TV studio enhances web presence, wins awards

Lights. Camera. Action. These are the words you may hear if you are in Floral Park’s village hall. 

 

For almost two decades Floral Park has been home to Four Village Studio (4VS), a local community television station serving the four-village area.  

The community station airs a variety of programs hosted by residents, a community billboard and its own weather station. However, according to Operations Manager James Green, this is not the only goal of the studio.

Senator Jack Martins mentioned education, business and drug use among other topics in a recent interview with the Floral Park Dispatch. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber. 

Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped foster to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
