Written by Joe Scotchie Friday, 13 November 2009 00:00The agendas of the public meetings of the Village of Massapequa Park Board of Trustees remain modest in scope and size. Still, village business goes on.
At the Oct. 26 meeting, the BOT approved the establishment of an Identity Theft Prevention Program for the village.
It also approved the transfer of funds of $4,332 from the Unallocated Insurance fund of the village budget to the Other General Support segment of the budget for the payment of the MTA Payroll Tax.
Earlier, at its Oct. 19 meeting, the BOT approved a motion to refer to the Planning Commission the study of the installation of turbines and solar panels on all properties in the village.
The village is not considering putting up solar panels; it just wants to be prepared to regulate them in the event that ever happens.
At the Oct. 19 meeting, the BOT also authorized Mayor James Altadonna to execute the CSEA Employee Benefit Fund contracts for the Equinox Dental Plan and Platinum 12 Vision Plan.
In addition, the BOT approved a motion to advertise for a public hearing for the removal of the stop sign on Michigan at Third Avenue and for the installation of a three-way stop sign on Third Avenue at the intersection of Fitzmaurice Street. The public hearing will be held on Monday, Nov. 9 at 8:00 p.m. at the village hall, located at 151 Front St.
At meetings held in September, the BOT approved sidewalk and curb programs for establishments at 70 Fitzmaurice St. and 140 Linden St., both of which will be performed by Lazer Industries.
It also approved the construction of an easement to the owner of property at 4843-4891 Merrick Rd. for the purpose of installing a drainage system.
Finally, at the Sept. 21 meeting, the BOT approved a motion to refer the application of Verizon Wireless to erect a cell tower at 5020 Sunrise Highway to the Nassau County Planning Commission.
