Mayor’s Report: January 4, 2013

Best Wishes For A Happy And Healthy New Year

On behalf of myself and the board of trustees, I would like to extend to all village residents a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

Year-End Reminders

The second half of village taxes that were due and payable on Dec. 1, are subject to penalty if payment was not made within a 30-day grace period. This year payments received after Monday, Dec. 31, are subject to penalty. Please return the “second half” bill stub with your payment made payable to the Incorporated Village of Garden City.

Veterans Real Property Tax Exemption. The deadline for applications for Veterans tax exemptions was Dec. 31. Applications cannot be accepted after the close of business on that date.

Residents are reminded that there was no regular garbage or recycling pickup on New Year’s Day. Also, there was no rubbish pick up on Wednesday, Jan. 2. The holiday week collection is as follows:

If your recycling day is on a Tuesday, your recycling pick up has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 8.

News

The Garden City Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the 35th annual Fall Festival Street Fair set for Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Seventh Street. The chamber thanks the Garden City Hotel which will serve as the primary event sponsor.

JGS entertainment will return for the 16th year as master ceremonies providing music and vocals. There will be plenty of activities for the kids. Included will be the return of the two trackless trains carrying children 12 years of age and younger up and down Seventh Street sponsored by Coach Realtors and Garden City Teachers Association. There will be the traditional inflatable bouncy house sponsored by SMPL Technologies and the ever-popular money cube sponsored by Calogero’s and Leo’s. The Garden City Parks and Recreation Department will have giveaways and temporary tattoos.


Sports

Reminder

With the fall sports season upon us, the department of recreation and parks would like to remind all residents that pets are not allowed in any neighborhood parks, Community Park, or St. Paul’s fields. Non compliance with this rule will result in the issuance of appearance tickets.

Register For The Online Registration Option

Garden City’s Department of Recreation and Parks will offer the option of online registration with credit card payment beginning with its winter programs in early December.

In order for a family to use the online registration option, the family will first need to visit the recreation and parks office at 108 Rockaway Ave. to verify residency and their family information and receive their password.  A list of instructions as to how to use the website will be included.

Stretching tips for the high school athlete

Prior to the start of high school running season, Garden City’s Physical Therapy Options (PTO) had an opportunity to provide a presentation to members of Sacred Heart Academy’s cross country team. Team members gathered at Garden City’s New York Running Company to learn strategies and tips for a successful fall season.

PTO staff members Dr. Meghan Goetz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and PTO Aide Mike Murphy discussed the importance of stretching to prevent injury and provided strategies and tips for success for the high school runner.
