Public Comment:

  • Joseph D’Amico of 4219 Wehrman Avenue came forward with concerns about the construction debris in the area, particularly dust, and a big concern about the speeding cars going up and down his block now that the street has been reopened.  Mayor Montana stated that the Village Manager would personally follow up on the complaints.
  • Nellie Johnson of Grace Park asked if there was any possibility of getting a traffic signal on Irving Park Road by the condominiums.  Mayor stated they have asked the State prior and doubts it very much, but they will ask again.
  • Barbara Piltaver of 4303 Atlantic asked if the money allotted for street repairs would include repairing Atlantic Avenue and Montrose. Village Manager stated yes.  She asked for clarification on the monies allotted for sidewalk repairs and wanted to know what “certain property” the village was looking into acquiring.
