Village Pool Applications Mailed
Earlier this week, the Garden City Recreation Department mailed their Splash newsletter, which includes the 2013 pool application. If you have not received the newsletter/application, please call the recreation office at 516-465-4075.
Shop And Dine In Garden City - Support The Local Merchants
Please do your part to support all businesses within Garden City, which includes Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road. I also 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.
I encourage residents to make a conscious effort to choose Garden City as the place to shop and dine. 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 always look forward to meeting everyone in town.
Garden City Police Department - Well Check Program
The Garden City Police Department, in its continuing effort to provide emergency service to the Garden City Community, wishes to remind the residents of the Police Department’s Well Check Program. This program is available to any senior citizen, a person with a disability, or to any person suffering a hardship. Police Commissioner Kenneth Jackson has advised me that residents can contact the police department and be placed on its Well Check Log. Each morning, a person who is placed on the police department’s log can call in to check in and let us know if they are okay or in need of assistance. If a person who is on the list does not contact the police department, an attempt will be made to contact that person either by phone and/or in person. Any person who wishes to be placed on the Garden City Police Department’s Well Check log may contact the Desk Officer at 516-465-4101.
Board Of Trustees Meeting Schedule
The next board of trustees meeting will be on Thursday, April 18, at 8 p.m. The meeting will be 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.
