If you drive on Covert Avenue you have seen big changes in the work being done on our fire damaged building. The pre-construction phase is underway as facades, walls, ceilings and other heavily damaged debris are removed to make room for construction. The next set of construction drawings have already been approved, and building superintendent Renee Marcus and other village officials remain in contact with business owners who express interest in information about the reconstruction process. The architect of the owner of 43-61 Covert made himself available to answer merchants’ questions and provide them with assistance. There is no update on 41 Covert, the northernmost property, at this time. The Building service ensures the follow-up.
In the meantime, Jericho Turnpike, Covert Avenue and Tulip Avenue are gearing up for a busy summer, so please visit our local businesses, take advantage of the exciting outdoor dining opportunities, and SHOP AND DINE LOCAL often during your summer at Floral Park. and Stewart Manoir.

Our fire department responded to a fully involved garage fire last Friday. The fire resulted in the complete destruction of the garage. A nearby garage also suffered structural damage and other houses were damaged. As always, our fire department did an amazing job and, more importantly, there were no physical injuries.
The Department is participating in a 2-day LIRR Train Safety / Rescue course this month. They will train at the Fire Academy on a real LIRR train. Chief Saville wanted me to inform our residents that there has been a slight increase in rescue calls due to the hot weather. People should remember to stay hydrated and, if necessary, stay indoors.
Calls for the month of May-124 calls in total; Bound Rescue-97 Rest of the Department-35

Once all the brackets are installed, further measurements will be taken and about a month later the actual installation of the wall pieces will be in place.
On the weekends of June 26-27 and July 10-11, the main line will be closed for other work in New Hyde Park and Mineola.
Finally, tomorrow at 11am, we will attend the official opening of the three elevators of the LIRR Station at Parc Floral. We are extremely happy that the elevators are finally open for all LIRR users, especially our residents.

I am happy to report that Floral Blvd. the road reconstruction project is now complete. Last week, the road was completely repaved and traffic lanes painted all over the boulevard. The road has a new smooth surface with new drainage. Many of our residents have already taken the opportunity to not only drive on the road, but also jog and bike there. It went well!
I want to thank the engineers at LKB and the contractors at Road Work Ahead for the project, for working with the village throughout the project and doing a good job.
I would like to acknowledge the excellent work our Public Works Superintendents Kevin Ginnane and Assistant Superintendent Joseph O’Grady have done to manage this project. By not only ensuring that all work has been done to standards, but most importantly by making all notifications to our residents, schools, police and fire department, everyone is informed and safe as they go. the progress of the project. Thanks Kevin and Joe!
Police Department – Administrator Frank Chiara
Our Rescue and Police Department responded to a service call last Sunday at the Floral Park Motor Inn on Jericho Turnpike. Tragically, this call to a callous woman turned out to be that of a deceased woman, a possible victim of homicide. Our police department immediately notified and coordinated with the Nassau County Police Department to initiate an investigation.
Due to the rapid and intensive investigation; Nassau County Police have taken a suspect into custody. The investigation found that the victim and the suspect, who did not both reside in Floral Park, knew each other and may have been involved in a domestic violence incident.
We are saddened to learn of this unfortunate death and send our condolences to the family of the victim.
Thanks to our police department and a special thanks to the Nassau County PD for investigating this matter so effectively and resolving it quickly.
I wish all the Fathers in our community a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Enjoy it, take the time to relax and hopefully be pampered by family members.
To all of our residents, have a safe and enjoyable summer. ENJOY!!!

As you can see, there is a lot going on here at Floral Park. It’s summer, so get out there and enjoy all the amenities the village has to offer.
The following is a quick update on the Belmont redevelopment project. The Bambrick Village Administrator, the rest of the board, and I continued to work with, as recently as today, Senator Kaplan’s office and the Empire State Development Corp. (ESD), regarding parking and encroachment on the impasses of Hazel Place, and Mayfair and Crocus avenues. I also visit residents daily to provide updates and work on what will hopefully lead to solutions that are acceptable to everyone.
As Administrator Chiara said, Happy Father’s Day everyone – please enjoy it. Thank you.
