Town Attorney Steps Down
Town Attorney is leaving the public sector to join Garden City-based Bond, Schoeneck & King. There he will serve as senior counsel, focusing on labor and employment, municipal law, and land use and zoning.
During his eight-year tenure with the town, Finkel originated a case that prevented Nassau County from imposing on taxpayers $1.2 million in costs attributable to student enrollment at the Fashion Institute of Technology, much of it attributable to students enrolled in that school’s baccalaureate and masters degree programs. Though town and city residents across the county benefitted from the decision, North Hempstead was the first and only municipality to take on the issue.
Finkel also negotiated three collective bargaining agreements with the town’s unionized work force, mediated disputes between labor and management, assisted in the pioneering re-implementation of flow control in the Town.
