Budget Spending Holds the Line
Sticking to the conservative spending habits they have promised the voters in recent elections, the Village of Roslyn board of trustees unveiled their proposed 2002-2003 budget, one that calls for a slight decrease in overall spending for the new fiscal year, which will begin in June. After a public hearing on the budget, the document was adopted by the BOT at their April 9 meeting.
Durkin Swears in Elected Officials
Even though they were unopposed, a significant number of voters turned out to re-elect Marshal Bernstein and Craig Westergard as village trustees, along with Judge Nathan Stern as the village justice, who began his 12th term of office. Judge Stern began his village service in April of 1958. The re-election of the village board members signals a wide acceptance of Mayor Durkin's change in policies regarding open government that is sensitive to the needs of the Roslyn community. "It is most welcome to have village groups and organizations working together," said Mayor Durkin. The cooperative Christmas light program, the expansion of parking for employees of village businesses and tree plantings along Old Northern Boulevard were cited as examples of cooperative community efforts for the village.
