Plainview Water District Seeks Donations for Holiday Toy Drive
The holiday season is upon us, and the Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners, Kevin Langberg, Joel Kessler and Edward Shulroff have joined forces with John Theissen Children's Foundation (formerly known as Toys for Sick Children), a nonprofit organization that provides toys to sick and less fortunate children in local hospital pediatric wards and shelters. For the past six years, the water district has worked in conjunction with John Theissen Children's Foundation to help brighten the holiday season for less fortunate children. Residents interested in contributing should bring new unwrapped toys to the Plainview Water District Administration Building, 10 Manetto Hill Road, by 4 p.m., Friday, Dec. 15.
Comptroller Weitzman Discusses County Finances, Star Rebates With POB Chamber
Property taxes are "the number-one issue facing Nassau County residents," according to County Comptroller Howard Weitzman, who came to Summerset Gardens Assisted Living on Nov. 15 to speak to the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce. In his talk, Comptroller Weitzman discussed the state of the county's finances, the causes of Long Island's high property taxes, and his recent report on the STAR school tax rebates, which showed that Nassau taxpayers received hundreds of dollars less than Westchester residents in similar school districts. In Plainview, the STAR rebate was $272.22, but in Hastings on Hudson, a comparable Westchester school district, homeowners received $563.41.
