Village Weighs Verizon Bid
The Village of Roslyn Estates board of trustees will be weighing a bid by Verizon to construct an antenna tower/structure at 1044 Northern Boulevard. Verizon has filed for a building permit.

Such permits will require public hearings, ones that will probably take place at future BOT meetings.
