Greenburgh Town Hall To Be Open Sunday For Gay Marriage Licenses, Ceremonies

HARTSDALE, NY (WCBS 880) – Greenburgh town supervisor Paul Feiner says it’s a moment in history.

Gay couples in New York have waited for the right to marry and so Sunday, he realizes, is a meaningful day. Therefore, the town hall will be open to approve and perform ceremonies.

“This is all being done by volunteers — myself, town clerk Judith Beville, and we have a bunch of other volunteers who are going to be helping out. So, there won’t be any additional tax payer dollars used,” said Feiner.

Three judges and six new marriage officers will also be on hand.

Feiner says just a few couples have indicated they’ll come to town hall Sunday at noon for a license.

They’re asking couples planning to do so to contact the town clerk by phone at 914-993-1500 or e-mail at ahead of time.

Right now, the plan is to make licenses available until 2:00 p.m., but that could change with demand.

    Interesting…if you or i would want to marry on a sun, we would have to wait…For “gay rights” they open town hall to enable the most perverted behaviors to be legalized. SHAME ON NYC!

      Greenburgh isn’t in NYC.

      Keep in mind this is a one time thing, because the new law takes effect on that day. It is not like every Sunday will be “Gay Marriage Day” at the Clerk’s office. Also, you should note that they are not turning away straight couples at any town hall/courhouse/clerk’s office. In NYC the lottery for weddings on Sunday is open to both straight and gay couples. There is no special consideration here.

      This is a celebration of love, something you apparently know nothing about since all you seem to spew around here is hatred.
