The Village Attorney presented to the Board the Local law #1 –2017 “A local law to override the tax levy limit established in General Municipal Law 3-c.”  The Mayor opened the public hearing on the adoption of this local law, and all who wished to be heard, were heard. After review, the hearing was closed on a motion made by Mayor Sean Haggerty, seconded by Trustee John Lippmann, and unanimously carried. Mayor Sean Haggerty made the motion to adopt Local Law #1 – 2017, which was seconded by Trustee Jennifer Noone and confirmed. (A copy of the local law will be annexed to these minutes.)





Mayor Sean Haggerty introduced Deputy Inspector Gregory Abruzzo, Commanding Office Inspector Dan Flanagan and Det. Lt. Ken Stragaro from the Nassau County 3rd precinct.  Det. Lt. Stragaro is the individual in charge of the IT Department.  He spoke about how the license readers would work and that the base of the reader would be held at the Nassau County Police’s main headquarters.  He has dealt with LSAG as a vendor. The LPR’s have been placed in the Village of Woodsburgh.

Officer Inspector Flanagan informed the Village of the crime rates in Munsey Park.  For the past three years, Munsey Park has had around a 1% burglary rate. Trustee Noone suggested that the Board create a committee on security meet to gather the information to present to the Board.  Resident Abe Bronchtein offered to be on the committee.  Prior to leaving the Mayor asked the Commanding Officer Inspector Flanagan to introduce the POP (problem oriented policing) officers in the back of the room.  Mayor Haggerty thanked all of the police officers for coming and thank them for all their hard work.




Architect Jim Gilhooly appeared along with Mr. & Mrs. Macconanaigh to appeal the decision of the Building Advisory Committee (BAC).  The BAC had approved plans for a new roof line; however, according to Mr. Gilhooly, the original house plans were incorrect which caused his drawings to be inaccurate.  Mr. Gilhooly did an amendment to the original plans, but never went back to the BAC.  Both the contract and Mr. Gilhooly were issued tickets to appear in court in February, 2017.  Since the Village Building Inspector was not in attendance, the Board decided to adjourn the discussion and will meet with the Building Inspector, and the Chairwoman of the BAC, and do a site review.



Motion to go into executive session made by Mayor Sean Haggerty, seconded by Trustee John Lippmann and confirmed by all.
