I am writing in response to the article on the Manhasset Isle cell tower that was published in the March 22 issue of Port Washington News.
Once again, I read that the current board of trustees, in attorney Leventhal’s words, “…tried valiantly to find a solution to the problem they inherited.” Two of the current board members voted for the cell tower. Deputy Mayor John M. Di Leo, Jr. (as a trustee) voted that the cell tower application did not need an Environmental Quality Review, even though it is adjacent to a wetland. Both he and Trustee Rita Di Lucia, as board members, voted on a December 19, 2007 resolution approving “…the site plan application of AG Towers, Inc.”
They did not “inherit the problem,” they helped cause the problem.
