first_imgPhoto: PexelsJAMESTOWN – Business leaders in Jamestown are clarifying new rules for essential employees who interact with the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.The Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce says a new executive order by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo now requires all employees who interact with customers or the public must be provided with face coverings.The Executive Order reads, in part: “any employees who are present in the workplace shall be provided and shall wear face coverings when in direct contact with customers or members of the public. Businesses must provide, at their expense, such face coverings for their employees.”This mandate applies to all employees working in public areas of licensed businesses including liquor stores, pharmacies, and grocery stores, in addition to restaurants, bars, and manufacturers providing food and alcoholic beverages for delivery and takeout. Officials say the provision may be enforced by local governments or local law enforcement as if it were an order pursuant to section 12 or 12-b of the Public Health Law.Businesses licensed to sell alcohol who fail to follow this Executive Order, or any other Executive Order, will be subject to SLA discipline.The full order is available on the state’s website.On Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he is issuing a new executive order requiring face masks in public in the state of New York.Starting Friday, all New Yorkers will need to carry a face mask or covering while they’re out in public. You will need to wear it in any situation where you aren’t able to social distance.

FERRY’S REFUSE GIVEN FINAL WARNING FOR NON-PAYMENT OF €320,000 COUNTY COUNCIL BILLS


first_imgFerry’s – owes Donegal’s ratepayers more than €300,000A JUDGE has given a Donegal waste collection company a final warning over an astonishing unpaid €319,614 bill to Donegal County Council.The cash-strapped local authority is taking legal action against Ferry’s Refuse and its owner Jim Ferry for failing to pay landfill fees. The county council has been pursuing Ferry’s for the monies since 2010, Letterkenny District Court was told.Solicitor Lisa Finnegan, acting for Donegal County Council, said the authority hadn’t been paid any monies towards the debt.Kevin McElhinney, solicitor for Mr Ferry, said he had just received instructions for the case as it had been dealt with by a Dublin legal firm up until now and they didn’t want to incur the costs of travelling to Letterkenny.He said Jim Ferry had told him that he had paid monies to the council but “there appears to be an element of confusion” as these monies had been taken off other landfill charges and not the debt.Judge Paul Kelly commented that there had been a “substantial number of adjournments from March 2010 and every month since then”.The judge said that there was “scant respect being shown to the creditor or the court” in the case by Mr Ferry.On the explanation that Ferry’s monies to the council had come off the ‘wrong’ county council account, Judge Kelly commented: “He would have to pay that other bill anyway.”Mr McElhinney responded: “Yes and I have explained that to him (Jim Ferry).”Judge Kelly said that despite the outstanding debt since March 2010 no statement had been entered into the court on behalf of Ferry’s.He said he was adjourning the case for a month to give Ferry’s “one last opportunity” to respond.He ordered that Jim Ferry appear at Letterkenny District Court on February 4, that his solicitor file a statement of his means and income and a full schedule of payments and non-payments be filed to the court and to council solicitor Ms Finnegan.“Mr Ferry must be present,” added the judge.Earlier this week the refuse company was fined €2,000 for failing to tax two of its bin lorries.Last year the company faced fines and charges of €42,000 for illegally dumping outside Falcarragh.The company has been given until later this year to pay those fines.FERRY’S REFUSE GIVEN FINAL WARNING FOR NON-PAYMENT OF €320,000 COUNTY COUNCIL BILLS was last modified: January 8th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BillsDonegal County Councilferry’s refusefineslast_img read more
