After a few months of constant concern from New Hyde Park residents, Inspector Sean McCarthy, commanding officer of the Nassau County Third Precinct, was the guest speaker at last week’s village board meeting to address the concerns of residents.
Before opening the floor to the public, Inspector McCarthy provided a brief report regarding crime in the area and provided an update on the precinct. First, McCarthy reported that the Third and Sixth precincts have been combined and are now both under his command. While some residents expressed concern over this, McCarthy went on to explain that the combining of the precincts allows for a continuity of leadership and access to more P.O.P. (Problem Oriented Police) cops.
Following a presentation by Inspector Sean McCarthy of the Third Precinct, the New Hyde Park Village Board conducted their regular monthly meeting.
For reference, the New Hyde Park Village Board only meets once a month during the summer months. These meetings take place on the third Tuesday of each month at 8 p.m. in the New Hyde Park Village Hall. The next meeting will take place on August 21st.
These crucial directives could be transmitted from further a field if the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) goes through with plans to relocate air traffic control facilities in Garden City and Ronkonkoma to a new site in upstate New York.

DeJana Executive Vice President Bill Wynperle explained that he came down with the flu in June and while he notified his assistant to inform the board, his assistant was out sick as well.

At the annual reorganization meeting of the Herricks School Board Christine Turner was re-elected as president and Jim Gounaris was elected as vice-president.

The New Hyde Park/Garden City Park Union Free School District held their monthly board of education meeting on July 2. The primary focus of this meeting was reorganization, with the appointment and reappointment of many members of the district and the board itself.
The board of education saw no change in its staff as each of the primary members was reappointed at the meeting.
With their wives and families in the audience, both trustees had a chance to thank not only their families for the many hours they spent away from them, while serving on the school board, but everyone in the various administrations including various superintendents and colleagues on the board.
Herricks High School held its graduation ceremonies on the football field at the school last Thursday evening. Every year the graduating class votes where to hold the ceremony and so far each class has voted, unanimously to hold the ceremony on the home football field which is a nice tradition.
This year, in spite of the extreme heat, the students were as enthusiastic as ever and deeply inspired by guest speaker Rajeev Goyal, a 1997 graduate of Herricks High.
The 304 graduates marched proudly into the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex led by their beloved principal Michael DeMartino, who after 39 years of serving the district, is set to retire.
DeMartino said, “Today is a bittersweet day. I have loved every minute of it, but it’s time.” He and his wife plan to travel and visit their grandchildren in various sections of the country, which they have never been able to do.
