If you missed Tuesday night's Town of North Hempstead board meeting, here are some of the highlights:
- Richard Finkel will no longer be the Town's attorney. Following the Town board meeting Tuesday, Supervisor Jon Kaiman thanked Finkel for his service saying that, "Since he first came in he's done an extraordinary job... We're so much better off that he was here." Councilman Angelo Ferrara called Finkel a "class act" and wished him "nothing but the best." Councilwoman Viviana Russell said she would really miss Finkel and Councilwoman Lee Seeman noted that she "really enjoyed working with you." Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio said that she can "always count on getting an answer from you," which she appreciated.
- The Town voted to adopt a law that would get rid of the requirement to submit a property survey to the Town's building department for interior alterations or renovations that don't change the footprint of the building. Kaiman explained that this is a "reconciliation" or "amnesty" for people whose buildings are not in compliance to help to get them up to code.
- A public hearing regarding putting full stops signs at Dyckman Avenue and Nassau Boulevard as well as Dyckman Avenue and Seventh Avenue in Garden City Park was set for July 10.
- A hearing about putting a fuel tank underground at 88 Nassau Boulevard in Garden City Park was set for July 10.
- The Roslyn Little League made a gift of $50,000 a year to be paid for three years related to improvements made to North Hempstead Beach Park's baseball fields.
- The Town will be preparing and submitting a grant proposal for bulletproof vests for harbor patrol and public safety officers.
