Middletown Common Council to vote on municipal IDs next month

MIDDLETOWN – The issue of establishing municipal identification cards for all residents of the City of Middletown will be on the agenda for the first meeting of next month.

Alderman Jerry Kleiner told Tuesday night’s council session the issue has been vetted by his Communications Committee.

“As Poughkeepsie did, there will be an implementation date because we are going to pass the legislation and then we will have to translate the documents, we have to have instruction on how to recognize them. We have to have the application on the website and it has to match the legislation. We will hopefully have the application and everything translated.”

Kleiner said they will also consider bringing a translator to the meeting.

Large numbers of residents have been attending council meetings urging the lawmakers to adopt the measure promoted by the groups Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson and the New York Civil Liberties Union.
