At the last Village of Williston Park meeting, Williston Park Mayor Ludwig Odierna stopped a hearing so that New York State Senator Craig Johnson could present two large checks to the village.
The first check he presented, in the amount of $100,000, was to the Williston Park Fire Department and fire chief William Shannon was on hand to accept the check.
Chief Shannon profusely thanked Senator Johnson on behalf of the fire department and on behalf of all the residents of Williston Park so that they would continue to be able to update the fire department to make it even safer for the residents of Williston Park.
Mayor Odierna accepted the second check, also in the amount of $100,000, from Senator Johnson to be used for the much-needed repair of many of the roads in the Village of Williston Park.
He, too, thanked Senator Johnson on behalf of all the residents of Williston Park.
