Village Election—Tuesday, March 18
The annual village election will be held on Tuesday, March 18, from noon until 9 p.m. at Village Hall, 351 Stewart Ave. Village residents will be voting for the following candidates:
Nicholas P. Episcopia - Trustee—2-year term
Brian C. Daughney - Trustee—2-year term
Robert A. Bolebruch - Trustee—2-year term
Theresa A. Trouvé - Trustee—2-year term
Since the incorporation of the village in 1919, members of the board of trustees in Garden City have been elected by a non-partisan vote of residents in accordance with the policies of the Community Agreement.
Absentee Ballot Applications
Absentee ballot applications to be used in conjunction with the general village election on March 18, are available at the Village Hall, 351 Stewart Ave. Applications must be received by the village clerk by March 11 if the ballot is to be mailed. For personal application, the deadline is March 18.
Shop And Dine In Garden City And Enjoy The Experience
I encourage residents to make a conscious effort to choose Garden City as the place to shop and dine. It would be extremely helpful to our business community if you could make one purchase daily in the Village stores. 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 look forward to seeing everyone in town.
Budget Work Sessions
I would like to advise you that the board of trustees will be conducting work sessions to review the proposed 2014-15 operating/capital budgets on:
Thursday, Feb. 27, 7:30 p.m.
(Budget Study/Work Session 2)
Thursday, March 13, 7:30 p.m.
(Budget Study/Work Session 3, if necessary)
Board Of Trustees Meeting Schedule
The next regularly scheduled board of trustees meetings will be held on Thursday, March 6, and Thursday, March 20, at 8 p.m. I encourage all residents to attend board of trustees meetings so as to be thoroughly informed of village issues from a first-hand perspective. I hope to see you at some of the meetings during the year.
