Floral Park Gets SMART
Police Lieutenant Bob Drost recently demonstrated Floral Park's Speed Monitoring Awareness Trailer (SMART), bought with funds from a grant obtained through Senator Michael Balboni, to the Floral Park Village Board. The device is designed to promote compliance with the 30-mph village speed limit (20-mph in school zones) by giving motorists a reminder to slow down. The unit will be moved throughout the village, towed by the police department's SUV, which has been equipped with a trailer hitch.

Concerned citizens of the Sewanhaka Central High School District voiced their opinions about a referendum regarding the new Elmont Public Library, to be built on the site of the abandoned Alva T. Stanforth (ATS) property located on Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont, at a board of education meeting. Concerns were raised regarding the November 2003 issue of Franklin Square's Cross Roads newsletter, which attempted to explain increases in the tax bills by "inaccurately blaming Elmont," according to Margaret Murphy, a resident of Franklin Square, who addressed the school board on behalf of the referendum.
