Is Mangano’s Coliseum Deal Worth A Nassau County Tax Increase?

Written by Diane Yatauro Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his Republican Legislative Caucus have called for an August 1st referendum where County residents can vote on his plan to raze the Nassau Veterans Coliseum and replace it with a new structure, add a new minor league baseball stadium, appropriate parking and maybe some retail stores. If voters approve, Mr. Mangano will turn the mid-county area known as the HUB into a major sports entertainment complex. No matter how he spins it, Mr. Mangano is asking county residents to vote themselves a tax increase. Independent estimates say the increase could be 4 percent per household. That belief was echoed by board members of the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) at their July 14 meeting.

 

Letter: Supports Proposed Coliseum Project

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00

The proposed coliseum project is critical to Nassau County’s economic revival. It will create jobs immediately: 1,500 construction jobs and more than 3,000 permanent jobs. It will help Nassau County get back on its feet economically by generating development in the area and injecting much needed cash into the County’s coffers.

Nassau County was scheduled to hold the first of a series of free Chelsea Summer Concerts on Wednesday, July 13 on the front lawn of the Chelsea Mansion in Muttontown. The Sea Cliff Players were performing. The Wednesday evening “Village Night” was to honor a special group of county residents who have donated their time and support to various Nassau County parks and preserves.

“Again, it is Nassau County’s pleasure to be able to acknowledge the many people and organizations that have willingly supported our county facilities,” said Edward P. Mangano, Nassau County Executive, of the recurring event.

Ann Marie Hosey Knows Oyster Bay

Ann Marie Hosey was the first caller to identify the mystery picture in the July 7 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the bocce courts behind the Italian-American Club. We [she and her husband Pete] were there when you took the picture! And the truck in the background is down at St. Rocco’s feast right now!”

Another caller, but who missed leaving their name said, “Hey. I’m just calling about the mystery picture. It’s absolutely overlooking the bocce courts at the Italian-American Club. That’s all I have to say!” Right!

 

Unless You’re In It, You’re Out of It

Someone made a great comment about Oyster Bay that we just had to pass along to you. Not that you don’t know it is true, but it’s nice to see it in black and white.

He said, ‘The thing about Oyster Bay is that unless you’re in it – you’re out of it.”

Mystery Picture Remains a Mystery

The mystery picture from the June 30 issue of the Enterprise Pilot remains a mystery, but we are sure you know what it is. Not having the answers is typical when the newspaper goes to press early. But, it’s always a hoot to get a few toots on the horn with stories about how you did recognize the photo.

Ginny Serringer said of the mystery picture in the June 23 Enterprise Pilot, “It’s Summit Street and South Street – I don’t know the name of the church but there it is by State Bank.”

FYI: the church is the Hood A.M.E. Zion Church.

Billy Minicozzi called to say, “It’s a brick church on South Street opposite Bernstein’s hardware store.” He said proudly, “The Bayville Fire Company won five trophies in the Old Fashion Drill Tournament.” On a sports note he said he hoped the stalemate in football will be over by the end of the month.

Mary Dowling Knows Oyster Bay

Billy Minicozzi guessed the photograph in the June 16 Enterprise Pilot was a street fair in Oyster Bay, near Town Hall. He’s got the location down pat!

“It’s the car show held every Tuesday night,” said Mary Dowling of Oyster Bay. “My husband was there every night when it started in our ’55 Chevy Belair when they were charging $3. Now they charge $5. We go but don’t bring the car.”
