VILLAGE OKS SEX OFFENDER BILL (Board votes 5-0 for residency restrictions that will prohibit registered criminals from living near kids)

The Village of Mineola has been added to the growing list of Long Island municipalities restricting where registered sex offenders can live.  The five-member village board voted 5-0 in favor of the bill last night following a hearing in which about two dozen residents came out to support the measure and even called for more restrictions.
