News

No matter what, one thing is certain—there’s no better way to spend a sticky summer evening on Long Island than camped out at an exciting outdoor concert.

 

Dazzling a crowd at Memorial Park on Albert Street in New Hyde Park that just seemed to grow and grow as the evening went on, the talented foursome of Marty G and The G Men pumped out some of the most toe-tappin’ hits of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s...plus a few original tunes for good measure, on Wednesday, July 9.

The New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District miscalculated more than $8 million in expenses from 2008-13, creating illusory budget surpluses (about $6.3 million), according to a report by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office.

 

The financial report said New Hyde Park transferred money to reserves and appropriated unexpended surplus funds to reduce the district’s tax levy. According to the comptroller’s office, more than $3 million of the district’s fund balance appropriated over the five-year period was not used.

 

“These practices gave the appearance that the district’s fund balance was within the legal limit when in effect it exceeded the limit each year,” the report stated. “We also found that the district routinely funded its retirement contribution reserve with operating surpluses at year end, instead of funding the reserve through the annual budget process, which would have been more transparent to taxpayers.”
