Mayor Reports on Letter From EPA at Board Meeting
Mayor Hal Hecken announced at the Feb. 3 Village Board meeting during his report that the Village had received a letter from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA alerted the Village that water tanks in the old Roosevelt aviation site just east of the Village of Garden City are contaminated and are to be listed on the superfund list for cleanup. Hecken noted that reportedly some of the water supplied to the Village originates in these underground tanks. The Village has scheduled meetings this week with the Health Department to discuss the water issue and assess the situation. Garden City Life will follow the story and provide updates as they become available.
TDK Electronics Purchases 901 Franklin Avenue for Headquarters
In the last couple of weeks the buzz among realtors and merchants in the Village of Garden City has been that the now vacant Salomon Smith Barney building, 901 Franklin Avenue, is to have a new occupant. TDK Electronics, which currently has its headquarters at 12 Harbor Park Drive in Port Washington, is the reported new owner of the building, having purchased it through Cushman and Wakefield from Centre Garden City, LLC. According to the talk about the Village, TDK has even informally met with the Architectural Design Review Board. Garden City Life contacted Francis Sweeney of TDK Electronics who said he was unable to formally discuss the purchase of the building for now, but once the "ink dried," so to speak, he would contact this paper.
