Town Supervisor Paul Feiner wants legislation that would regulate outdoor ranges. Before submitting the proposal, both supporters and opponents of the range were given a chance to speak about it at a special meeting Tuesday,

Councilman Francis Sheehan invoked a rule that postpones any action for now. Sheehan said he had concerns that the proposal is not aimed at safety, but rather to put the range out of business.

The town board may still act on Feiner's proposal, but nothing will happen right away.

The subject may be on the agenda when the town board meets at the end of August.
