GC Chamber of Commerce Honors: Joanne K. Adams, Allen S. Mathers an Nasser Samman

The chamber’s eighth annual Pineapple Ball will be held next Friday evening, April 23, at the Garden City Hotel. The chamber of commerce will honor the following distinguished members of our community: Joanne K. Adams, as Citizen of the Year; Honorable Allen S. Mathers, with the Community Achievement Award; and Nasser Samman, as Business Person of the Year.  I would like to congratulate each of the honorees on their well-deserved recognition.


Chiefs of the GC Fire Department

The board of trustees join me in extending our sincere gratitude to Chief William J. Graham for the dedicated and professional level of service that he rendered to our village during his tenure as chief of the Garden City Fire Department. Special thanks is also extended to the wives and families of all of the dedicated volunteer firefighters for sharing their husbands with the village and for all of the sacrifices that they make to assure that we are protected.

I am pleased to report that as a result of the fire department election held, Chief William J. Graham will remain in his position as chief of the Garden City Fire Department, along with returning members as follows: First Assistant Charles S. Cavarra, Second Assistant Chief William Castoro, and Third Assistant Chief Joseph Nadolny. We wish them well and thank them for their continued involvement.

Recycling Containers

It has recently come to my attention that residents who move out of the village are taking their recycling containers with them upon their move. Please be advised that these containers are the property of the Village of Garden City and should be left for the next village resident’s use.

Board of Trustees Meetings

The next board of trustees meetings will be on Thursday, May 6, and Thursday, May 20, at 8 p.m. The meeting will be held in the boardroom at Village Hall.

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. For your convenience, listed on the village’s homepage, under the heading of Administration, is a sub-heading “Water Billing Information,” which includes information on water reading.
