There are two public hearings at Tuesday’s Northport Village trustees meeting, regarding proposed legislation on bamboo and license requirements for telecommunications systems.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall, 224 Main St.

The purpose of the bamboo resolution is to “preserve and protect private and public property from the damaging spread of certain running bamboo grasses, protect indigenous plant materials from the invasive spread of running bamboo and maintain the general welfare of the residents,” village documents show.

The proposed telecommunications law says no one can construct or operate a telecommunications system or be granted a permit, approval or authorization to construct a system without having been issued a license by the board to use a public right of way.
