Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray has announced that she will call upon the Hempstead Town Board to schedule a much-anticipated public zoning hearing on the proposed Lighthouse Project on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, joined by county, village, school and health officials, announced the county has purchased refrigerators to store H1N1 vaccines, expected to be released by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in October.
The county expects to receive enough vaccines for residents who fall into the “high-risk” category: pregnant women, children between the ages of six months and 24 years, individuals between the ages of 25 and 64 years with underlying health conditions, household contacts and caregivers of infants under the age of six months, health care workers and emergency medical personnel. Suozzi reminded residents to take the necessary precautions to remain healthy as schools open and the flu season kicks in.
Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi announced that the Nassau County Department of Social Services opened its second document drop-off out station at the Nassau University Medical Center’s Elmont Health Center, located at 161 Hempstead Turnpike on August 10.
“The downturn in the economy has severely impacted many residents of Nassau County,” said Suozzi. “More people are finding themselves in need of services, which have contributed to the increase in the number of visitors coming to the Health and Human Services Center located at 60 Charles Lindbergh Boulevard in Uniondale. Creating a second document drop-off out station in Elmont gives people the option of going to a nearby office in order to drop off documents which saves them time and reduces travel to Uniondale.”
Nassau County is planning on holding a candlelight ceremony to remember the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The ceremony is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. in Eisenhower Park Parking Field #6.

“I will do my utmost to fulfill your faith in me,” Kaye said immediately following the swearing in.
Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi announced plans for a major streetscape project to take place in the Elmont area. The project includes $1.9 million of additional capital funds to be allocated toward revamping Giglio Plaza and approximately one mile of Elmont Road and Dutch Broadway.
“I am pleased to announce the county will be helping to improve the quality of life for Elmont residents through this streetscape project,” said Suozzi. “The county has been working with Elmont residents in developing a visioning plan and this project is in line with the desires of the community. It will improve aesthetics and make more pedestrian-friendly some of the most commonly used roadways in Elmont.”
