After ignoring the problems for an extended period of time, the Mount Kisco Village Board will start to address the economic problems that are affecting Mount Kisco’s downtown. In a news release sent out yesterday (the day before the meeting scheduled by Occupy Main Street), the Village announced:
The Mayor and Board of Trustees will hold a Work Session Meeting on Tuesday, March 13 at 6:30 pm with Mount Kisco Merchants and Business Owners to discuss issues of mutual importance and concern and to hear how the Village and businesses can help each other achieve the same objective: To ensure that businesses remain successful while contributing to a vibrant downtown and enhancing our quality of life. The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the Mount Kisco Public Library located at 100 Main Street.
Of course, this meeting is like closing the door after barn animals are out. It is too late to save some local businesses like Acadia, a business that was harassed by the Village Building Department for the use of a children’s blackboard easel at its doorway, but a step too slow may be a step in the right direction.
