Legislature Chair Extends Order to Prevent Housing Migrants

SHARE NOW

Once again, Cayuga County Legislature Chairman David Gould has extended the county’s state of emergency.

Signed on Saturday, the emergency order bars entities from contracting with any municipality other than the county to provide shelter, food, transportation, or medical care to asylum seekers. Violating the order can result in a fine of two thousand dollars per migrant per day of being in violation.

Cayuga County first declared a state of emergency related to a potential influx of migrants and asylum seekers to the Finger Lakes in May.
