School Board Considers Agenda
The Glen Cove Board of Education met on Dec. 11 for a work session and to set the agenda for their Dec. 18 public meeting to be held in the Gribbin Elementary School. The board members discussed a broad range of topics, including a proposal by board member Bill Boeddener to have the assistant to the superintendent for business, Frank Fiumano, explore the feasibility of closing three of the district's six school buildings in order to save money. The board's policy regarding attendance, security and weapons will be discussed at length during next Monday's meeting as will, among other items, the acceptance of a minigrant and a gift; a report on personnel; registration for school district voting; and financial reports.
Junior Baseball/Softball Fields Questions on Practices
On Dec. 7, City Hall was the venue for politics in sports as the Glen Cove Junior Baseball/Softball Association board fielded questions from a room full of visibly upset residents during an unprecedented open forum. The association carries a roster of over 900 children who play either baseball or softball. The forum was held in response to a concerted effort put forth by many in the audience, some of whom were turned down for board positions; almost all of whom felt it was about time the board was answerable to the public. Members of the board had a hard time getting in a word edgewise while tempers flared on both sides of the dais.
