The Village of Mineola is in the process of acquiring multiple properties as a result of the completion of the Long Island Rail Road Crossing Elimination project. The board of trustees recently passed a resolution to start the process.
All open items involving the project have been resolved by the New York State Department of Transportation. State law, according to village attorney John Spellman, allows villages to attain properties within the project.
“That project involved eliminating at-grade crossings at Herricks Road, Roslyn Road and the reconstruction the Mineola Boulevard Bridge,” Spellman said. “We recommended that the village pass a resolution accepting these properties so that we can begin the process of officially acquiring them.”

The BU10 FC Mineola squad finished off their first season in the Long Island Junior Soccer League with a well-played 1-1 draw with Massapequa on Nov. 16. Liam Russelman’s early goal provided Mineola with their goal. Peter Murphy launched a beautiful run down the right side of the field, deftly stepping around two defenders before crossing a low pass in front of the goal. Russelman easily tapped home the pass for his goal. Andrew Pizzardi’s goalkeeping, stellar all season, kept Mineola in the game behind solid defending by Dom Ferreira, Chris Feathers, and Luke Sommese. Mineola finished the season at 3-2-4.
