Proper Disposal of Dog Waste — Barking Dogs — Licensing of Dogs

Our local law requires dog owners to leash their pets and to clean up after them when they have relieved themselves upon any areas used in common by the public. These areas include median strips, curbs, gutters, park areas, streets, etc. By way of clarification, the village’s local law is very specific as to the prohibition. “No person who owns … any dog shall … permit or allow such dog to urinate, defecate or commit any other nuisance upon any public street, thoroughfare, sidewalk, gutter … or park … [or] any place where people congregate, or upon any private property without permission of the owner thereof. The term “sidewalk” as used herein shall mean the area between the curb, or traveled portion of the street if there be no curb and the property line of the abutting property owner.”

Editorial: A Time to Reach Out

Friday, 06 April 2012 00:00
At the heart of community journalism lies the process of bringing to light the most important issues and concerns of the residents who live and work within its limits. As the Village of Garden City swears in a newly elected board of trustees this week, it is a perfect time to remember what local government is all about – an exchange of ideas.

Our Business Districts — Please Shop and Do Business in Garden City Shop and Dine in Garden City - Support the Local Merchants

I would like to ask you to do your part to support all businesses within Garden City.  I would also like to encourage all residents and professionals within Garden City to shop locally. Your patronage will be appreciated and is needed.

Many residents consider shopping and dining in our business districts as “experience shopping” because they meet friends and neighbors along the way and have an opportunity to interact with them. This is in stark contrast to frantically dashing through the crowds in the mall or the big box retailers.

Letter: Upcoming Election and the Future of Our Village

Friday, 16 March 2012 00:00

Each of us is currently serving on the village board of trustees. Although we are not running for election in the upcoming March 20 village election, we urge you to come and vote and support the Community Agreements Candidates.

We have all lived in the village for many years, from 10 years to our whole lives. We, like you, are taxpayers and are concerned with taxes and costs.  We all have children who have either been raised in the village or are now watching our children grow up here.


Letter: First-Class Entertainment at Molloy’s Madison Theatre

Friday, 16 March 2012 00:00

It is my opinion that the quality of life in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and surrounding areas has greatly improved, culturally, with the construction and opening of Molloy College’s $28 million state-of-the-art Madison Theatre, where Broadway-quality performances are being presented on a regular basis, closer to our homes and at a great savings, compared to The Great White Way’s ticket prices.
