In connection with the comprehensive road plan delivered in January to the Village, Sidney Bowne developed a five phase improvement plan that covered 2.1 miles of Village roads at approximate cost of $3,610,000. This cost includes construction and engineering fees, as well as Belgian block curbing for each phase. The Board will use this information to come up with the road improvement strategy for the Village. Trustee Noone indicated that Inness will be repaved in the Spring and that the Village will continue to make minor improvements through cut outs and patching, as well as budgeting more money towards roads in the future.
Walter Turturro, 69 Eakins, wrote a letter to the Board requesting that the Village speed limit go from 30 mph to 25 mph. Commuters cut through Munsey Park on Manhasset Woods Road and then take Eakins to the railroad station. Trustee Lippmann explained that this speed limit is according to the Vehicle and Traffic Law and that 5 mph will not slow anyone down. He also stated that he has been back and forth with the police department to have more patrol during commuting times. The Board will continue to monitor this situation.
The garbage bid will go out to the contractors who have showed interest to bid in the past. Trustee Noone requested that the bid specifies three (3) year or five (5) year terms, so the Village can save on this cost. The legal notice will be placed in the Manhasset Times.
