On Sunday, Feb. 5, we were informed by a civic member about a loitering problem that had developed on a dead end block, Alicia Street, which was occurring mostly at night. The activity was such that drug trafficking was/is highly suspected.
On Monday, Feb. 6th, we notified Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia and her secretary Emma Rosasco of the situation and inquired about the procedure to procure a streetlight on the block to help deter the activity. Our liaison POP Officer, PO Paul Lamonaca, at the 8th Precinct was also notified of the situation.
On Tuesday evening, Feb. 7th, a surprised civic member called to report that a new streetlight was installed on the dead end block and was operational!Also on Tuesday, POP Officer Paul Lamonaca emailed us back stating that he would make sure the situation is resolved.
On behalf of the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association I would like to express my sincere thank you to Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia, her Secretary Emma Rosasco and 8th Precinct POP Officer Paul Lamonaca for recognizing and addressing this issue so quickly. Efforts such as these surely help to preserve the quality of life we all want in our community.
