Senior Housing Application Gets Mixed Reviews
Civic leaders and senior citizens gathered last Thursday at the Hicksville Public Library to learn about a proposal that, if approved, would grant Robert Behringer, president of Carriage Hill Associates, a change of zoning and the right to construct Cantiague Commons, a group of senior housing units at the current site of the Twin County Asphalt Plant.

District Court Halts Enforcement of Nassau's Smoking Ban

State law will take effect July 24.
