South 14th Street Plan Needs Approval

A project that would remediate flood issues at South 14th Street and 6th Avenue in New Hyde Park has yet to go out to bid. The plan also includes repaving the Village Hall parking lot.

 

“We’re working with our engineers to get that done,” Mayor Robert Lofaro said. “The parking lot at Village Hall, that bid has not gone out yet either. We will be going out to bid on a requirements contract to replace the current contract that’s currently expired.”

 

Village officials say its engineers, Dvirka & Bartilucci, are in the final pre-bid stages and will be soliciting prospective contractors in August.

 

“Our engineers are still working everything out,” Lofaro said. “We’ll know more in a few weeks. We’d hope to get it started in September and finished in October. That is certainly our hope for this plan.”

 

Then-Senator Craig Johnson secured a $150,000 grant when he was in office for the project. The money was restored by current Senator Jack Martins after grants secured by Johnson were eliminated after Johnson’s loss to Martins in the 2010 election.

 

“If we had the grant money from the start, it might have been different,” said Lofaro.

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV- D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.

 

The disease disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.

New Hyde Park Village Mayor Robert Lofaro gave a local laundromat until Wednesday, Oct. 15 to appear in village court to address property issues, mainly appearance and a lack of signage, or face arrest.

 

A final letter was sent to the tenant, Lofaro said.

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said. 

The Sewanhaka Indians relied heavily on its offense in the first two victories and head coach George Kasimatis relies on one player to set the tone for his group; senior, running back Brenton Mighty. 

 

Mighty is versatile as a running back, as he possesses the ability to run hard between the tackles, lower his shoulder and run into the defender, or run to the outside and break one deep. He also has good hands and is utilized by quarterback Elijah Tracey, as a receiver out of the backfield. 

 

“He makes such a difference in the run game,” said Kasimatis. “Teams have to respect that and it opens up the pass and the possibility for a lot of play action passes.”
