Senator Gillibrand Comes to Great Neck

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Friday, 26 March 2010 00:00

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand came to Great Neck last Friday afternoon, March 19. The senator held a press conference in the Village of Great Neck, at the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District’s waste water treatment facility on East Shore Road. A large gathering of public officials joined Senator Gillibrand in support of the underlying issue, jobs.

Senator Gillibrand stated that “Every billion dollars in spending for water infrastructure creates more than 26,000 jobs.” Both Senator Gillibrand and U.S. Representative Gary Ackerman called for a federal commitment to invest in water infrastructure projects. The planned combination and upgrade of the Village of Great Neck’s sewer plant and that of the sewer district is expected to cost $60 million and, according to the senator, create 480 jobs.

 

Preliminary Library Budget: Up 3.1 Percent

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 19 March 2010 00:00

In the coming weeks, the trustees of the Great Neck Library will, in public sessions, grapple with honing the budget for fiscal year 2011. In the past four years, total expenditures were kept flat due to the fact that the library had operating surpluses that offset the increases. That is not the case for 2011. Revenues are down by 9 percent and expenses are up.

The Station Branch expansion would result in operational cost increases, which it appears that the board may officially approve soon, and were included in the budget. A Parkville expansion was also included in the budget. With these expansions, the operating budget would go up by 11.9 percent. These costs do not include the costs of renovation, which would come from reserves set aside for the branches.

The preliminary working budget for the 2010-2011 school year is $189,547,240, a 2.16 percent increase over the current 2009-2010 budget.

Crunching the Numbers for Station Branch

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 05 March 2010 00:00

At a special meeting of the library board on Wednesday of last week, the board voted unanimously to engage the architectural firm of Zakary Hagemann Associates of Oyster Bay to design the build-out for an enlarged Station Branch for a fee not to exceed $21,000. After much discussion, they decided to take this course before voting to approve a new lease for the proposed larger space on the second floor of the Gardens of Great Neck shopping center.

On the day before, the Branch committee had interviewed a number of Long Island architectural firms and had recommended Zakary Hagemann Associates to the entire board. Board president Andrew Greene said that although all the firms interviewed were impressive, it was the consensus of the committee that this particular firm’s portfolio demonstrated a level of excellence the committee was seeking.

Two Mayors Challenged

(Editor’s Note: As with all village elections, immediately following the last date to file a petition to run for office, the Great Neck Record contacts each village’s clerk/treasurer, asking for the names of the candidates. And, as well, we ask that the village contact each candidate, asking for a biography, a photograph, and a statement as to why the candidate is running for office. Some villages, and some candidates, do comply. In the weeks to come, we will publish all such election materials.)
