The Town of Southampton is considering a new law that would prohibit the sale, distribution, and release of balloons filled with any type of lighter-than-air gas, including helium, for private or public use. The balloon ban would include, but not be limited to plastic, latex, and mylar.
To help the town board gauge the public’s opinion on such a ban, a poll is being conducted on the town’s website.
To cast a vote, go to www.southamptontownny.gov. The poll will remain active until Friday, February 14 at 4 PM.
