business of farming, which do not threaten public health and/or safety, to proceed
and be undertaken free of unreasonable interference and restrictions.
This law will apply to all farmland within the boundaries of the Town of Romulus
used for agriculture as currently defined in subdivision 4, section 301, Article
25AA of the State Agriculture and Markets Law.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that at such time and place all persons interested in the subject matter thereof will be heard concerning the same.
