The Farmingdale school district will be going green, in the tradition of the uniforms of its teams, the Dalers.

“The comptroller is there to protect the taxpayers.”
That is what former Nassau Comptroller Howard Weitzman says is the job of a comptroller. It’s something he says he did during his eight years in the position, and it’s something that he wants to do again. Weitzman was elected to the position in 2001 and 2005 before being narrowly defeated by current Nassau County George Maragos in 2009.
Weitzman blames his defeat on a rare illness he contracted in 2009, which he says prevented him from running a full campaign. He says that despite his limited campaigning he was still only defeated by a narrow margin – 800 votes.
Irish eyes, and for that matter, all other eyes, were smiling on St. Patrick’s Day in Farmingdale. The First Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held on Main Street and a huge crowd attended the event. Dressed in green, crowds lined the sidewalks as the parade traveled south from North Side School to the Village Green.
Amid ever-increasing financial burdens facing schools throughout New York, including the state-mandated tax cap, the Farmingdale school board presented the first draft of its budget for the 2013-14 school year, calling for a 1.87 percent tax increase over last year’s figure.
Assistant Superintendent for Business Paul Defendini held an in-depth presentation of the proposed budget at a public workshop at Weldon E. Howitt Middle School, which he said was strenuously crafted this year to ensure the continued quality of education in the Farmingdale school district.
“It’s going to be a destination at the train station in Farmingdale.”
That’s how Anthony Bartone described the construction project called The Plaza at Farmingdale that Bartone Properties is building along South Front Street at the intersection of Secatogue Avenue.
Restore state high-tax to this year’s levels. That’s the most important message that the Farmingdale School District’s Legislative Action Committee tried to get across when members of the committee recently traveled to Albany to present the Farmingdale School District’s 2013-14 legislative proposals. According to Farmingdale School District officials, Governor’s Cuomo’s proposed budget would remove $1.4 million in high-tax aid to Farmingdale.
“That’s a big number considering we have a 2 percent tax cap,” said Assistant Superintendent for Administration Barbara J. Horsley. “We’re asking, just return the high-tax aid. Just make it what it was.”
For the first time, the Village of Farmingdale on Sunday, March 17, will be holding a St. Patrick’s Day parade in what is to become an annual event.
Organizers are hoping that the parade will give Farmingdale residents a chance to come together and share a special event, and are also hoping that the parade will bring customers to Main Street and help support the businesses located there.
