State's #1 Main Street in Glen Cove
The New York Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials, (NYCOM), has awarded Glen Cove's downtown revitalization project first place in the statewide "Main Street" competition. According to Edward C. Farrell, NYCOM executive director, "Glen Cove is a model for public-private partnership for other villages and cities throughout New York State. Under Mayor Suozzi's leadership they have turned their downtown around and people are taking notice. Over 50 communities were part of this year's competition and Glen Cove was clearly the best. We commend the mayor and citizens of Glen Cove for their efforts and look forward to their continued success in the downtown."
Board Decides to Offer Voters Identical Budget
The Glen Cove Board of Education met on May 22 to consider three options available to them following the failure of next year's proposed $47,789,674 school budget at the polls. Interim superintendent of schools Dr. Eliot Garfinkel said he had evaluated the results of the vote held on May 16. "The turnout was not very heavy and the budget went down by just about 200 votes. There was misinformation throughout the community and in Newsday which caused confusion. Any cut in the budget as proposed would significantly impact programs for the children. I recommend we go out with the same budget," said Dr. Garfinkel. The interim superintendent said the objective is to get out more "yes" votes and make it clear that the estimated tax increase will be 6.2 percent.
