Rockland County government has been given the go-ahead by the state to take over fire and safety enforcement in Spring Valley. That means the county, once the legislature approves and adopts certain laws, would conduct inspections and prosecute violators. Mayor Alan Simon told The Journal News the move is illegal and they’ve hired a civil rights attorney. The takeover could start within 90 days, unless Spring Valley convinces the state they can do the job.
