Village Continues Post-Storm Recovery

Written by Alan Krawitz Friday, 30 November 2012 00:00

Tree removal, storm expenses top agenda

While life is slowly returning to normal on Long Island and in the village following superstorm Sandy, stories continue to surface on how deeply residents were affected by the hurricane as well as last week’s nor’easter storm.

At last Tuesday’s village board meeting, resident Andrew Faglio related a story of a 30-foot tree which fell across the street from him, on South Park Place, as it was knocked down during the nor’easter storm.

Renaissance Downtown chosen as master developer

The owner who decided to move the New York Islanders off Long Island once its lease expires in June 2015 may play a role in filling the potential void left by the teams’ departure. County Executive Edward P. Mangano, developer Bruce Ratner, Isles owner Charles Wang and Don Monti of Renaissance Downtown think they have a plan in place to solve the developmental conundrum that is the Hub, which includes Nassau Coliseum.

The group announced a strategic “Reuse Plan” on Tuesday, Nov. 20 that reportedly will transform the Coliseum within the first half of 2013. Others have tried and failed where Ratner is venturing and the 77-acre site in Uniondale could become barren in three years once Wang departs for Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Local Soccer Star nominated by Long Island Soccer Football League

“Shocked. Totally shocked.” Those were the words New Hyde Park resident Willie Dempsey used to describe his feelings upon being elected to the Eastern New York State Soccer Association (ENYSSA) Hall of Fame. The native of Ireland has accumulated a bevy of championships during his time with the powerhouse New York Irish Rovers of the amateur soccer league.

In reality, Dempsey should not have been shocked that he earned the prestigious honor of being elected into the Hall of Fame considering his incredible accomplishments. He has virtually become the face of the Irish Rover franchise as he has made an impact not only as a player, but also an administrator and currently the club president and league’s third vice-president. During his 30-year tenure he has brought home 10 New York State championships as well as 20 Long Island League championships, 24 Long Island Cup champions and six Sportsmanship Awards. Needless to say, he has made a significant impact on the club.

Trio of out-of-state utility workers come to rescue of two elderly residents

When 29-year-old Brian Maher allegedly stole a pocketbook from an unnamed 80-year-old female at a New Hyde Park bus stop in the vicinity of Jericho Turnpike and Ingram Lane on Tuesday, Nov. 13, it was without the knowledge that three Good Samaritans would help out the victim. According to Inspector Kenneth Lack, “the 82-year-old husband attempted to stop the defendant by beating him off with an umbrella, fell to the ground and received lacerations and contusions to his head and face and injuries to his left knee and hand.”
 

LIPA’s Post-Sandy Performance Ripped

Written by Alan Krawitz Friday, 16 November 2012 00:00

Many residents still without power nearly two weeks since storm

New Hyde Park Mayor Dan Petruccio echoed the sentiments of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo last week as he opened Thursday’s village board meeting by blasting the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), for its performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Speaking before a group of about 10 residents, the day after a nor’easter storm dropped several inches of snow on Long Island, Petruccio reported there were still numerous village residents without power and he called LIPA’s post-Sandy restoration efforts “unfathomable,” saying that the utility had dropped the ball at “all levels,” and that they “couldn’t have handled the situation any worse than they did.”

 

Local Officials Ask Fed Gov’t To Help LIPA

Power authority is blasted for delays in power restoration and lack of communication

“LIPA has failed and has failed miserably.”

That is what Congressman Peter King said at a press conference in which elected officials called on the federal government to send resources to get the job done in turning power back on for all Long Island residents. On Friday, Nov. 8, 11 days after super storm Sandy devastated Long Island, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) reported that more than 81,000 Nassau County customers remained without power and more than 162,000 throughout Nassau and Suffolk. That was enough for King, County Executive Ed Mangano, Congressman Steve Israel, New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray and Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, to hold a press conference and ask the federal government to send the resources to do the job which LIPA has not been able to.

 

Weathering The Storm

Mayor Dan Petruccio declares state of emergency; village board and Petruccio also institute multiphase process towards recovery

Much like many other areas of Long Island, the Village of New Hyde Park had more than its share of work to do in wrestling with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. One of the after-effects of New Hyde Park’s power outage was village hall being devoid of electricity and phones, which caused operations to be moved to a disaster recovery facility at 498 Stewart Ave. as of Monday, Nov. 5. The severity of the storm resulted in Mayor Dan Petruccio declaring a state of emergency that was effective immediately and was to continue until further notice. In accordance with New York State Executive Law, Article 2-B, the mayor exercised the authority given to him under this statute that charges him with preserving public safety and rendering all required and available assistance vital to 
the security, well-being and health of the residents of the village.He in turn directed all departments of the Incorporated Village of New Hyde Park to take whatever steps necessary to protect life and property, public infrastructure and other such emergency assistance as deemed necessary.
 

Tanners Pond Environmental Center Members Appreciation Party

Friday, 09 November 2012 00:00

The Tanners Pond Environmental Center, (also known as the Garden City Bird Sanctuary), sponsored a Member Appreciation Party on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the home of Robert & Suzie Alvey. The theme was “Green is Good!”

Over 60 guests were treated to Long Island wines, beer, hors d’oeuvres and desserts as Robert Alvey presented the 2012 Garden City Bird Sanctuary Environmental Stewardship Award to Mike Lutz of Lutz Landscaping for his long term support of the community nature and wildlife area. Mike and his wife Linda raised their family in Garden City South and he is the owner of Lutz Landscaping, a full service landscape design and maintenance company serving Garden City, New Hyde Park and surrounding areas for over 25 years.  Mike has “environmental stewardship” in his genes, and his two sons have earned their Boy Scout Eagle rank through environmental projects. He has also called the sanctuary several times to offer special shrubs or trees he’s come across that he knows would be good additions to the site...and has even donated his truck to help deliver. Previous GCBS Environmental Stewardship Awards have been presented to New York State Senator Kemp Hannon, Garden City accountant Andrew L. Hult, Chaminade High School, and the Harder family of Harder Tree Services.

Frustration Mounts At Latest TVASNAC Meeting

Written by Dave Gil de Rubio Tuesday, 06 November 2012 09:38

Residents rail at overuse of Runway 22L

On Monday, October 22, the Town-Village Aircraft Safety & Noise Abatement Committee (TVASNAC) held its most recent meeting at East Williston’s village hall. With the primary topic for that evening’s meeting revolving around the excessive use Runway 22L in and out of JFK Airport, the FAA was represented by New York Terminal District Manager Jeffrey Clarke, public affairs specialist Jim Peter, Claude Vieira from JFK operations control and Robert Jaffe, an aviation safety inspector for the Eastern Region who also happens to be a licensed pilot. Although FAA regional administrator Carmine Gallo was slated to appear, he wound up being a no-show. Given the fact that there have been prior instances of representatives from different agencies failing to show up despite making commitments to the contrary, it wasn’t surprising that the concerned citizens who filled up this meeting started grumbling about yet another federal official blowing off another meeting.
