In preparation for budget season, the Village of Farmingdale Board of Trustees recently adopted legislation that will allow the village to enact an override of the state’s 2 percent tax levy cap. A procedural requirement, the local law enables the village to decide—by a two-third board majority vote—whether it will exceed the cap, without the threat of a penalty from the state.
“Even though the village board has no intention of going over the 2 percent cap,” said Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, “we prepare ourselves by passing a law saying we can.”

It may have been a polar vortex outside, but inside Farmingdale’s Village hall things were heating up with the first annual Winter wonderland. Close to 800 people filled the village hall over two hours on a frigid Wednesday evening to eat, laugh, and mingle with Main
Street’s finest, the business owners. While K 98.3 played music outside, inside the wonderful aromas of a variety of hot food from the local restaurants filled the air. There were rice balls, and chicken picatta, pastas and meat balls supplied by Cascarino’s and Palmer’s
Grill, along with Shepard’s pie, hot wings from Croxley’s Ale House. The guacamole from Caracara Mexican Grill was so fresh and delicious it would make a Texan jealous. There were 37 business represented all giving away free samples, food, and discounts to a packed crowd ranging in age from infants to seniors.
