Dear Residents,

 

We are happy to report that Meadow Carting Corp. has informed us that the strike which impacted service to our homes has been resolved.   Meadow expects to resume regular service tomorrow.   Those homes that normally receive service on Saturday we see their service resume then.  If anything changes, we will let you know.

 

We appreciate your patience this week. 

 

Mayor and Board of Trustees

Incorporated Village of Munsey Park      March 2017
Village Update

The Village would like to take this opportunity to update our residents with some important happenings and future projects. Please take a moment and read details about the Impending Storm, Road Work, Elections, Village Financials, and some additional initiatives. If any resident has additional questions, please contact Barbara or Maureen at Village Hall.

IMPENDING STORM:
With the impeding storm is due to hit our area beginning early Tuesday morning, the Village would like to pass along some helpful reminders and numbers so as a community we can get through the storm as smoothly as possible.
At this time forecasts are calling for ranges of 12” to 24” of snow, with the heaviest accumulations starting after midnight throughout the day Tuesday. These forecasts will certainly change throughout the day so please keep yourself updated and avoid being out in the worst of the storm.
We ask residents adhere to the following tips to stay safe during the storm and cleanup
• Use the balance of today to get any additional essentials for your home, including batteries, needed food, salt for walkways, and gas for snow blowers prior to the storms arrival.
• The Village has always taken great pride in having our streets clear prior to the surrounding Villages and Town. With a storm of this magnitude please keep all cars off the streets, avoid driving, or being out during the storm.
• Please check in with elderly neighbors and offer any assistance needed.
• Those residents with sidewalks we ask you to do your best to clear them of snow as quickly as possible.
• In the case of power outages, please call PSEG directly at 800-490-0075 or visit their website https://www.psegliny.com/page.cfm/CustomerService/StormCenter for assistance and additional information.
• In case of Emergency please call 911

FINANCIAL UPDATE:
We are approximately three quarters of the way through our fiscal year, which ends on May 31.  Our budget for this year had revenues of $1.75mm, of which property taxes are $1.25mm.  The remainder of the revenue is primarily from building permits, court proceeds and shares from the state and utilities.  We expect to exceed budget considerably as we have taken in higher building permit revenue and we have received more state contributions for roads.  Our expenses should be on-budget in aggregate, resulting in a surplus which will go into our capital fund for future use.

We are in process of preparing a budget for the fiscal year 2018, which begins on June 1 of this year.  There will be a budget hearing as part of the Trustees Meeting on April 12 at Village Hall.  This year we would like to allocate more money to road repairs, and we face the renewal of our contract with Meadow Carting, which will likely come with a substantial increase in cost.  We will do our best to manage our other expenses tightly and keep the overall tax increase as low as possible.


VILLAGE ROADS:
The Village maintenance crew continues with its routine pothole repairs throughout the Village. The crew does their best to clean out any loose debris, filling the pothole with cold asphalt patch to avoid any damage to vehicles or pedestrians traveling throughout the Village.  Although the maintenance crew does their best to try to address all road damage created over the winter, if there is damage on your street that needs attention please contact Village Hall.

The Village has engaged engineer Jim Antonelli, P.C. to assist in the repaving of Inness Place.  The engineer will prepare the design, bid and construction phases of the project.  Construction on Inness should begin sometime in May. 

An overall Village road assessment was just completed by engineering firm Sidney Bowne.  The assessment includes a map which color codes all of the streets and gutters in the Village with measurements and ratings.  For those that are interested, the map and evaluation is available for view at Village Hall.  In addition, Sidney Bowne prepared a road construction estimate which covers 2.1 miles of Village road and gutter construction at an estimated cost of $3.6 million.  The estimate includes construction and engineering fees broken out into 5 phases.  The Village will use this data to decide on how it will move forward with future road construction and whether or not the Village will take out another bond for road repair.

WALDMANN MEMORIAL PARK:
The Munsey Park Woman's club has completed its fund raising campaign for a revitalization of the park. In addition to raising funds, MPWC has received donations for bricks, benches and trees. The Village has also petitioned state and local governments for grants. We should know how much grant money we will receive in April. Thereafter, a final revitalization plan will be completed so that work on the park can commence this summer.

VILLAGE ELECTIONS:
The Village will hold our annual elections on Tuesday, March 21st at Village Hall. Polls will be open from noon to 9pm. This year residents will be voting on three positions, Mayor and two Trustee positions. Running this year is Frank Demento for Mayor, Patrick Hance and Lawrence Ceriello for the two Trustee positions.
From the Mayor: I would like to take this time to thank the Residents for their support over the last four years. It’s been a tremendous honor to serve the Village and I wish the new Board the best of luck while they continue to uphold the standards our Village has come to expect. In addition, I wanted to give the residents a status of a few initiatives that are still outstanding.

LICENSE PLATE READER STATUS:
To date, the Board has held two meetings to further educate the Board and Village residents on the specifics of LPR technology and how the Nassau County Police utilize the data. The next steps, if the future Board feels inclined, would be to go out to bid to better understand the cost of implementing the technology and then hold a public hearing and vote. Currently, there are no plans to move this initiative further.

MLWD WATER TOWER LITIGATION:
The Village has been advised that our Appeal will be argued March 16, 2017, in Appellate Division 2nd Department, 45 Monroe Place, and Brooklyn. The Village will advise residents of the decision once it is made available.

VILLAGE WALKWAY STATUS:
The Village continues to work with administrators at the Manhasset School District and the leadership at the Congregational Church to devise a walkway solution to keep children from having to walk down Northern Boulevard when utilizing parking at the Congregational Church. The Board will advise residents once a solution has been approved by our building advisory committee.

NEXT MEETING: Our next meeting will be Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 7:30pm.

Dear Resident:

We respectfully remind you that the residents with sidewalks must clear snow and ice
from the sidewalk adjacent to their home. It is critical that all the walks are cleared. 
One uncleaned section effectively eliminates access to the sidewalk for the entire block.
The safety of our residents and children depend on everyone doing their part.

If you are unable to accomplish the snow and ice removal yourself, please make arrangements
for someone else to do so or contact the local schools or churches for volunteers.
The responsibility is yours and the Village must enforce this code requirement.

Section 157-7 of the Village Code provides that snow or ice
must be removed “within eight hours after snow ceases to fall”.  The time between 9:00pm and 7:00am is not including in the eight hour period.  If your sidewalk is not cleared within 24 hours, after the snowstorm ceases, you will receive a summons.

The Fire Department has also asked us to remind you to keep fire hydrants outside your homes clear.

It is also important that you clear a path to your garbage cans so that the carter
can safely perform their duties. They will not pick up garbage if a path has not been cleared.

Winter has just started and your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Very truly yours,

 

Barbara C. Miller
Clerk/Treasurer
