It very well could have been the first time that a Chief Judge has ever visited the City of Batavia. New York State's Honorable Jonathan Lippman had ideas to reform the judicial branch in remarks made here in Batavia yesterday.
The Chief Judge spoke about a number of issues that he thought were important to the judicial system. Like the judicial pay scale, the right to a fair trial, wrongful convictions, and how cash strapped counties need more resources to fight criminal cases.
Batavia City Council will be meeting in a special business meeting on Monday night followed by a conference session. The special business meeting will begin at 7PM with the conference session to follow. Both meetings will be held in the Council Board Room on the second floor of the Batavia City Centre. The public can speak at the meeting by signing in with the City Clerk prior to the start of the meeting.
The topic of residency restrictions on sex offenders is expected to be discussed at the conference session. Batavia City Attorney George Van Nest wrote in a memo to council members advising them of challenges the city would likely face if they pass a law limiting where sex offenders could live. Those challenges, Van Nest wrote, could be very expensive to defend.
Ward Six Councilwoman Rose Mary Christian hoped she would have the support of other council members to approve some type of restrictions on how close registered sex offenders could live to schools and playgrounds.
