Mayor’s Report: March 15, 2013

Spring Cleanup

All residents are asked to assist in the task of cleaning up our community to keep Garden City beautiful. This can be done by picking up paper, cans, bottles and other debris that may have been deposited on the streets and other public areas near your homes. A few minutes of cooperative effort by all of us can make our village look 100 percent better.

Residents are also reminded that rubbish should not be placed on the curb before the evening prior to the collection day. It detracts from the aesthetics of the village and poor treatment of one’s neighbors to ignore the village law that specifies that rubbish should not be deposited at curbside before the evening prior to collection.

Pet owners are asked to please be considerate of those who are working to keep our community beautiful and those who are using park areas by cleaning up after your dog and by disposing of the waste at curbside on Wednesdays.

The police department is issuing summonses for these violations, which are answerable in the village justice court and can result in a fine for each offense.

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

John A. DeMaro, Trustee – 2-year term

Richard V. Silver Trustee – 2-year term

Since the incorporation of the village in 1919, members of the board of trustees in Garden City have been elected by a non-partisan vote of residents in accordance with the policies of the Community Agreement.

Absentee Ballot Applications


Absentee ballot applications to be used in conjunction with the general village election on March 19 are available at the Village Hall, 351 Stewart Ave. Applications must be received by the village clerk by March 12 if the ballot is to be mailed. For personal application, the deadline is March 18.

The next regularly scheduled board of trustees meeting will be held on Thursday, March 21 at 8 p.m. I encourage all residents to attend board of trustees meetings so as to be thoroughly informed of village issues from a first-hand perspective.
