Son says father was removed as a volunteer

Michael Dolan Sr. was removed as a New Hyde Park volunteer firefighter on Tuesday April 2, according to his son, Michael Jr. The senior Dolan had been suspended nine months ago, after both Dolans were charged by the Nassau County district attorney’s office with stealing 65 Kidde smoke detectors from the department. 

 

Third degree larceny charges against the two, filed in mid-July 2012, have since been dropped. Fire officials declined to comment on any aspect of the senior Dolan’s case. 

The younger Dolan was said by an independent hearing officer to have had no knowledge of the removal of the smoke detectors and the department should take no action against him.

Tentative budget doesn’t pierce state cap

The village of New Hyde Park proposed a $5.8 million budget for the 2012-14 year, a $39,350.69 increase from the previous year, but the new fiscal plan will not break the state-imposed tax cap. New York State set the village’s allowable tax levy increase at about 2.23 percent ($88,639.96).

New Hyde Park’s final levy mirrored the state’s figure. The total tax levy at press time is $4,068,439.57. Residents would pay $31.32 more in taxes per year should the budget be approved as is.

It was the first such change at the top in New Hyde Park in a dozen years. Robert Lofaro’s 14-year journey through the village ranks took him from trustee to deputy mayor and now, the mayor’s seat.

Lofaro was sworn into office at Village Hall on Monday, April 1 while two other returning trustees were sworn in once again. Lofaro outlined some of his goals before a packed William Gill Theatre.

“We want to keep our taxes stable, we want to continue our road projects that began in 2001,” Lofaro said.

Marietta DiCamillo continues to fight the good fight for New Hyde Park

You can blame a hole in the floor of the Parkville Library back in the early 1990s for putting longtime New Hyde Park resident Marietta DiCamillo on the road to civic activism. At the time, she was pulling serious hours wearing a number of hats as the office manager/financial controller/head of IT and HR at the Independent Federation of Flight Attendants (IFFA). But given the pride she had (and continues to have) in her community, this was one issue DiCamillo wasn’t going to let slide. 

 

Hearty Farewell To Petruccio

Applause erupted when the gavel hit the base, but Daniel Petruccio admitted it might have been only the second time he’s used it since winning the office of mayor in New Hyde Park 12 years ago. 

“I can’t even give it to Bob, sadly,” he said, holding the gavel. “It’s got my name on it.” He was referring to the new mayor, Robert Lofaro.

Community leaders, activists and village mainstays were out in full force for Petruccio’s last meeting on Tuesday, March 26. He held the post for 12 years.

How a love of learning drives

Little Treasures Preschool

Good things come in small packages and for Kathy Richards, that would be the 2-, 3-and 4-year-old little ones or “friends” that attend Little Treasures of New Hyde Park, the preschool she co-founded with a friend eight years ago. It’s the culmination of her eternal love and desire to get in front of a classroom of children just setting out their educational journey.

Hempstead to receive $3.4 million, chunk goes to Elmont

Elmont will receive $325,000 of the $3.4 million awarded to the Town of Hempstead for town-wide residential and downtown improvement projects, Nassau County officials revealed last week.

Every year, a pool of federal money dubbed Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) is made available to local municipalities in order to improve the lives of residents in both public and private spaces. Areas near Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont will be revitalized, totaling $250,000. Approximately $75,000 will be allocated for projects relating to “Community Corners.” Hempstead applied for these grants in early 2012.
