Like much of the country, the Village of Garden City has plenty to contend with, given the current economic climate. And while things seem to slowly be turning in the right direction, it doesn’t mitigate the fact that rising pension costs and property taxes are proving to be quite the burden, particularly in Nassau County. Like other villages, Garden City is also contending with weathering the proposed budgets for its respective municipality and school district. Throw in the ongoing saga that is St. Paul’s and the never ending battle for the almighty dollar that local merchants are waging with big box retailers that lie beyond the village’s boundaries, and it’s safe to say that Mayor John Watras and new trustees Bolebruch and Richard Silver, along with the returning board members, have their work cut out for them. With that said, the Garden City Life would like to congratulate and wish the best of luck to the newest elected officials and returning trustees going forward.
