Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi has invited Glen Cove residents to participate in the next series of Neighborhood Town Hall Meetings scheduled for this fall. During these meetings, residents will have the opportunity to speak with Mayor Suozzi and the Glen Cove City Council regarding any concerns that they have pertaining to their specific area of the neighborhood. In addition to the mayor, several representatives from various city departments will be present to address concerns and answer questions.
In the past, residents have addressed several issues with the mayor and city council, including missing street signs, signage needing repair, illegal occupancy, overgrowth of foliage, excessive speeding concerns, street maintenance, abandoned homes and litter, among other complaints.
Mayor Suozzi said, “Every day individuals reach out to me and/or the city’s various departments and agencies to address specific and often times personal issues. The purpose of the town hall meetings is to provide a forum for neighbors in close proximity to each other to express concerns that are often time specific to them and their neighborhoods and not necessarily the entire community.”
Mayor Suozzi continued, “It is a great way to bring City Hall and the city’s resources to the residents to learn about what is important to them where they live. Not everyone can make it to the monthly city council meetings so the town hall meetings provide everyone involved with a very personal, up close informal format where we can really focus. I look forward to these meetings and I think the average resident appreciates them as well.”
If the scheduled date for your neighborhood is not convenient, please feel free to come to one of the other meetings. If you have any questions or are unsure which meeting you should attend, call 676-2004.
