KINGS PARK - The Smithtown Town Board has authorized the town attorney to go to court to make businesses located in Kings Park's "Industrial Park" comply with current law.

The town took action after residents complained about businesses ranging from equipment storage, concrete contractors and trucking companies that were close to residential areas. The residents say most of the land is zoned as residential or light industry, but that none of the businesses comply.

Residents say the businesses are responsible for the heavier traffic, continuous noise and extra pollution.

Town Supervisor Patrick Vecchio says the problem with the businesses has been going on for decades and that the lower courts have been no help.
