A road resurfacing project may be coming to the Village of Roslyn Estates.
Last month, the village’s board of trustees approved a bond resolution for road resurfacing and reconstruction at residential areas of the village.
The estimated maximum cost of the project is $900,000. “The object…for which the bonds are authorized is the reconstruction and resurfacing of various roads in the village, including ancillary work,” the resolution stated.
According to village officials, the period of usefulness of the bond is 15 years.
Before the resolution is finalized, certain waiting periods must pass. One waiting period, in which village residents could bring a petition to vote on the resolution, has already passed. The village government must go through at least one more waiting period before the resolution is allowed to become law and the resurfacing and reconstruction work can begin.
A complete copy of the resolution is available to the public during business hours at the Roslyn Estates Village Hall, located at 25 The Tulips.
In other local news, the Town of North Hempstead, at the June 2 meeting, has approved the application of Sunoco Company, Inc. for the installation of two underground storage tanks for premises located at 993 Willis Ave., Albertson.
In order to get approval, Sunoco sought a waiver pursuant to section 29A-5.A (1) of the town code.
The application includes the replacement of three 8,000 gallon and 6,000 gallon underground gasoline storage tanks with two 16,000 gallon tanks, each exceeding the 10,000 gallon limit. Previously, the town board had debated the issue at both its April 28 and May 19 meetings.
