This didn’t stop local officials from calling the ruling a “win for taxpayers” during a press conference last Thursday. Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, along with numerous members of local and state government, were out in full force to applaud the decision, and plead to the powers that be to not grant a successful MTA appeal.
In the wake of a storm that blew through Mineola, a meeting was held at the Nassau County Legislature building to discuss the construction phase of the project that will overhaul storm drainage systems in Mineola and the border of Carle Place. Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss, along with members of the Village Department of Public Works, State Senator Jack Martins, County Legislator Rich Nicolello and North Hempstead Town officials attended the meeting.
Dos Santos made it home just in time when the booms began. What started out as light rain continued with thunderous roars from the skies above, lightning strikes and treacherous roads not easily navigated. Second Street, just east of Roslyn Road, went from street to sea in a matter of minutes.
Last Thursday, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilman Thomas Dwyer met with an audience of up to 40 Roslyn Heights residents to introduce a new idea for getting the long-dormant pool and tennis courts open.
Representatives from MP presented new changes to its 315-unit apartment complex to the Mineola Village Board on Aug. 8. The board reserved its decision on the project with developer Ken Lalezarian looking for approval from the Nassau County Planning Commission (NCPC) and some tax help via the Nassau Industrial Development Agency (IDA).
With the help of 7th Senate District Senator Jack Martins, MHS will offer Portuguese to incoming eighth-grade students starting with the 2012-13 school year. Martins attained a waiver from the state education department (SED) to grant the high school permission to offer the class. The program will grow to ninth-through 12th grades over the next five years.
The New Hyde Park resident put the speculation to bed on Aug. 1. Standing on the steps of the Nassau County Supreme Court Building in Mineola, Scaturro, 40, announced his intention to run on the Conservative Party line against incumbent Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy.
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) announced the approval of an economic development compact for a proposed $93 million complex in downtown Mineola that will provide much needed housing for working young professionals and affordable housing for seniors on Aug. 1.
The compact, approved by the IDA board on July 23, will allow Mill Creek Residential Trust (MCRT) to construct a five-story, 275-unit, apartment building at Old Country Road and Willis Avenue in Mineola known as “The Winston.” In addition, Mill Creek will build a four-story, 36-unit, building on Front Street and Roslyn Road in Mineola known as “The Churchill” with 36-unit senior affordable apartments. These projects, close to the Mineola LIRR Station and bus terminal, will replace several functionally obsolete office buildings and vacant land.
Martins “tipped his hat” to Governor Andrew Cuomo concerning initiatives including the new 2 percent tax cap, a timely budget process, the states dealings concerning the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and state school district issues, most notably unfunded mandates.
Maragos also said that County Executive Edward P. Mangano would be announcing a fresh round of budget reductions. And that is what happened at a press conference on Monday, July 23. There, Mangano, along with Maragos and Presiding Officer Peter J. Schmitt (R – Massapequa) outlined a $45 million deficit reduction plan, one that the county executive said would balance the budget without raising property taxes.
