Trustee Jennifer Noone updated the board on the status of Inness Place.  The Village signed the contract with contractor, United Paving Corp., on June 28, 2017.  James Antonelli, the engineer hired to oversee the project, is finalizing the equipment requirements under the contract and construction should begin shortly. Trustee Noone informed residents that the contractor will provide notice of a start date for construction to all Inness residents and that the Village will post these dates on the website for all Village residents. 

WALDMANN BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT
Mayor Frank DeMento explained that the Village in cooperation with and financial assistance by the Munsey Park Woman’s Club has considered the renovation and re-landscaping of Waldmann Park.  The project has been planned for about two years. The Mayor recognized the hard work and perseverance of Dr. Audrey Garvin of the Munsey Park Woman's Club.  Dr. Audrey Garvin spoke of the project and informed the residents in attendance that the MPWC raised $33,230 towards the project; 124 residents donated funds to purchase 4 benches, 17 trees, 107 engraved bricks, 3,000 square feet of pavers, and several engraved rocks.  The Mayor thanked Senator Elaine Phillips for the $50,000 grant that she awarded to the Village for the project.  This grant now saves the Village the $50,000 budgeted for the park.  The savings will remain in the general fund and be reallocated in the next budget cycle. 
Tony DiProperzio had reviewed the plan and determined that the plan is ADA compliant and is DEC compliant.  The plans of the project are posted on the Village website.  Additionally, the Mayor informed the board that the beautification project was put out to bid and was awarded to Grounds Guys who will complete the project for $47,200. 

Motion by Trustee Noone to approve the plans of the Waldmann beautification project and award the bid of the project to Ground Guys, seconded by Trustee Ceriello and approved by all.
 
VILLAGE WALKWAY
Anthony DiProperzio presented the plans for the Village walkway explaining the ADA requirements and lighting specifications.  Additionally, the Mayor discussed the walkway plans that will connect Congregational Church parking lot and the entrance to the auditorium at the Munsey Park Elementary School by crossing a portion of Village property. The Mayor informed those in attendance that the walkway will allow safe access to the school for the elementary students whose parents must now park on Village streets or walk along Northern Boulevard to accompany their children to and from the school at drop off and pick up.  The walkway will also provide a safe alternative to residents who park on Village streets to attend special events at the school.  The Mayor opened the meeting up for discussion and comments for almost an hour.  Residents from Sargent Place and Allston Place provided comments and concerns regarding increased vehicle traffic along their blocks and parents using Sargent Place as a drop off point.  Trustee Ceriello ensured these residents that the Village would make every accommodation to prevent parents using their blocks as an extension of the school’s driveway by not allowing the circle to become a pick up and drop off location. 
 
The Mayor thanked Senator Elaine Philips for awarding the Village a $50,000 grant and to County Legislator Richard Nicolello who awarded a $70,000 grant to the School, for a total of $120,000, for the walkway project. The project is currently out to bid.  Dr. Jean Kendall, (Principal of Munsey Park Elementary School), Rosemary Johnson (Deputy Superintendent of Manhasset Public Schools), Armand Markarian (District Director of School Facilities), Noreen Labenne (SCA - Munsey Park President), Lisa Grygiel (SCA - Executive President), and Peggy Sica (MPWC Co-Presidents) were in attendance to advocate the necessity for the walkway.  A rendering of the approved project is available on the Village website.

INTRODUCTION OF LOCAL LAW #1 -2017 – “OVERRIDE OF TAX LEVY LIMIT”

The Village Attorney presented to the Board the draft of Local law #1 –2017 “A local law to override the tax levy limit established in General Municipal Law 3-c.”  The Board discussed the proposed local law and it was moved by Trustee Patrick Hance to hold a public hearing for the purpose of adopting such local law on January 11, 2017 at 7:30pm, seconded by Trustee Jennifer Noone and unanimously carried.

Motion made by Trustee Patrick Hance that the adoption of the proposed local law under SEQRA will not result in any significant adverse environmental impact and that the Board make a negative declaration under SEQRA, was seconded by Trustee Jennifer Noone, and unanimously carried. A copy is available at the Village Hall.

The Clerk is directed to provide notice of this public hearing as required, and to forward copies of the proposed local law and SEQRA determination to the Nassau County Planning Commission as required by §239-m of the General Municipal Law of the State of New York.


LICENSE PLATE READERS IN THE VILLAGE

After recent burglaries in the Village, Mayor Sean Haggerty asked two license plate reader companies to come to the meeting tonight to explain how the license readers work and any other information that would enlighten everyone. A+ Technology and NDI Recognition Systems separately explained how the recognition systems continuously scan and read license plates under various lighting and weather conditions.  Resident Malinda Gillan was opposed to the cameras, as she felt it was an invasion of privacy and did not want anyone to know her whereabouts.  She also believed that it was a waste of money considering only six houses have been broken into.  Mayor Sean Haggerty explained that this was just a preliminary meeting to find out how the scanners operate.  If at such time, the Village Board decides to go ahead with the cameras, a formal bid process would take place.
 
Motion to go into executive session made by Mayor Sean Haggerty, seconded by Trustee John Lippmann and confirmed by all.
