BANGOR– The city of Bangor is working to adjust an ordinance that may put some at-home daycares at risk…
The Department of Health and Human Services recently sent a letter to home-based daycare providers, warning them that they may be out of compliance with local regulations.
Right now, the ordinance limits the number of employees who do not live in a home.
But law also requires a certain ratio of employees to children enrolled in the programs.
DHHS agreed to give the city 90 days to adjust the ordinance so that daycares and neighborhoods are protected.
