A Message from the Mayor
As we begin 2022, I am filled with excitement for the year ahead. March is here and we are all looking forward to warmer weather.
This winter, while it was bitterly cold, we have been lucky to only be faced with a few snowstorms. At Village Hall, we enhanced and upgraded our plowing operation, with the use of modern technology and new equipment to improve efficiency for our snowplow operators, who did a phenomenal job this winter!
This past year, we embarked on a much more aggressive capital improvement program with our contractors to pave more roads than ever before. While we have not yet completed all the roads planned due to a sudden cold snap, our contractors will be out there as soon as the warmer weather comes. In addition, the Village Board and I are looking at adding more improvements to Brady Park and further increasing our efforts to improve our roads.
This year will mark a return to normal for our wonderful Village. In the last two years we have overcome so much adversity with the battling of the global pandemic and finding new ways to overcome the challenges we’ve faced as a community. Our business district continues to be at the heart of our Village, and the Village Board and I will continue to work with our merchants to help them thrive in every way possible.
While we start to plan our spring and summer activities and events in the Village, we are looking forward to bringing back many of our celebrations and events starting with our Village Elections on March 15th. In April we will see both Little Leagues off for their parades for the start of their seasons and close out April with our Earth Day Cleanup on April 30th at Brady Park.
In May we will bring back to the traditional Memorial Day Parade and its route this year, starting in Massapequa and heading through the Village across Clark and down Park Blvd. The Village Board and I are looking forward to seeing everyone come out on Memorial Day to support our veterans and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our Country.
This summer, the Village Board and I hope to build and expand upon the success of our first Park After Dark event working with all our merchants to create successful events for all our residents to enjoy.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us here at Village Hall.
