Residents on the border of Mineola and Carle Place near Bruce Terrace and Fairfield Avenue have had hopes of dry streets for decades. Three municipalities have been working out the kinks to get a flood remediation plan on track. Actual construction work is just over the horizon.
Two representatives from DeJana Industries, a sanitation company for the Village of East Williston attended the board of trustees meeting on Monday, July 9. This follows their unintentional absence from the board’s meeting last month, in which the trustees were expecting them due to complaints from residents toward their services.
DeJana Executive Vice President Bill Wynperle explained that he came down with the flu in June and while he notified his assistant to inform the board, his assistant was out sick as well. Joined by Director of Business Development for DeJana John Mangano, they heard the boards concerns, which have started to affect Mayor of East Williston David Tanner directly.
The last puzzle piece of the Mineola School District’s reconfiguration plan after years of debate, planning and implementation is in the home stretch.
The Mineola School Board of Education approved the lease of the Willis Avenue School to Herricks-based Harbor Child Care on July 5. Dissimilar to the Cross Street School lease to Solomon Schechter Day School, a K-through 12 institution, Willis Avenue will be leased to a day care center, which caters to children from 12 weeks to 12 years of age.
Mineola Mayor Scott Straus, president of the Habitat for Humanity of Nassau County Kay McKiernan and crowds composed of all ages were there to enjoy the night.
Project manager Kevin Willis said investigators for the agency would begin drilling holes east of Herricks Road into the month of July. He revealed that the plume was first located near Gold’s Gym on Fulton Avenue in Garden City Park.
Since 2004, North Hempstead Town Attorney Richard Finkel has managed the town’s legal affairs, astutely representing the municipality in a variety of capacities from negotiating collective bargaining agreements to successfully suing Nassau County to repay more than $1 million in community college enrollment charge-backs.
Come July, however, Finkel, the town’s lead counsel and a fixture at every town board meeting, will be practicing in the private sector when he joins the Garden City offices of Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC as Senior Counsel. His practice will focus on labor and employment, municipal law, and land use and zoning.
As the Bob Dylan song goes, “The times, they are a-changin’.”
The meeting would have taken place last week. The Mineola Village Board set Aug. 8 as the date of hearing the changes of MP’s plan. The building is located on the north side of Old Country Road, directly across from the Nassau Legislature and Executive Building on West Street.
Instead of putting a known opponent on the Democratic ticket, the Nassau County Democratic Party nabbed Daniel Ross. Ross, an automobile sales manager who recently ran for commissioner of the Manhasset-Lakeville Water and Fire District, will oppose Senator Jack Martins in the November election. Ross lost the race for commissioner last year to Andrew DeMartin.
The time is here again. The John S. DaVanzo Community Pool reopened for the summer on Saturday, June 16. Many residents, trustees and pool staff members, as well as John DaVanzo and Mayor Scott Strauss, gathered to celebrate.
Upon officially opening the door for the upcoming summer season, Mayor Strauss asked to commemorate a dedicated member of the Mineola community and the founder of Mineola Volunteer Ambulance Core, Joseph DiGiorgio, with a moment of silence. He passed away on June 13 at 90 years young.
