A Center of Opportunity for Day Laborers in Glen Cove
A quiet, year-long collaboration between Glen Cove Mayor Thomas Suozzi, La Fuerza Unida de Glen Cove, Catholic Charities, the Long Island Community Foundation and several religious organizations has brought to fruition a new, indoor and permanent gathering place for day laborers in Glen Cove. The space has been donated by Rich Mohring and is located just off Sea Cliff Avenue, a heavily traveled thoroughfare in an industrial/residential neighborhood. The Glen Cove Opportunity Center was made official on June 25 as Mayor Thomas Suozzi said, "There are two sides to the day laborer issue-one side is passionate to get them out of here and the other side wants to work to help them because they are immigrants just as their ancestors were." As other communities on Long Island have either closed their gathering spots for day laborers or refused to assist them, Glen Cove has taken a dramatic step toward a model facility.
Meeting on Creek's Radioactive Dredge Spoils
The recent discovery of radioactive nuggets in the dredge spoils of Glen Cove Creek by the Army Corps of Engineers has heightened health concerns and put a stumbling block in the city's quest for a revitalized waterfront. According to EPA officials the radioactive material, currently being stored on the LiTungsten Superfund site, poses no harm to humans unless it is ingested and/or one comes into direct contact with it over a long period of time. They also said no fugitive dust was detected during EPA air monitoring of the vicinity.
