Orange County, NY - On the heels of a Tuesday night vote by the Monroe Town Board green-lighting a 164-acre expansion of Kiryas Joel, a special meeting of the Orange County Legislature has been scheduled for Tuesday to vote on whether to appropriate some $250K for a legal challenge to the annexation.

RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1JYyszD) reports that the Monroe Town board rejected KJ’s request for a 507-acre expansion but in a 4-1 vote approved its 164-acre plan at Tuesday’s session.

A special meeting has now been scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Emergency Services Center in Goshen. Following an executive session discussion over possible litigation, lawmakers will then vote publicly.

It isn't hatred. They feel they were cheated. There was no option in the vote to not let KJ expand at all. They feel that people were bribed.

Look what they did to Ramapo!!! Hundreds of illegal yeshivas in small houses with no fire or carbon monoxide alarms. Throwing trash in the small ponds, keeping garbage by the curb 7 days a week for rats to eat. I truly can't blame the residents near KJ.

It isn't hatred. Not any more hatred than your reaction to if a group of Arabs decided to build a mosque (with the loudspeakers 5 times a day), school system, community center and living quarters only they can rent right next to where you live. They don't speak English either. And when they first started building they were approved for a golf course and low density housing. Not huge apartment complexes that they built.

They are terrible neighbors. The unemployment rate is high, their dependence on government handouts is high, and they do not respect the laws of the land. People are sick and tired of paying for free loaders. Their sense of entitlement is what makes people angry. They do not want to speak English. They want to be separate from the goyim, yet enjoy all the free government handouts. The neighbors are the ones that end up paying for all those free handouts.
