Asked about how Fortunoff's was dealing with complaints of residents on Hale Avenue about the construction plans, Mr. Null said Fortunoff's was meeting with the neighbors within the next three days to deal with their concerns prior to the public hearing continuation at next Monday Common Council meeting.
