The Mayor’s Update


Garden City Mayor, Mary Carter Flanagan

Garden City Mayor, Mary Carter Flanagan to speak on Garden City’s quality of life issues and current initiatives next Tuesday, January 23

As summer begins, I look forward to seeing many of you at the Memorial Day Parade and ceremony on Monday where we come together to honor those who have given their lives serving our country.

Thank you to all the residents who attended the Brandstetter Carroll Kick Off Meeting last week, and have been following the progress in the newspaper and online.

I am committed to supporting the efforts of Brandstetter Carroll, the firm hired with a unanimous vote of the Board of Trustees, as they develop a recreation master plan that includes St Paul’s. I support the gathering of comprehensive data that is representative of all residents. This will allow the Village, along with Brandstetter Carroll, to leverage data on the needs, wants and desires specific to the St. Paul’s Main Building to develop a master plan that includes preserving part or all of the St. Paul’s Main Building. I am committed to being transparent in sharing all information gathered from Brandstetter Carroll regarding St. Paul’s, and I am excited to work with the entire Board on this important undertaking that has never been done before.

It is important to the Village that our residents are familiar with the efforts that are taken to protect our water resources and to continually improve the water treatment process. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality water to your home.

The poppy is the flower of remembrance in tribute to the heroes of the armed forces who died in the service of our country. May 24th is annual poppy day. All donations are allocated for needy veterans and their families.

Much of the service is conducted through the VA hospital facility in Northport. Donations may be sent toALA Unit 265 at PO Box 8, Garden City, NY, 11530.

Veterans Flags on 7th Street

On behalf of the Village, I’d like to personally thank Garden City High School junior Kiera O’Leary for her

Girl Scout Gold Award project. The flags on 7th Street are a beautiful way to honor our local veterans. If you haven’t seen them yet, they were installed on light poles between Hilton Avenue and Cathedral Avenue and will hang now through Veterans Day. Flag & Son, Inc. did the installation. The flags include a photo of local veterans and their dates of service. Kiera, who will be walking with the American Legion in Monday’s Memorial Day parade, has also started a Veterans Club at the school where local veterans are invited to basketball games to be recognized during halftime with a bouquet of flowers, thanking them for their service.
