York permission to use the seal of the County of Saratoga, the Saratoga County Sheriff and the Saratoga County Clerk for any purpose associated with the New York State SAFE act.’ The controversial SAFE act requires licensed gun owners to recertify all firearms within a period of five years. The resolution passed. Voting against the resolution were Supervisors Peter Martin of Saratoga Springs and supervisor Preston Jenkins of Moreau. Prior to the vote, Supervisor Martin noted that he believed that there was no live issue at this time that warranted this action and that the provisions of the resolution might prevent the county agencies’ logos from being attached to some certain correspondence that is part of the SAVE act, for instance the anti-violence ‘Katrina’s Law’ that the county would want to be associated with.
