This is an open letter to village residents from Floral Park Mayor Ann Corbett regarding air traffic noise from nearby LaGuardia and Kennedy airports. Mayor Corbett urges residents to continue writing to their elected officials in combating this ongoing community problem. It can also be seen on the village's website, www.fpvillage.org.
During a public hearing March 5 at Floral Park Village Hall, Phil Fortuna, co-owner of Long Island Checker Cab (LICC), requested to work out of Floral Park after numerous service requests from village residents. Currently, AAA Taxi works exclusively in Floral Park but Fortuna said competition could do the village good.
