Repair Shop Request

Aris Papangelopoulos will expand his business to 188 Herricks Rd. in Mineola after getting approval from the Mineola Board of Trustees recently. The 15-year mechanic says his current shop on Broadway in Garden City Park is too small.

 

“I’ve outgrown the space that I’m renting right now,” he said at a recent public hearing. “I need a special use permit before I buy [188 Herricks Rd.].”

 

Papangelopoulos’ current location can hold four cars, while the new spot can handle 10-12. He also plans to build four car lifts in the new spot and house additional vehicles.

 

“You won’t be keeping an inventory of a lot of stuff, correct?,” trustee Dennis Walsh said. 

 

Papangelopoulos said he would not buy or sell used cars on the property and not keep an inventory of miscellaneous products. He also said he will not have a paint booth in the shop, which one resident hoped for.

 

“There are backyards for homes there ,” Marino Rovita said. “We’re concerned with noise and air pollution. We already have two mechanics down there. We can smell paint and fumes.”

 

Papangelopoulos said he will recycle oil in a waste oil heater at the site and plans to install “green” LED exterior lights on the building, which will be fitted with motion sensors.

 

“We’re strictly a repair shop,” he said. “The lighting is all solar-powered on the outside of the building. If there’s any activity at night, the lights will go on.”

 

Operating hours would be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

“Residents want assurance that you’re not going to negatively impact their lives anymore than they already are,” Mayor Scott Strauss said.

In their semifinals home playoff game, the 9-year-old Mineola Chiefs (7-2) shut out perennial power Seaford Broncos 21-0. 

 

The Chiefs defense, the strength of the team, was lights out, making gang tackles all over the field. The defensive line of Charlie Villa, Luigi Kaloudis, Michael Nygaard, Luke Ruiz, John Jochym, Zachary Bohringer, Johnny Kessler, Zakria Zulfiqar and Jack McCormack kept the pressure on Seaford’s offense all game long. The Linebackers John Viggiani and Nick Rios attacked the runners and finished off the Broncos.
