Presiding Officer Nicolello Approves Community Improvement Projects

Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello and members of the Nassau County Legislature approved an updated Capital Plan, which includes badly needed improvements to numerous county roads, parks and facilities that serve Nassau’s residents. This includes two local projects: The beatification of “Lions Triangle” in Mineola at Roslyn Road and Old Country Road, and funding for badly needed repairs at Christopher Morley Park.

 

The 2018 Capital Plan includes funding for a new police academy at Nassau Community College. This will replace the current police academy located in an old Massapequa school. Nassau’s law enforcement professionals have extraordinary responsibilities, including leading the fight against the opioid epidemic and gang violence, and working with federal authorities in the war against terror. The new academy will ensure that police recruits and recruits from other law enforcement agencies are trained in a state-of-the-art facility. The Legislature also approved a study to identify options for an opioid treatment clinic.

 

“Government works best when it is working for the people,” said Presiding Officer Nicolello. “Recognizing that much of Nassau’s infrastructure is in disrepair, my colleagues and I have been fighting for these projects for years but have been frustrated by political infighting and needless delays. It is time to get Nassau moving again!”

Nicolello Secures $300,000 To Ensure Residents Christopher Morley Park Are Not Left In The Dark

Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello secured funding for necessary upgrades to the lighting in Christopher Morley Park. These environmentally friendly upgrades will both increase public safety in the park and energy efficiency.

 

“Energy efficient LED lighting will replace the existing outdated system.” said Presiding Officer Nicolello. “In addition to reducing operating cost, the new lighting will provide better illumination thus benefitting the users of the park by improving safety.”

 

There are many structural issues with the existing lighting system, rendering some areas of the park left completely in the dark, presenting a hazard for users. As part of the renovations, new light poles fitted with energy efficient LED fixtures will be installed.
