Village Pool Applications Mailed
Last week, the Garden City Recreation Department mailed their Splash newsletter which includes the 2014 pool application. If you have not received the newsletter/application, please call the recreation office at 516-465-4075.
Shop And Dine In Garden City And Enjoy The Experience
I encourage residents to make a conscious effort to choose Garden City as the place to shop and dine. It would be extremely helpful to our business community if you could make one purchase daily in the Village stores. Customer service, selection and quality are outstanding. While shopping or dining let the merchant know that you appreciate them and all that they offer. I look forward to seeing everyone in town.
Board Of Trustees Meetings
The next meetings of the board of trustees will be on Thursday, May 1 and Thursday, May 15 at 8 p.m. The meetings are held in the boardroom at village hall. I encourage all residents to attend board of trustees meetings so as to be thoroughly informed of village issues from a first-hand perspective.
School Budget Meetings
The school district 2014-15 budget meetings are scheduled as follows (all budget meeting are held at 8:15 p.m. at Garden City High School):
May 13: Budget hearing
May 20, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.: Budget vote in high school gymnasium
Due to the difficult winter weather, four days of school were canceled for Garden City Public Schools. The calendar was adjusted to make up these days. April 21 and 22 were full days of schools as will May 23. Additionally, Friday, June 27 will be used as a staff development day for faculty and paraprofessionals.
