Mayor’s Letter to the Residents September 11, 2020

September 11, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

It is always so sad writing today’s date: September 11th. It brings back the tragedy of that fateful day and the despicable mass murders of thousands of innocent Americans. For me, it conjures the painful memory of watching the disaster in New York unfold before my eyes and listening to the events in Washington and Pennsylvania. The horrific deeds ended so many beautiful lives and changed the course of countless others. It propelled us into a war that continues to put American military members at risk every day.

Dear Neighbors,

Tropical storm Isaias has caused a great deal of damage throughout the Village.  I drove every passable street that had signs of damage and encountered many downed trees and broken branches.  Many people told me that they lost power.  Everyone I spoke with seemed in good spirits, despite the damage.  I am not aware of any injuries or fatalities.

Dear Neighbors,

This weekend, the Long Island Railroad and their contractor, 3TC achieved an important and amazing milestone. They pushed the 8 million pound New Hyde Park Road undergrade crossing and railroad bridge into place and reopened the mainline for railroad traffic. This was an amazing engineering feat; only the third time the technique has been used in the Americas (Covert Avenue was the first). The process involves pushing the tremendous structure across the ground, stopping every 20 inches to make sure it is going straight and not too high or not too low. If it’s too low, they simply add some dirt in front of it. If it’s too low, they dig dirt out of the way. The challenge is that they can only move it one direction. Luckily, they got it right.

Dear Neighbors,

The continuing growth of the CONVID-19 virus and humanity’s response to it has caused the Village to make certain changes in the services we provide. These changes are for the protection of our employees and to help in the overall fight against the virus by limiting human contact while enabling your Village government to continue to deliver the essential municipal services you need.

Dear Neighbors,

By now we are all acutely aware of the fast spreading coronavirus. We know that the instances of infections will increase before they begin to subside. Federal, State, County and Town officials who provide health services for us have been extremely diligent in publicly sharing information about the spread of the disease. Our partners at Northwell Health have also been in touch and are extremely supportive. I don’t have any additional information that has not already been widely reported in the media.
I will share these reminders provided to me by Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, Judi Bosworth which bears repeating:
