The Nassau County Department of Health announced last week that mosquitoes from seven different locations in Nassau County tested positive for West Nile virus.
The first of the samples of Culex pipiens-restuans mosquitoes was collected from a Bethpage location on June 30, testing positive for the virus.
The other samples, reported by the Health Department a few days after the initial report, were collected on July 6 in Valley Stream, July 7 in the Massapequa Preserve (from two pools) Merrick and Wantagh, and July 9 in Westbury. The test results from all the pools of mosquitoes were confirmed by the State Department of Health.
These are the first findings of WNV so far this year.
The New Hyde Park/Garden City School Board voted, at its last meeting, to reappoint Ernest Gentile as president and Joseph Bongiorno as vice president of the school board.
Prior to this appointment school board trustees Gentile, Bongiorno and Joan Romagnoli were all re-sworn into office.
At beginning of the last New Hyde Park/Garden City Park School Board meeting, president Ernest Gentile made the following statement, “During the meeting we would normally have a report from trustee Annette Giarratani, but she has been at North Shore Hospital for some time since she suffered an aneurism. She has had several surgeries, and seems to be doing a little better, but I implore you to keep her in your thoughts. I know this is a busy time, but just keep her in your thoughts.”
At the last meeting of the North Hempstead Town Board, John Fehling, of New Hyde Park, was on hand to represent the more than 800 residents who signed a petition, presented to the town, to prevent the town from putting Oasis Camp members at Clinton G. Martin Pool, on the corner of New Hyde Park Road and Marcus Avenue, New Hyde Park.
Clinton G. Martin Pool is owned by the town, but imposes a special district tax charged to the residents of New Hyde Park to support the pool. This year, because an early payment fee was removed, residents had to pay an increase in the fee. Residents must, therefore, pay that special tax and they are then guaranteed, with their guests, exclusive use of the pool.
