In summertime, our libraries swell with children who are doing summer reading and participate in great programs offered to them there. Adults are often eager to find a summer blockbuster to take to the beach for leisure reading. Of course, this is all in addition to the fantastic array of daily activities the library has to offer its residents year round. Therefore, each summer too, legislators like to offer residents an opportunity to also pick up useful booklets from various State agencies and receive free essential information that may answer a question they have a concern about.
I am pleased to report that this year was a safe one for our village. The police department has reported that it was a very quiet one and there were no incidents reported.
Working under a special permit from the village, food establishments on Seventh Street, New Hyde Park Road and Franklin Avenue have placed tables and chairs outside their shops and restaurants for your convenience and enjoyment. Please stop by to let the merchants know that you appreciate their efforts and enjoy the many fine tastes of Garden City. As of today, there are 30 establishments that are participating in the Outdoor Dining Program.
The LiCalzi family visited the Military History Exhibit at the library with the principal intent of viewing the materials and memorabilia concerning our son 1st Lt. Michael L. LiCalzi, USMC who died in Iraq in 2006 serving our nation.
(The following was submitted by the Garden City Board of Trustees Public Information Committee)
The Garden City Board of Trustees (BOT) has been studying the effects of this massive development for several years. The majority of the trustees believe that something will be developed there but feel this proposed project is far too large and could have significant adverse affects on the neighboring village business districts, as well as quality of life for all residents. Nothing of this magnitude has ever been attempted in Nassau County.
In the 2007-08 school year, Long Island schools took more than $11 million in state aid for pre-K and . . . sent it back unused. Over 4,000 allocated seats were left empty.
What a catastrophe!

Unemployment is still rising. Businesses continue to fail. Municipal governments require assistance to avoid further slashing of vital social programs. Nassau County needs help from Albany to avoid layoffs and the closing of many of our offices, parks and facilities.
Next Sunday, June 28, marks the graduation of the Garden City High School Class of 2009. On behalf of the village board of trustees and the residents we extend our very best wishes and congratulations to the Class of 2009. They are an outstanding group of young people who are a credit to our community and I know that they will be ambassadors of Garden City in their “homes away from home” during their college years. We urge them to keep listening, learning and to seek knowledge so that they can make a difference.
The Town of Hempstead proudly takes part in the celebration of our nation’s independence with our Annual Independence Day Celebration and Veterans Salute. The salute will occur Saturday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m.
The New York State Senate unanimously passed a vitally important economic stimulus and community revitalization program: the Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit, Senator Craig Johnson announced.
The bill, (S2960-B), strengthens the state program first launched in 2006 and will make New York State more competitive against the nearly 30 other states with similar programs. The changes will allow the state to target reinvestment to distressed communities, as determined by the U.S. Census, and incorporate cost savings to the administration of the program.
