Little League Town Registering Non-LL Town

Are they allowed to do that if the two nearby towns do not have little league?
They just have XYZ Baseball...

The league would need Out-Of-Boundary Waivers for players not meeting one of the above two residence criteria and that includes player who reside in areas in which there is no Little League.
The other option is the league could request to expand its boundaries to include the area where these players reside/attend school.
Depending on the size/population of the other towns the boundary expansion may be denied.

If the town wanted to start it's own LL it is free to do so.
Seems it may be happy with XYZ Baseball.
My old DA approached several towns in the area that did not have Little League.
In the course of 3-4 years two of the towns started local Little Leagues with his help.
In another case, a local LL expanded its boundaries (with approval from Williamsport) to include part of a neighboring town that did not have LL.

That's the "risk"!
To me, the better way to go is request a boundary change.
If you just go the Waiver route, if granted, they would most likely be for Regular Season Only and you would need to apply for the Waiver every year.
If you expand your boundaries then everyone that registers has full eligibility year after year after year.
