The Village Board and I are so proud of the community and how East Rockaway continues to flourish with an abundance of new businesses. Our Senior Center continues to grow, doors are open on Monday, Thursday afternoon and Friday. In addition, the Village Board instituted a Senior Bus Shuttle, which operates once a week. If you are interested please contact Village Hall for scheduling a pick up.A recent newsletter was sent from the entire Village Board highlighting some of our new programs, including the ongoing Community Safety Program. Our local streets have become shortcuts to avoid traffic lights, stop signs and other vehicular controls Please slow down while driving in your community "because life is too short to speed through!"
I am also happy to announce our "Do Not Knock" program that is currently in the works. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and address. You will receive a reply email, which informs residents that this program is in the early stages of development, and if you have anyone soliciting at your home, please contact Village Hall at 516-887-6300 to report the name of the company. Solicitors are now required to register with the Village and obtain a permit. They will receive a "Do Not Knock" list, as well as their permit.
Please never hesitate to contact me at Village Hall if you ever need anything.
