Ballard v. NY Safety Track LLC 518627

Furthermore, despite the Town respondents’ insistence that

the Town was not obliged or that it was not feasible to make

available to petitioners the proposed 2013 agreement before it

was put to a vote, we affirm that part of Supreme Court’s

judgment as found that the Town’s conduct in that regard denied
