As a Town of North Hempstead councilwoman, I am writing to you on behalf of the many constituents and groups, who over the past few months, have contacted me regarding the increased aircraft traffic and noise. In addition, they have also notified our 311 call center about aircraft flying at very low altitudes more frequently, often over hospitals, schools, as well as residences.
It is imperative, prior to the Next-Gen program being implemented, that the FAA conduct environmental impact studies that show the effects of these increased routes on the North Hempstead community. I am very concerned about the additional routes impacting the quality of life in our town.
I will continue to speak with members of the community as well as our various government representatives about this issue.
Clearly, this is a critical matter that needs environmental study and continuing scrutiny.
I thank you for your attention to this difficult issue.
North Hempstead Town Councilwoman, Lee R. Seeman

New Hyde Park is still awaiting Superstorm Sandy FEMA reimbursements, Mayor Robert Lofaro revealed. The village operates on a budget of about $5.8 million.
Public works superintendent Tom Gannon and village clerk Cathryn Hillmann spent numerous hours on forms and expenses for storm reimbursement. Lofaro said the fund balance is tiny and that if, say $300,000 was spent, the fund needs to be replenished quickly.

The Village of New Hyde Park is finally accepting bids for Operation Main Street, according to trustee Donald Barbieri. The final piece of the project has been given the go-ahead by the state Department of Transportation, albeit after a tug-and-pull between the two entities.
Construction could begin in late June, early July. The board will open bids from contractors on June 6 to complete the project to upgrade the business district along Jericho Turnpike.

The Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padres took on Dominick’s Deli Braves on a sun-drenched Sunday afternoon. Hunter Dunn, Jake Gruosso, and Julian Dewitte laced three straight singles to start the home first for the well-oiled Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padre machine. Solid hits were contributed by Thomas Vieni, Trevor Boshnack, and Ben Harnick. Michael O’Grady clobbered the second Padre double of 2013 into left center. In the field Stephen Coffey, Chris Erxelben, and Stephen Lopez provided amazing glove work.
