Amherst Board Places Moratorium on Home Construction
By Mark Wozniak
Amherst, NY – The Amherst Town Board Monday night enacted a moratorium on new home construction in areas of the town where home foundations are sinking.
The Board also issued a request for the US Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a soil study to help determine the extent of the problem, and to help craft a solution.
About 200 people attended the meeting, many angry at what they see as the town's inaction to their problems.
