Church Celebrates Centennial In FP

Written by Stephen Levine Friday, 17 August 2012 00:00

Local church shares long, storied history with town

By the year 1912, many Lutherans had begun to move to the village of Floral Park. Among them were Mrs. Homeyer, Mrs. Metzendorf and a missionary named Pastor Halter. These three individuals went around the village and other towns looking to recruit Lutherans and by March 10 of that same year, Pastor Halter led a service and Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church of Floral Park was born.

Now 100 years later, the same church that developed during the presidency of Woodrow Wilson is continuing to go strong in 2012 as it recently celebrated its centennial.

 

Mangano Touts Assessment Reforms

Written by Joe Scotchie Friday, 17 August 2012 00:00

Claims millions have been saved for Nassau taxpayers

Denouncing what he called a “dysfunctional” assessment system, County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that for the first time in county history, there will be zero liability in the assessment system, an achievement that the county executive also claimed would save taxpayers $30 million, including $4.3 million a year in the labor assessment process.

Flanked by several county workers, Mangano praised their diligence, while mapping out a future assessment process for the county. Noting that the majority of municipalities in New York State perform assessments on a five-year period, Mangano said that while the county is currently on a four-year period, he hopes to up that one year to the five year total that he believes represents a prudent assessment system. In addition to a five-year plan, Mangano laid out two other goals. The first is to “stop the debt from growing and then [to] reverse it.” The second, he added, was to “find a better, intelligent system to handle assessments,” including computer software.
