The Village of East Rockaway keeps moving forward and keeps getting better. The Village recently earned top marks for our public finances in an independent audit. The New York State Comptroller’s Fiscal Stress Report also awarded our Village with a “no fiscal stress” designation, the best scoring possible, which is a key indicator of local governments’ fiscal stability.
My village board colleagues and I have rolled up our sleeves and evaluated each and every budget line to ensure homeowners are receiving the very finest municipal services at the lowest possible cost.
This positive fiscal news is a win-win for neighbors. Our Village Board is paving the way to secure our future fiscal success...and residents are seeing the results due to their proper fiscal management:
East Rockaway now has a new street sweeper to keep our public roadways clean. A refurbished recycling truck was also acquired to restart East Rockaway’s popular recycling program. Our Senior Sidewalks program helped golden aged neighbors this winter, as did our Senior Center Shopping Shuttle. Minore Park will also be upgraded and modernized for children and parents this year. Additionally, there will also be upgrades made to the Senior Center this year.
My village hall administration will also be refurbishing local infrastructure. The Baisley Avenue area project will begin in addition to a $3.2 million state-funded roadway and drainage upgrade to Lawson Avenue. We are also partnering with the East Rockaway Business & Residential Chamber of Commerce to further improve our downtown and community’s commerce.
I’m proud to have excellent partners on the Village Board. We work together with all neighbors to better our community. It’s by being responsive to residents’ needs and providing top-notch municipal services that we set our path for the future.
- Mayor Bruno Romano
