(Editor’s Note: The following letter is a response to a recent submission from Owen Magee, which cited lack of proper maintenance along Route 106/107 in addition to surrounding areas in Hicksville.)
My wife and I are 46-year residents of what was a beautiful hamlet. It is no longer!
Mr. Magee talks about downtown and Route 106/107. How about the rest of Hicksville? Nassau County, the Town of Oyster Bay and the state – in addition to the residents – are all at fault because nobody cares!
When is the downtown rehabilitation going to be completed? Nobody knows and nobody cares.
For many years I was at loggerheads with the above jurisdictions. But I got labeled as a troublemaker and a pain in the behind. I gave up because no one else would get involved. I am 78 years old and I don’t complain anymore about the lack of services (taxes increase, services decrease). Why? Because nobody cares!
