Letter: Epstein Discusses Lighthouse Project

Friday, 09 October 2009 00:00

Much attention has been paid this summer to the proposed Lighthouse Project, which is designed to refurbish the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum and develop the 150 acres surrounding the arena. Public comment has centered around the project’s economic benefits to Long Island, with admonitions to prevent negative impact on water supply, air quality, waste disposal and traffic.

 

Letter: Leave Garden City Just the Way It Is

Friday, 02 October 2009 00:00

Who in their right mind would vote to dissolve the Village of Garden City in favor of the county government? We are considered one of the most desirable places to live on Long Island.

Thank You Garden City Fire Department

Writing on behalf of the Garden City Community, I wish to thank Fire Chief William Graham and the members of the Garden City Fire Department for conducting the beautiful eighth year anniversary ceremony of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It was a very moving experience and assisted many of us to get through that difficult day.

More on Acting Now to Be Prepared for Hurricane Season

In an earlier column, I shared some suggestions on how to secure your property in preparation for a hurricane. The following are additional recommendations on what you can do now to be prepared in the event that a major storm hits Long Island:

Most importantly, advise the Police Department (465-4100) now if someone in your family uses life support equipment. Put together a family hurricane kit. Have a battery-powered radio or television available (check the batteries). Keep a flashlight handy for each member of the family with plenty of extra batteries. Store a supply of canned food with a manual can opener. Don’t forget about your pets. Keep a non-electric telephone in your home - the phone lines oftentimes remain operational even during power outages.

Please take these suggestions seriously; they can save your life.

Board of Trustees Meeting Schedule

The next board of trustees meetings will be held Thursday, Oct. 1, and Thursday, Oct. 15. The meetings will be held in the board room at Village Hall and will begin at 8 p.m. At the Oct. 1 meeting there will be a public hearing on proposed Local Law: A Local Law to Amend the Code of the Village of Garden City to Establish a Definition of a Corner Lot or Plot.

A copy of the proposed Local Law is available at Village Hall and is listed on the village’s website.

Village’s Website

I encourage residents to periodically utilize the village’s website for information regarding the village’s operations, as well as items of seasonal and special interest. The address is www.gardencityny.net. Listed under the Public Works page is information regarding the Recycling Program.

 

Letter: Short Notice of Governor’s Meeting

Given the nature of the new H1N1 flu and given the degree of interest which 
the media has shown, your statewide initiative is important and welcomed.

 

Letter: McMillan Column a Compilation of Distortion and Innuendo

Friday, 18 September 2009 00:00

I generally enjoy reading Robert McMillan’s column, although I occasionally disagree with him. The column in the Aug. 21 issue of the Garden City Life, however, was such a compilation of distortion and innuendo that I find that I must comment. I am not a health care expert, but, I listen to experts and I read the papers. I would encourage everyone to do the same and form their own opinions based on facts and not on prejudices. One of my sources is The New York Times which in an Aug. 23 editorial refutes or corrects much of what Mr. McMillan has written.

Pool Season Ended September 7

With the arrival of Labor Day and the anticipation of school reopening comes the third harbinger of autumn - the closing of the Garden City Swimming Pool. Much to the credit of the pool staff, village residents experienced another safe and enjoyable pool season. My compliments to Kevin Ocker, Ed Fronckwicz, Grace Chianese and the entire Recreation Staff.
