Ray Tartaglione is at it again. The Hen Island resident and agitator, creator of Mr. Floatie the 8-foot turd and the money behind Heal The Harbor, filed a lawsuit on Monday to compel the City of Rye to enforce its sewage laws as per code 161-1
entitled "Use of Public Sewers." In April a state court tossed another suit brought by Tartaglione against Kuder Island Colony, the owners of Hen Island.
Will Rye Mayor Doug French now have the odoriferous task of dealing with Mr. Floatie at various council meetings? Or will French and the council be able to flush Floatie once and for all?
Just last November Tartaglione promised he'd flush Mr. Floatie for good. Looks like his promise got "backed-up".
In a PR release, Tartaglione said "During a recent Rye City council meeting of April 21th 2010 Mayor French
stated "sewage issues are the responsibility of the County Health
Department", he refused to take a position on the illegal septic systems
and refused to enforce current city code 161-1. He additionally stated
"this code is not relevant", "the sewage issue does not pertain to this
council", "this council is only interested in taking action on matters
that it can effect" He also threatened to change the law rather than
enforce it and submit the findings of the inspections to the County
