City's First Step to Reassessment
During the Glen Cove City Council meeting of April 25, Mayor Thomas Suozzi announced that the city plans to reassess property in Glen Cove by June 1, 2001. And next week, the city council will decide which firm will conduct the reassessment. Mayor Suozzi said, "The current system is simply unfair. By reassessing, Glen Cove is leading the way toward fairness and equity in the assessment system. The current system is costing Glen Cove taxpayers $3 million in tax refunds this year alone; that's $1 million for the city and $2 million for the school district."
$2 million for Walk on the Water
State Senator Carl Marcellino came to town on Tuesday, April 25, toting a $2 million check for the City of Glen Cove's waterfront. The money, a grant administered by the NY State Department of Transportation and part of the federal Transportation Equity Act, is to be used for the building of a pedestrian walkway/esplanade along Glen Cove Creek. The pedestrian walkway is an integral part of the city's ambitious waterfront revitalization effort. In fact, when re-zoning the area in anticipation of future construction, the city included specifications that any development must include pedestrian access along the water.

Vikings Continue to Struggle
The North Shore Vikings are now (1-4) in their regular season. The Vikings last year had an overall losing season winning only a small percentage of their games. This year looks as though there may be a repeat of the '99 season for the unlucky North Shore Vikings squad. It is quite difficult at this point in the Vikings' season to make any sort of astounding comeback. This year seems as though the competition and drive of all the teams in conference C/D has risen a substantial amount.
