Your Village has spent a good deal of time and money to beautify our central business district in order to make it appealing to residents and businesses. Our local food markets on Seventh Street and Franklin Avenue have also made a significant investment in purchasing high quality shopping carts for our use and convenience while shopping in their stores. Regrettably, these carts are not being returned to the areas prescribed by the markets and are being left within the parking fields and in the areas of the apartment houses.
In consideration of your neighbors, merchants and community, I urge residents to return these carts to their respective stores. Please don't place the Village in the position or having to expend manpower and time to impound the shopping carts. The residents' efforts will go a long way to keeping our Village like the beautiful place that we all want it to be.
The Colonel Aaron Ogden Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has asked me to proclaim the week of Sept. 17 through 23 as "Constitution Week" in Garden City.
Our nation's Constitution, adopted Sept. 17, 1787, provided a fundamental document for freedom and independence, which has become a way of life in our great nation. All of us have cause to pause and reflect on our heritage.
During the next four to six weeks, contractors will be rebuilding the portion of Chestnut Street from Franklin Avenue to the Long Island Rail Road trestle at St. James Street. During this period it will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
