  • News: Vandalism Vilified at SC Board Meeting

    At the Sept. 12 Sea Cliff Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Krieb told residents that she was disappointed to announce that since the Sea Cliff Methodist Church opened their Pumpkin Patch to raise funds for the church, it has been the victim of vandalism twice. The church has so far lost more than 50 pumpkins. Both incidents occurred after 2 a.m. On one occasion, it looked as though the property had been driven over with a truck.

    A public hearing to discuss the city's proposed 2007 budget was held at the Glen Cove City Council meeting of Tuesday, Oct. 17. Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi who was presenting the first budget of his administration, remarked that "a lot of work" had gone into the preparation, and he thanked City Controller Sal Lombardi, as well as the city council and the various department heads, who had submitted "wish lists." The mayor said that he was presenting a shorter version than the one used by him, the council and the controller for reasons of clarity, but invited anyone who wished to see the full version to contact him. The mayor told the public that "a budget is not an exact science, but we used large spread sheets with 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 budget numbers" and studied actual and variant numbers. Variables which can impact the budget include large and frequent snowstorms, or storms which cause major destruction to the city, demanding an increase of work on the part of DPW. The mayor complimented the DPW workers, who often are called on to jump in to assist in any unexpected emergency that arises. FULL STORY
