A Message from the Mayor
As lifelong resident of the Village of Massapequa Park, I am honored to serve as your Mayor. My administration and the Village Board will continue to make our community an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
Let us face it; 2020 was certainly a year filled with challenges from the global pandemic that continues to impact our daily lives in 2021.
Here in Massapequa Park my administration and this Village Board have worked tirelessly to do everything we can to help our residents and local businesses face these challenges and overcome them.
To help our struggling local businesses here in Massapequa Park, we have streamlined our permitting process to help our local restaurants and shops take advantage of outdoor dining. We remind you to visit our downtown businesses, shop local and keep our community vibrant while continuing to adhere to health recommendations.
While the challenges of the global pandemic impact our daily lives, the Village Board and I have continued the work that we set out to do. We have doubled our efforts to repave roads, made significant improvements at Brady Park to our Basketball courts and Baseball fields.
Just as we have promised, we are doing more with less and implementing positive reforms in Village Hall. This year, the 2021-2022 Budget froze village property taxes and in December of 2020 the Village Board, and I voted to eliminate free health care for elected and appointed officials.
In addition to these reforms at Village Hall, the Village Board and I worked together to help homeowners by advancing a Building Permit Amnesty program. This will help homeowners legalize work done at their property and prevent them from having to remit financial penalties that are 3x higher than the permit fee. Most recently, we entered an Inter-Municipal Agreement with the Town of Oyster Bay to alleviate a 30-year flooding problem in the village.
As spring begins and we continue to turn the corner on the global pandemic, I am hopeful more than ever about the future of Massapequa Park.
There are always exciting events and celebrations happening in the Village! For more information, please see our press releases below.
