Responding to complaints from local residents, the Village of Massapequa Park Board of Trustees has approved a motion to refer to the Planning Commission a study for Stop signs at two intersections in the village.
The first request is for a Stop sign for north- and southbound traffic on Broadway at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue.
The second request is for a Stop sign for north- and southbound traffic at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Monroe Street.
Village officials said that local residents collected signatures on petitions to have the Stop sign request made. The Planning Commission, officials said, usually takes about a month in studying the proposal before reporting back to the BOT.
In other news, the BOT has authorized the establishment of a standard work day for elected and appointed officials to determine days worked reportable to the New York State and Local Employee’s Retirement System in accordance with new guidelines established in Section 315.4 of the New York State Codes, Rules & Regulations.
The BOT also authorized the village administrator to sign Property Owner Registration and Authorization forms to allow the Town of Oyster Bay to enter village property for the Geesepeace Program and accept a no fee contract for the continuation of the program.
The village administrator has also been authorized by the BOT to hire Philip Ivey of Massapequa as a MEO, Grade 11, effective from June 29.
