The Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners Joel Kessler, Andrew Bader and Edward Shulroff recently visited Plant No. 1 at Manetto Hill Road to review the progress of the district’s pavement restoration project and to check heightened security measures. The construction at Plant No. 1 is part of an extended series of capital improvements designed to enhance efficiency and productivity within the district’s facilities.
“We’re very pleased at the progress we continue to make at the Plainview Water District throughout the past 12 months,” Kessler said. There are a variety of ongoing projects, he added, and it is important that “my fellow commissioners and I thoroughly oversee each capital improvement” to ensure continued high-quality service.
Thursday, 23 May 2013 00:00After six years of serving on the Plainview-Old Bethpage Board of Education, former trustee, Angel Cepeda, decided not to seek re-election this past May 21, and recently took time to reflect on his tenure on the school board.
“It has been an honor to serve the Plainview-Old Bethpage community — while some may not have always agreed with my positions on various issues, I trust nonetheless that I was considered honest and principled,” Cepeda said.
