Mayor’s Report: March 8, 2013

Emergency Management Radio Tested Weekly

Each week, Garden City along with all villages within Nassau County, performs a radio-test with the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management Office (NCOEM) to ensure that their assigned radio is working properly. These radios operate at 800 MHz frequency and have been in operation for the past several years as a result of funding from former State Senator Michael Balboni. In the event of a major disaster where normal radio communications were disrupted each Village would have the ability to communicate with each other directly as well as with the NCOEM.

Village Election - Tuesday, March 19

The annual village election will be held on Tuesday, March 19, from noon until 9 p.m. at Village Hall, 351 Stewart Ave. Village residents will be voting for the following candidates:

John J. Watras Mayor – 2-year term
