Question:

There are some major development projects in the City of Glen Cove that are either under way or under review by the city government. The city administration has also been creating new ordinances and departments. What is the process for major decisions within the city - whether building projects or the creation of new ordinances and city charter amendments? What are the key boards or groups within the city who help make the decisions and how are they populated in order to represent voters’ interests? Is the overall process a good one / have the results been positive?

Written by Erica Palladino Friday, 16 September 2011 00:00
On Sunday, Sept. 11, Americans around the nation gathered together to commemorate all those who risked and lost their lives 10 years ago. In Sea Cliff, a beautiful ceremony was held outside the Sea Cliff Junior Library. There, many citizens, firemen, policemen, teachers, and students from the area stood with glowing candles.

The service began with a greeting from Phil Como who then turned to Father Bob Romeo for an opening prayer. Heads bowed as he told the group to not only pray for those who perished, and those who tried to save them, but for all the daughters and sons who no longer have fathers and mothers because of the horrific event.

Come On Irene - Hurricane Weakens But Leaves a Wake

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Friday, 02 September 2011 00:00

Area residents felt the effects of Hurricane Irene over the past weekend, which made landfall in New York as a Tropical Storm around 9 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28. According to local weather reports, sustained winds were around 50 mph with gusts up to 75 mph, which knocked down many trees throughout Glenwood Landing, Glen Head, Sea Cliff and Glen Cove and some power lines as well. In addition, local waters experienced a storm surge that flooded low-lying parts of the area, including Tappen Beach. Parts of Sea Cliff and Glen Cove’s small islands were evacuated in anticipation of this. Damage from flooding and downed trees left many without power well into the week.

LIPA further explained that these crews would be working around the clock to restore power in all areas of the island, and that many of the off-island crews were stationed on Long Island prior to the storm. Many of these trucks were stationed at Christopher Morley Park.

Glen Cove Plans 9/11 Ten-year Anniversary Memorial

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00
The ten-year anniversary of 9/11’s terrorist attacks on downtown Manhattan will be marked across the country with somber memorials and solemn reflection. It is an understatement to say the events of that morning shocked and horrified this entire nation. As the day proceeded, grim realities also brought out the best in many Americans who had no choice but to make every effort to pitch in wherever possible in the aftermath of such a brutal, unforeseen travesty.

The Glen Cove area has a unique relationship to that day, being connected to the city by a ferry. The community came together here, with many going far and beyond to help wherever help could be offered. Because of this, Glen Cove is organizing a memorial event on the evening of Sept. 11, 2011 at Morgan Park.
