After holding several hearings on the matter, the Glen Cove City Council voted at its most recent meeting to restrict parking in the Thompson Park area. Residents there claim that too many people coming to Action Motors and other businesses near that neighborhood park on their streets all day.
Parking restrictions, therefore, on LaMarcus Avenue, Highfield Road, Marietta Road and Arbor Place are now amended to prevent non-residents from using these streets. A No Parking rule will now be in effect from 2 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both sides of these streets.
Separately, two issues regarding city garages were voted on. First, after receiving bids, the city council voted to authorize the city purchasing agent to enter into contract with the “lowest responsible bidder,” Belnord Sterling (Sal Paolillo & Sons, Inc.), of 37 Cottage Row in Glen Cove for the installation of LED lights in the Brewster Street Garage. The cost will be $102,875.
The council also voted to authorize the city to enter into a $150,000 contract with Structural Preservation Systems, Inc. of Floral Park, related to repair needs in both the Pulaski Street and Brewster Street garages.
The Department of Public Works has submitted on this matter that its inspections reveal that “certain structural components are in immediate need of repair to ensure their continued integrity and to protect the general public’s health, safety and welfare,” and that “time is of the essence with regard to the garage frames which require immediate action before the winter season due to the fact that the work to be performed is temperature sensitive.”
Separately, a contract was authorized for a middle school coordinator for the Glen Cove After 3 Program. An annual salary of $38,500 will be made available through the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program, which was created by Congress to award education and enrichment related grants.
