Village of Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand answers residents most frequent questions
Q. Why does it take so long for a store to open once they announce they are moving to Main Street?
A: It only takes two to three months to go through the process for a special permit (i.e. bars and restaurants) and less for those who do not need one. The wait for the Nassau County Fire Marshall office (if needed) can add another six to eight weeks to the process.
