Residents are reminded that it is their responsibility to maintain the shrubs and trees on their property to assure that branches do not overhang and obstruct the Incorporated Village by doing your part to keep Garden City a pedestrian friendly community.
It is wonderful to see so many Garden City residents as well as visitors to our village enjoying alfresco dining on New Hyde Park Road, Franklin Avenue and Seventh Street. This year there are 31 businesses, which have permits. There is no doubt that alfresco dining is an overwhelming success. I encourage residents to come early and combine shopping with dining outside at their favorite place. The outdoor dining will continue through the month of November.
The next board of trustees meetings will be held on Thursday, Oct. 7; and Thursday, Oct. 21. The meetings will be held in the boardroom at Village Hall and will begin at 8 p.m.
I encourage residents to periodically utilize the village’s website for information regarding the Village’s operations, as well as items of seasonal and special interest. The address is www.garden cityny.net. For your convenience, listed on the village’s home page under the heading of the Fire Department is a sub-heading “Home Safety Tips,” which includes information regarding propane barbecue grills and housekeeping for fire prevention, etc.
