Opinion

Recently all the mayors of the incorporated villages within Manhasset endorsed a letter sent to the Manhasset Press from Mayor Nancy Zolezzi, mayor of East Williston and President of the Nassau County Village Officials Association. The Manhasset Press published that letter and now I am reporting on good news on this matter.

I am pleased to report that for this stage of the fight, we have proven victorious. We wanted to decouple the proposed changes to the referendum rules regarding dissolution and/or consolidation of villages from the upcoming NYS budget vote and we were victorious! It is off the budget.

The issue may resurface in another form down the road, but at that time it will be discussed in the light of day rather than as part of a larger more complex topic such as the NYS budget!

We are very grateful for the tireless efforts of Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel who worked so very hard to get this decoupling.

Diana Merenda

Mayor, Plandome Heights
