News

Plainview resident Cila Schlanger was eager to attend a two-hour property tax workshop at the Farmingdale Public Library last week — the problem is, so were many other people.

“I was taken aback once I came here because there was such a line,” she said. “I thought it would be a two-hour workshop, but individuals had to wait to be helped on a first come, first serve basis.”

Residents are trying to save a buck whenever and wherever they can, especially when it comes to property taxes. To try and lend a helping hand, elected officials recently hosted a property tax exemption workshop at the library, drawing residents from across Nassau County.

Plainview school officials are looking for public input for the next round of capital improvements.

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District announced the search for volunteers to serve on its Facilities Upgrade and Improvement Advisory Committee at a special Board of Education meeting held on July 16. The committee will advise and assist the District in preparing a capital improvement bond issue that will be proposed to the Plainview-Old Bethpage community for a vote in December.
