Mr. Morici, Village Attorney, explained to the Board that Extenet applied for a special use permit to install a cell node on Manhasset Woods Road, north of Park Avenue. Extenet then sued the Village to toll the statute of limitations on completing the application. Subsequently, Extenet withdrew their application and voluntarily discontinued the lawsuit against the Village.
BUDGET- FIRST QUARTER REPORT
Trustee D’Angelo explained that currently the Village is getting close to concluding our audit for the year ending May 31, 2018. In addition, we are on budget for the first quarter (June 1, 2018 – August 31, 2018).
Deputy Mayor Noone updated residents on the Hawthorne /Eakins Road Project which was completed over the summer. The Village’s engineer, James Antonelli, will be assessing the remaining “red” roads as depicted on the road rating map and from there will decide the next project. The Village is anticipating tackling another road project in the fall and is working on a three to five year road plan with the Village engineer.
NO PARKING SIGNS
The Village has installed signs at all three entrances that prohibit commuter parking. These signs will allow the Village to enforce commuter parking laws while alleviating placement of signs on homeowner’s property.
NO SOLICITATION LIST
Deputy Mayor Noone explained that various organizations have been soliciting Village residents asking for their support or contributing to a certain cause. In response, the Village is creating a Do Not Solicit List. Residents can call Village Hall and be placed on this list which will prohibit solicitors from approaching your home.
PWM OEM MEETING
Trustee Sabino will be attending The PWM OEM meeting in October. Local Villages on the Northern peninsula along with the Town of North Hempstead have joined together to form the Port Washington Manhasset Office of Emergency Management to better plan for and coordinate their response to an emergency. Trustee Sabino will report back to the Board on developments to assure that our Village is prepared if an emergency should arise.
