Friday, 10 August 2012 00:00

Glen Cove has received a critical allocation of funding for the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal and Boat Basin Project. The city received $875,951 from the Federal Highway Administration to construct the phase of the LEED-standard terminal building that will service commuters, including ticket sales, passenger waiting areas and customer service offices.  Funding was secured with the assistance of the New York State Congressional Delegation, including Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and Representative Peter King.  

Mayor Ralph Suozzi said, “This is great news for the city and for Long Island.  The funding from the Federal Highway Administration’s Ferry Boat Discretionary Program, through the New York State Department of Transportation, will allow the city to begin construction of the Ferry Terminal Building, which is a key component of the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal and Boat Basin Project. I am grateful to the New York State Congressional Delegation for their efforts, for their commitment, and for their continued support and partnership in helping Glen Cove to revitalize our waterfront and pursue economic opportunities that will benefit our city and our region.”

Contracts awarded for transfer station and recyclables maintenance

During a lengthy Glen Cove City Council meeting, attended by about 100 people, a variety of topics were covered, from giving appreciation to all of those who put in their time and manpower to clean up the debris from the storm of July 18 to a heated discussion about the awarding of contracts to two companies for operation and maintenance of the city’s waste disposal and recyclable materials. Several public hearings were held, and the city hired five police officers to replace some of the expected retirees. Councilman Anthony Jimenez was absent from the meeting.

The council passed a resolution authorizing the city to award a contract to Winters Bros. Recycling Corp. to provide operation and maintenance of the transfer station and solid waste transport and disposal services, and to Galaxy Recycling Inc. to provide the city’s recyclables transport and disposal services, for a combined overall estimated cost of $15,591,867.36 over 10 years. The contracts were set to commence Aug. 1 for 10 years, with each contract having three consecutive five-year mutually agreed upon extensions.

80-year-old gazebo crushed during storm

Last week, Glen Cove lost one of its most recognizable monuments as a result of treacherous weather: the gazebo at Morgan Memorial Park. The details of the storm and its aftermath were big news all around Long Island, and unfortunately, residents of this community are feeling the loss.

The storm on Wednesday, July 18 left downed trees and power outages in its wake, but perhaps the most astonishing effect was the flattening of the 80-year-old gazebo in Morgan Memorial Park. The gazebo was built by J.P. Morgan in 1932 and has been used by city residents as a place of solace, an escape from the harsh rays of the sun and as perfect photo opportunity for wedding parties and other events over the year’s.


Family Carnival Raises $5K For Children’s Tumor Foundation

The Perfetti’s 4th annual carnival proves to be another success

When times are tough, throw a party. That was the solution that A.J. Perfetti, 13, came up with four years ago to help raise money for his sister, Julia, who has a rare tumor disorder, and the annual carnival held at their home is becoming a staple of the Glen Cove community – one that raises an average of $5,000 a year.

Julia was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, or NF, at age four, a life-threatening, progressive condition that causes numerous tumors to grow throughout her entire body, and for which there is no cure or treatment. Her mom, Laura, says she gets migraines roughly three times per week and will soon be on three different medications. Though she remains positive, life is not always easy for the 9-year-old girl, who her mom says often has a lot of anxiety over not feeling well in certain social situations. Holding the carnival is a fun way for the family to raise money for research for Julia’s disease.

Glen Cove City Court prohibits 4 Park Place Corp. from continuing operation

After several weeks of proceedings, the City of Glen Cove’s request for a restraining order against 4 Park Place Corporation, owned by John Doxey, was approved by the Honorable Richard J. McCord, Glen Cove City Court judge, on Friday, July 13. The court’s order prohibits the corporation from continuing its scrap metal processing and junkyard operation adjacent to the city’s waterfront, and from conducting any further activities at the property in violation of the city’s zoning ordinance.

“This order protects the city’s sensitive waterfront, and upholds the integrity of our zoning laws. Judge McCord’s decision will ensure that 4 Park Place Corporation and Mr. Doxey shall not be able to continue demolishing commercial vehicles loaded with hydraulic fluid and motor oil adjacent to Glen Cove Creek, and that this property shall only be used in a manner that does not violate the city’s zoning laws, does not threaten the environment, and only for such activities that are permitted and lawful,” said Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi.
