The Herricks Board took a final vote on the budget to be presented to the public on May 17 at the Herricks Community Center Gym, 999 Herricks Road, New Hyde Park from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

After that the board voted on the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) budget of $18,947,178 which amounts to an increase of 2.8 percent.
In the absence of New Hyde Park Village Mayor Daniel Petruccio, Deputy Mayor Robert Lofaro took over the meeting and after the proposed budget was passed said he would address the questions asked at the last meeting after the trustee reports.
One of the village residents, who had asked many of the questions at the last meeting, said he was surprised that the answers to his questions had not been provided in writing as he requested. Lofaro said that the information was not obtained in time to mail the answers to the resident and would therefore answer his questions later in the meeting.
