Mayor's Report: May 1, 2014

Board Of Trustees Meetings

The next meetings of the board of trustees will be on Thursday, May 1 and Thursday, May 15 at 8 p.m. The meetings are held in the boardroom at village hall. I encourage all residents to attend board of trustees meetings so as to be thoroughly informed of village issues from a first-hand perspective.

Shop And Dine In Garden City And Enjoy The Experience

I encourage residents to make a conscious effort to choose Garden City as the place to shop and dine. It would be extremely helpful to our business community if you could make one purchase daily in the Village stores.  Customer service, selection and quality are outstanding.  While shopping or dining let the merchant know that you appreciate them and all that they offer. I look forward to seeing everyone in town.

School Budget Meetings

The school district 2014-15 budget meetings are scheduled as follows (all budget meeting are held at 8:15 p.m. at Garden City High School):

May 13: Budget hearing

May 20, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.: Budget vote in high school gymnasium

Calendar Adjustment

Due to the difficult winter weather, four days of school were canceled for Garden City Public Schools. The calendar was adjusted to make up these days. April 21 and 22 were full days of schools as will be May 23. Additionally, Friday, June 27 will be used as a staff development day for faculty and paraprofessionals.

News

The Garden City Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the 35th annual Fall Festival Street Fair set for Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Seventh Street. The chamber thanks the Garden City Hotel which will serve as the primary event sponsor.

JGS entertainment will return for the 16th year as master ceremonies providing music and vocals. There will be plenty of activities for the kids. Included will be the return of the two trackless trains carrying children 12 years of age and younger up and down Seventh Street sponsored by Coach Realtors and Garden City Teachers Association. There will be the traditional inflatable bouncy house sponsored by SMPL Technologies and the ever-popular money cube sponsored by Calogero’s and Leo’s. The Garden City Parks and Recreation Department will have giveaways and temporary tattoos.


Sports

Reminder

With the fall sports season upon us, the department of recreation and parks would like to remind all residents that pets are not allowed in any neighborhood parks, Community Park, or St. Paul’s fields. Non compliance with this rule will result in the issuance of appearance tickets.

Register For The Online Registration Option

Garden City’s Department of Recreation and Parks will offer the option of online registration with credit card payment beginning with its winter programs in early December.

In order for a family to use the online registration option, the family will first need to visit the recreation and parks office at 108 Rockaway Ave. to verify residency and their family information and receive their password.  A list of instructions as to how to use the website will be included.

Stretching tips for the high school athlete

Prior to the start of high school running season, Garden City’s Physical Therapy Options (PTO) had an opportunity to provide a presentation to members of Sacred Heart Academy’s cross country team. Team members gathered at Garden City’s New York Running Company to learn strategies and tips for a successful fall season.

PTO staff members Dr. Meghan Goetz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and PTO Aide Mike Murphy discussed the importance of stretching to prevent injury and provided strategies and tips for success for the high school runner.
