The Brookhaven Town Code - all town codes, for that matter - is a voluminous record of rules and regulations passed by town board members over the years.
But what exactly is in it?
Much of it pertains to land use - zoning regulations, development capacities, etc. Other parts regulate activities on preserved land in town, other parts on certain industries within Brookhaven (outside of incorporated villages), and of course part of it outlines responsibilities of certain town government capacities.
We thought we'd take a look and test our readers' knowledge about some of the more particular parts of it.
How high can your grass grow until the town can fine you $500? Are your backyard lights too elevated? Are your dogs a threat to your bank account?
If you know the answers to all of these questions, you probably work in code enforcement or in the town clerk's office.
We'll post the answers in a few days, so check back soon.
