Problem Oriented Police Officer Nick Mosesso was the guest speaker at the last New Hyde Park Village Board meeting.

He provided a brief overview of the POP program and explained how the county budget cuts will impact his unit and the Third Precinct overall, but he did not say whether or not his position has been cut; however, other POP officers in the Third Precinct have been eliminated and they are back on routine patrol.

At the village meeting the residents engaged in a long discussion regarding noise, public nuisance and parking problems as the result of the patrons at the Billiard facility on Jericho Turnpike. Plus, there was a discussion regarding parking and noise issues at Memorial Park.

In order to address some of these problems it was discussed that members of the board and Officer Mosesso will meet with the owner and operator of the Billiards Hall prior to the renewal of that license; plus there was a discussion of possible signage in the Billiards Hall to educate patrons on where not to park, plus the board will revisit the parking ordinance on North 12th Street.

Further, Officer Mosesso will ask police units to patrol North 12 Street and the immediate area on Saturday nights and to issue parking tickets if appropriate.

The first report was by Trustee Richard Coppola who said the Parks Department has received a number of permits for use this spring season in the parks. He said the committee will be meeting soon to review those requests.

Trustee Coppola, who arranged for Officer Mosesso to come and speak to the board and to the residents, thanked him for his time.

He also reported that the New Hyde Park Little League registration is underway at village hall.

The New Hyde Park Rescue Fire Company will be holding its 75th Anniversary Dinner on Feb. 21.

Deputy Mayor Lofaro reported that Superintendent of Public Works James McCloat was unable to attend the meeting due to the fact that he was working late on snow removal.

He also reported that the budget for snow renewal has been expended, due to the recent number of snowstorms and ice conditions that the village has had to deal with. The superintendent and the board are monitoring the situation.

Lofaro also reported that the village has received two responses to the RF2/RFQ for design work to be done at village hall. No decision has been made at this time.

Deputy Mayor Lofaro reported in the absence of Trustee Donald Barbieri that Trustee Barbieri attended the recent meeting of the LIRR regarding the proposed fare increases and the removal of a ticket agent from the New Hyde Park LIRR station. His testimony in protest of those proposals was read into the record.

The New Hyde Park Village Board will be watching any allocation of monies from the LIRR to see where those monies are being spent.

Mayor Petruccio reported he was going to attend a meeting of local community mayors to address various issues affecting the various villages. Cub Pack No. 489 requested and received permission to use Marcus Christ Hall on Feb. 27 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
