From one day to the next, the race for leading Nassau County out of a fiscal swamp has become super-charged as the possibility of three Democrats fighting for the county executive hot spot to oppose incumbent Republican Edward Mangano in the general election takes shape.
The first Democratic candidate who filed, Adam Haber, has already charged that former county executive Thomas Suozzi, in for a rematch, failed the county due to “his tax hikes, budget deficits or back-room deals... no-show Suozzi will keep failing to lead on the issues that matter to middle class families.” Anton News reached out to Mr. Haber’s press secretary, but at press time had not yet received a response.
After months of dialogue with registered architects, professional engineers, building industry and real estate professionals, Supervisor Jon Kaiman, the North Hempstead Town Board and the Town’s Buildings Department announced that penalty fees usually associated with unpermitted work will be suspended from July 2 through Dec. 31, 2013.
The town board has also adopted a series of new policies and practices geared toward replacing several dated procedures that have caused unnecessary hardship and delays in the filing of applications and the issuance of permits.
In June, numerous youth agencies received notice that their county contracts would be cancelled and funding eliminated on July 5 if Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano’s fiscal recovery plan was not approved.
“You need to be thoughtful,” says Ira Rheingold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates. “This is not a panacea. This is not free money. You’re basically taking the equity out of your home. You’re not going to be able to use the money for anything else.”
Also a tradition, the community is invited to the Frolic walk-thru to visit and bear witness to their spectacular effort. It is such a major undertaking that the committee began planning and coordinating in September 2011. Many senior parents and other community members contributed to the Frolic, including several former frolic chairs.
And that is what happened as the board voted 5-2 to approve the acquisition of the 7.2 acres of land on the Roslyn Country Club in Roslyn Heights. The cost of the acquisition is $7.5 million as the board also approved a bond for that same amount. Voting to approve the resolution was Supervisor Jon Kaiman, plus board members Thomas Dwyer, Lee Seeman, Viviana Russell and Anna Kaplan. Voting in opposition were Angelo Ferrara and Dina DeGiorgio.
A storm watch was in effect June 22, and the downpour limited access to the Manhasset High School Class of 2012 Graduation Ceremony for some when it was held in the gymnasium but did nothing to damper the spirits of those seated, waiting excitedly for the students to enter. Inside, the early arrivals greeted and congratulated each other and couldn’t stop smiling while outside the torrential rains brought the temperature down to high 70s from high 90s—the only silver lining to the miserable weather.
On schedule, the Manhasset High School Symphony Orchestra performed “Pomp and Circumstance” under the direction of Mrs. Caroline Shyr as students marched into the gym amid a controlled frenzy of family and friends recording the event with cameras, cell phones, videos, and precious memory.
A reception honoring staff and school community leaders of the Manhasset School District was held on Tuesday, June 5, in the high school Black Box Theatre.
The evening’s program sponsored by the Manhasset Board of Education: Carlo Prinzo, president; Regina Rule, vice president, and Patricia Aitken, Craig Anderson, and Cindy Cardinal, trustees, recognized outgoing SCA, SEPTA and PASE officers, current Tower Foundation officers, Indians Rock Committee, members of the five board-appointed Citizens’ Advisory Committees, and newly tenured elementary and secondary teachers.
The new park, which includes a swimming pool on Country Club grounds, would be open to all town residents, a town spokesman said. Authorization for this purchase will be on the town board calendar on the Tuesday, June 19 meeting, one to be held at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall, 220 Plandome Road.
Coalition Against Substance Abuse (CASA) cares and has maintained a presence in Manhasset for a long time, often ignored, some might observe.
