A Town of North Hempstead resolution authorizing a $90,000 payment to reimburse the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the cost of drilling and analysis at Harbor View in Port Washington, which ordinarily would be a routine matter, sparked criticism from the GOP. In an e-mail widely distributed to the press and to many individuals, Lee Tu, GOP candidate for Town Supervisor and Francis X. Moroney, Esq., the North Hempstead Republican Leader, raised objection to the resolution.
