Glen Cove City Council Update

The Glen Cove City Council met on March 12 for a meeting.
The meeting began with local announcements:
The Church of the Holy Resurrection in Brookville will host a Hellenic Heritage Day at Village Square on March 23 from 1 to 2 p.m. to celebrate Greek Independence Day.
Glen Cove Youth Sports will host its third annual Glen Cove Youth Recreation Dinner on April 4 at 6 p.m. at the Crescent Beach Club. The $125 per person fee includes dinner and an open bar. Raffles will be sold. RSVP to [email protected].
The Glen Cove City Council voted in favor of several resolutions that would help fund improvements to the city.
For the 50th year, the City of Glen Cove and the Community Development Agency are entering into an agreement with the County of Nassau for a Community Development Block Grant from the federal government and Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, which provides annual grants to provide decent housing and a suitable living environment, as well as expanded economic opportunities.
Also on the agenda was a call for an increase in Aid and Incentives for Municipalities (AIM).
“For the past 15 state budgets, the governor has failed to include an increase in the AIM funding, which is the only form of unrestricted aid that cities, villages and towns received,” said City of Glen Cove Mayor Pam Panzenbeck. “This neglect by the state has forced municipalities to cut staff, reduce services and raise taxes. Governor Hochul’s proposed 2024-2025 executive budget maintains AIM funding at current-year levels.”
The city will also be entering into an agreement, not to exceed $18,857.29, with D&B Engineers and Architects for the preparation of an engineering report required to support a grant application for PFAS removal at the Nancy Court Well Station. PFAS, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are used to make fluoropolymer coatings and products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease, and water. They are a concern because they do not break down in the environment, can move through soils and contaminate drinking water sources and build up in fish and wildlife.
The city will be entering into an agreement with The Landtek Group Inc. to repair potholes at the Brewster and Pulaski Street garages in the amount of approximately $73,713.75.
The Landtek Group Inc. will also be constructing concrete clay bins at City Stadium for $16,500.
The city will be entering into an agreement with Metro Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, PLLC to perform physical and occupational therapy for the Glen Cove Senior Center through the end of the year for a cost of $75,000. This is funded by the Nassau County Department of Human Service Office of the Aging’s American Rescue Plan Act funds.
The city will accept a $25,000 award from the New York State Office of the Aging to support Senior Center services and programs.
The city approved events in the city, including the Glen Cove Baseball & Softball Association’s parade on April 6; the Deep Roots Farmers Market at Village Square on June 8; the Deep Roots Farmers Market at the Garvies Point Parking Lot and Gazebo on June 1, 15 and Oct. 26 and the Gold Coast Cruisers’ Waterfront Car Show at Morgan Memorial Park on June 23, with a rain date of Sept. 15.
