Garden City By Way Of Glen Cove

Written by Dave Gil de Rubio Friday, 28 March 2014 00:00

With retiring Village Administrator Robert Schoelle leaving such a large impression behind him, the Garden City Board of Trustees made an equally large splash announcing the hiring of former Glen Cove mayor Ralph V. Suozzi to be Schoelle’s heir apparent effective March 31. The announcement was made at the board of trustees meeting held on Thursday, March 20. Suozzi’s new responsibility as village administrator will find him reporting to Mayor John Watras and the board of trustees as the chief operating officer, responsible for leading and managing the daily operational activities of the village. The Glen Cove native was plucked from an initial pool of 120 applicants found by AffionPublic, a national municipal search firm that was tapped by the search committee of Trustees Richard Silver, Andrew Cavanaugh and Brian Daughney to aid in filling the position. The search process was an arduous one according to Mayor Watras.

 

“The committee I assigned to do the search did a wonderful job, spent many hours at it and brought to us a slate of very qualified people, including Mr. Suozzi who we think will be a very valuable asset to Garden City,” he said.

Representatives from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Department of Health presented the proposed remedial action plan for the Ronhill Cleaners site at last week’s public hearing at Glen Cove City Hall. The site, located at

Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Sites, representing a significant threat to public health and the environment.

Spinello at the future downtown site of Panera Bread. The City of Glen Cove was chosen by Panera based on the company’s demographic research, which showed that Glen Cove is a prime location for their restaurant.
