After months of talks, the Town of North Hempstead has negotiated an agreement to acquire 7.3 acres of open and recreational space in the Roslyn Country Club neighborhood for $2 million that will be funded through the town’s Environmental Legacy Fund.
The new park, which includes a swimming pool on Country Club grounds, would be open to all town residents, a town spokesman said. Authorization for this purchase will be on the town board calendar on the Tuesday, June 19 meeting, one to be held at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall, 220 Plandome Rd.
Dr. Elaine Kanas has been appointed as superintendent of The East Williston School District, effective Aug. 1.
The announcement was made at the June 6 meeting.
Board of education members said that the application process collected nearly 40 applications. The board interviewed more than 10 applicants, bringing back two of the applicants for final round interviews. The final round interview process consisted of representatives from various constituency groups, including parents, community members, administration and staff.

Roslyn High School 2012 seniors are still smiling from pleasant memories of their senior party, held last Thursday, May 31, in their school gymnasium.
The theme, “There’s An App for That,” remained a secret both from students and the community until the night of the party. Following tradition, a large committee of dedicated parents spent the entire school year creating an atmosphere of decorations to interpret the theme, and transformed the school gym into a Broadway-type setting.
Roslyn High School seniors Benjamin Kornick and Kevin Sherwin both won Grand Awards at this year’s INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair held recently in Pittsburgh, PA.
More than 1,500 students from about 70 countries, states, and territories spent the week in Pittsburgh vying for hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes. Only the top 25 percent of competitors received Grand Awards.
As with numerous towns and villages across Long Island, last summer’s Hurricane Irene had its own devastating effect on the Village of Roslyn Harbor.
The village, according to officials, suffered so much damage, including power outages, that many residents have purchased generators for their homes. Generators can make noise and so the board of trustees, at a May 14 meeting, adopted a new local law to deal with that situation and to articulate “supplementary requirements for certain uses [of generations] in residential districts.”
Roslyn School District officials are pleased with the passage of its 2012-13 budget. The $99,445,327 proposed budget, which represented a 1.85 percent increase over last year’s budget, was approved by a 672-267 margin.
“It has been the firm conviction of the board of education and administration for some time that educational excellence and fairness to taxpayers are thoroughly compatible goals,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dan Brenner following the vote. “For several years, the district has consistently presented budgets to the community with increases under two percent, even while we forged ahead with any number of ground-breaking instructional initiatives. Our commitment to both fiscal responsibility and educational progress was affirmed in today’s vote.
The party will take place on Thursday, May 31, beginning at 7 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. However, as is also custom, the party’s layout will be open to the public, from 3 to 5 p.m. on that same day. Those who attend the public viewing are asked to keep it a secret from the seniors.
The following are the results of the May 15 Roslyn School District and Bryant Library budget votes.
School budget: 672, yes; 267, no.
Library budget: 685, yes; 248, no.
The three incumbents on the board of education---Dani Kline, Adam Haber and David Seinfield---faced no opposition and were re-elected to another three-year term each.
A petition is currently circulating throughout East Hills, one that expresses concern about residential development and the loss of what it calls “numerous” healthy trees.
East Hills resident Richard Brummel is circulating the petition. Brummel told The Roslyn News that the representation of like-minded residents at a recent public hearing on the village’s tree laws inspired him to start up the petition. He added that up to four-dozen signatures were secured after several hours canvassing over a recent weekend.
