Until this decision was issued, cellars in homes located in the Town of North Hempstead were only being permitted for storage purposes.

Taking the oath of office commencing his fourth term as North Hempstead Supervisor, Jon Kaiman declared it “a new beginning.” The New Year’s Day inauguration ceremony also included the swearing in of Town Clerk Leslie Gross and town board members Angelo Ferrara, Viviana Russell and Lee Seeman.

Governor David A. Paterson signed into law last week pension reform legislation in North Hempstead Town Hall that is expected to provide more than $35 billion in long-term savings to New York taxpayers over the next 30 years. It will, he said, save $8.5 billion on Long Island and will provide much needed long-term property tax relief.
Underground on Long Island there are vast aquifers filled with water, some closer to the surface and more susceptible to polluting influences, others deep with pristine waters thousands of years old. Water knows no boundaries. The water in the aquifers flows in various directions based on geology, not political boundaries.
