Routine Business at City Council Meeting
Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp was sick with the flu, so Councilman Michael Norman presided over the meeting of the Glen Cove City Council on Tuesday, March 23. A public hearing to discuss the 2004-2005 Community Development Block Grant was the first order of business, and Rosemary Olsen, executive director of the CDA, gave an overview of proposals and requests for grants that were submitted by youth groups, senior citizen groups and the housing authority, among others. Among those that will be fully or partly funded is the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club, which is looking to be able to open nights and school holidays with more programs to offer to the youth of the city. A new apprenticeship program is seeking funding, a joint venture involving the Youth Board, La Fuerza Unida, and the Chamber of Commerce, with the purpose of stimulating job opportunities for teenagers and young adults. The Youth Board will recruit personnel, La Fuerza will assist non-English-speaking youth and the Chamber will work to find businesses that would like to take on young apprentices. From there, hopefully, a teenager could work his or her way to a paying job, either part time or full time.
GCHS Students to Memorialize Terry Petikas
The Glen Cove High School Student Senate is planning to build a memorial in the form of an information board and brick path in memory of the late Terry Petikas, founder of Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. The memorial will be adjacent to the flagpole in the front of the school. The information board will inform students, parents and staff of upcoming events and important information pertaining solely to the high school. The memorial will be designed by the students. The brick path will be made up of engraved bricks which are being sold by the Student Senate and purchased by students, parents, staff and community members. The 4-inch by 8-inch bricks can have a message engraved and/or the name of the donor. In addition, 8-inch by 8-inch bricks will be available for larger messages and company sponsors. The prices are $75 and $150 respectively.
