(The following is a copy of a letter recently sent to Michael Dowling, president and CEO of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish health system)
Dear President Dowling:
Thank you for the call from your office regarding my letters, expressing the deep and real concerns of the community and local physicians about North Shore-LIJ’s proposal to convert the almost century old Glen Cove Hospital to an urgent care center, eliminating 103 hospital beds, the highly ranked orthopedic surgery center and drastically downsizing other units. To close, emasculate and diminish a century old, highly respected and profitable hospital, ranked in the top 15 percent of the many great hospitals of the state of
New York, requires an extraordinarily compelling rationale.
First, as I have concluded my first term and begun my second, I’d like to thank all of you who first voted for me to become your Nassau County Legislator two years ago and now all of you who have voted to re-elect me.
It has been a pleasure and honor to serve you so far and I am grateful for the chance to continue the important work we have been doing together.
My new district, the 11th LD, incorporates Sands Point, Port Washington, Flower Hill, Roslyn, Roslyn Harbor, Glen Head, Glenwood, Sea Cliff and Glen Cove.
The opportunity to transform a long time blighted area is upon us….BUT quickly slipping away! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!! As many of my friends know, Livingston Development Corp has been looking to reshape the southern Glen Cove Avenue gateway into Glen Cove for almost a decade where we currently have dilapidated, rundown, ugly, embarrassing, buildings. Livingston has worked closely with the community and city to develop a project that is complimentary to Glen Cove, much needed in Nassau County, and so desperately desired on Long Island’s Gold Coast.
I would like to begin with complimenting and giving a big “thank you” to our Public Works personnel. They did an outstanding job in clearing the snow during each of the two snowstorms we’ve experienced this month. I would also like to thank all our first responders for always being at the ready—and thank you to Nassau County OEM, the Nassau County CERT volunteers, and the staff at the Glen Cove Senior Center, for their exemplary efforts at our senior center when it was utilized as a warming site during the storm.
To date, the city has four new cases involving violations to the housing code. Charges were filed in two cases; in one house, the attic was found to be subdivided and contained four beds and in both houses people were living in the cellar. In another case, our code enforcers determined that a storage building behind a commercial property had been subdivided into four apartments.
In times of sorrow, families rely upon the support of their family, friends and community. With the passing of our husband and father, Lieutenant Ralph “Rod” Bruschini of the Glen Cove Police Department, the city of Glen Cove graciously opened their hearts to pay tribute to one of its own.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Ali and Joe Ciampa for hosting the fourth annual Sea Cliff Soiree.
Several years ago Ali and Joe suggested a fun night of music and food to be held at the Sea Cliff Yacht Club in January, with the net proceeds benefiting the Mutual Concerns Committee.
As the founder and president of the Glen Cove Arts Council, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank and acknowledge the Long Island Academy of Fine Art (LIAFA), Hersh Gallery on Glen Street in Glen Cove, its owners, teachers and student artists who donated their time and talent in support of GCAC.
If you checked your most recent county real estate tax bill (for Jan-Dec 2014) to confirm that you were credited with your senior abatement on your county taxes, you will find no information. In fact, there was no way to verify credit for my senior abatement for 2014 except to ask the Glen Cove Assessor’s office for the amount, if any, that was credited for senior abatement on my current bill.
Have you noticed that the Nassau County Department of Assessment has not issued our Notice of Tentative Assessed Value for 2015/2016, due Jan. 2, 2014 and that any appeals of our assessments must be filed before March 1, 2014??
Our notices for 2013/2014 were dated Jan. 2, 2012 and for 2014/2015 were dated Jan. 2, 2013.
Will our assessments for 2015/2016 continue to be “frozen” at their values of Jan. 3, 2011?
The Sea Cliff - Glen Head Lions are hosting, “Put Your Game Face On” night, a benefit for local charities, featuring guest bartenders: Mayor Bruce Kennedy, Village Trustee“Fast Eddie” Lieberman, and Terry Sciubba, Thursday, Jan. 30, beginning at 7 p.m. at The Metropolitan Bistro in Sea Cliff.
