iii. Amalga has several places where individuals are living in trailers and renting apartments that does not go with our planning and zoning. Maybe we need to get input from the town citizens to see if we want to change the bylaws with the laws for habitability. Some of the rules in our planning and zoning book may need to be revisited. Judy Downs does not mind working out long-term answers to problems but does not want to waste time if these infringements on the law are not being enforced. Right now, until the laws are changed, we need to enforce the laws of our planning and zoning.
