As March approached and with the New York area finally seeing green grass after a long winter of several snowstorms, the Village of Massapequa Park Board of Trustees made one last budget transfer to its snow removal budget. At the Feb. 28 meeting, the BOT approved the transfer of $9,400 from the Unallocated Insurance budget and $12,000 from Unemployment Insurance to its Snow Removal-Contractural expense budget. More specifically, the monies would be used for the salt and sand portion of the budget.
In other village news, the BOT voted to continue discussion on a proposal to consider the installation of a No Right Turn on red signal sign at the intersection of Roosevelt Avenue and Clark Boulevard for southbound traffic.
Several other proposals were approved by the BOT, including one that authorizes an agreement with the village and Municipay Nationwide Payment Solutions of Scarborough, ME to provide credit card service to the village for the acceptance of credit cards.
In another service vote, the BOT approved an application by Alliance Electrical Inspection, Ltd., West Islip as an Electrical Inspection Agency for the village. A sign permit application by South Shore Dental Care was also approved. In addition, the BOT approved, with modifications, the request from the St. Rose of Lima Family Festival to hang a banner from June 20 through July 25 of this year at the Long Island Rail Road Station in Massapequa.
The next BOT meeting will take place next Monday evening, March 14 at Village Hall, 151 Front St.
