On Sunday, Oct. 20, I was in attendance for the celebration of the 40th Anniversary Reception of the Garden City Public Library building. It was a pleasure to be there to celebrate this milestone with the members of the library board as well as the residents of the Village of Garden City.
Texting While Driving
According to AAA statistics, texting while driving has even surpassed drinking as the number one perceived threat to personal safety. Please educate yourselves and your teen drivers that texting while driving can kill. Ask your teen drivers, is a text more important than a life?
Please Continue To Shop And Dine In Garden City
The residents of Garden City are very fortunate to have viable retail businesses on Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road where there is a good variety of quality merchandise and family dining experiences available to be enjoyed. Please support these businesses and enjoy the products, variety and outstanding customer service. Keep in mind that these merchants save you from traveling outside the Village for your needs. Consider the harsh reality if we did not have these businesses here to service our needs. I look forward to seeing everyone in town.
Automatic Water Sprinklers
As a reminder, Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 result in two consecutive odd days. All residents with automatic sprinklers should remember to reset their clocks at this time to comply with the village lawn watering regulations. Lawn watering is permitted between the hours of 5 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 10 p.m.
Trustees’ Meeting Schedule
The next regularly scheduled board of trustees’ meetings for the month of November are Nov. 7 and Nov. 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 firsthand perspective.
