CERT Resolution: Be Safe in 2006
Winter on Long Island can be beautiful after an ice storm has coated tree branches and bushes with a sparkling layer of ice. However, this beauty can come with a price. The weight of the ice and the brittleness caused by the cold often snaps tree limbs and brings down power lines. This Currier & Ives scene masks the reality that when a blizzard is forecast, a frenzy of buying clears supermarket shelves of bottled water, bread, milk and other necessities and the natural elements can conspire to cause Long Islanders a great deal of grief, particularly those who are homebound and without heat or electricity.
Mayor Holzkamp Concludes Historic Administration
Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp was treated to rousing applause and a standing ovation following regular business at the Glen Cove City Council meeting of Dec. 27, her last meeting as mayor of the City of Glen Cove. Representing the council and reading from a citation to Ms. Holzkamp, Councilman Mike Norman praised the mayor for her "outstanding and historic 13 years of public service to our city." Mayor Holzkamp served on the Glen Cove City Council for eight consecutive years before taking over the reins of the city in January, 2002. Mr. Norman said, "Mary Ann Holzkamp made history on January 1, 2002 when she was sworn in as the first woman mayor of the City of Glen Cove. A vigorous worker who incorporated a proactive partnership approach to getting things done efficiently, Mayor Holzkamp became the driving political force behind the revitalization of the waterfront. She secured millions of dollars to fund the cleanup of contaminated waste at Captain's Cove and selected the developer for the waterfront's future." Councilman Norman called her work "the "initiation of a project that was once thought to be unattainable...the cleanup and transformation of our long-neglected and polluted waterfront."
