FROM THE MAYOR’S OFFICE

SHOP AND DINE IN GARDEN CITY
By Donald Brudie

From time to time I have utilized this column to remind residents that we are fortunate to have a very viable business community in our Village which offers great products, attentive customer
service and enjoyable dining experiences.
With St. Valentine’s Day coming next week, I encourage you to
make a reservation or simply drop in at one of our restaurants with
your special someone to enjoy a special evening just minutes away
from your home.
HOUSE NUMBERS
All residents are urged to post their house numbers on the front
of their homes. A properly displayed house number can save precious time when our emergency services are responding to your
home.
WINTER WATER FACTS AND TIPS
I would like to take this opportunity to again remind you of
some winter water facts and tips:
• Outside water faucets have a valve inside which can be shut
off during winter months. Purchasing an insulated hose faucet
cover will also help protect the valve from freezing.
• Frozen pipes can result in damage to your home, and repairs
can be costly. If you have experienced freeze-up problems in the
past, it is suggested that a faucet be allowed to flow with a steady
drip which will help prevent the recurrence of a freeze-up.
• To prevent pipes from freezing, you can insulate them and
keep your thermostat set at no less than 60 degrees.
BUDGET WORK SESSIONS
I would like to advise you that the Board of Trustees will be conducting work sessions to review the proposed 2013/14 Operating/ Capital Budgets on:

BOARD OF TRUSTEES’ MEETING SCHEDULE
The next regularly scheduled Board of Trustees’ meeting will be
on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. We also remind those
residents who are grieving their taxes that this is also Grievance
Night which begins at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 9:30 p.m. I encourage
all residents to attend Board of Trustees meetings so as to be thoroughly informed of Village issues from a first-hand perspective.
