Tribeca residents and business owners are decidedly not thrilled about the city's plan to relocate the criminal summons court to 40 Worth Street, which means that several hundred folks who commit minor violations have to pass through the area daily in order to be arraigned or to pay their fines. When a city rep presented the move to CB 1 last night as if it were a done deal, community members recoiled, listing several concerns about the plan. The whole kerfuffle ended with the board "strongly opposing the move, chastising the city for trying to sneak it through, and requesting that any decision be delayed until further locations can be investigated."
