On April 4, 2016, the
Board of Trustees held its Annual Organization Meeting.The agenda was highlighted by the swearing-in
of Trustees Margaret Hagan and Kenneth Moore (sworn in April 1st).Both Trustees were re-elected for another two
year term.They ran unopposed and their
re-election is a telling endorsement by the residents of Bellerose Village as
recognition of their commitment and service to the Village.I thank and congratulate Peggy and Ken and
look forward to our continuing working together.
residents were appointed to the various vital volunteer service roles which are
necessary to supporting and maintaining Village operations and the Village’s
character.These residents donate their time,
effort and expertise and by so doing, allow substantial cost savings to the
entire community.Their service is
honorable and is greatly appreciated.
Public Hearing – Proposed Village
The annual public hearing on the proposed budget is scheduled
for Monday, April 18 at 7:30PM at Village Hall. The Board of Trustees and I have worked
diligently for the past five years to ensure that the Village of Bellerose
continues to provide a prudent fiscal plan for the benefit of all of the
residents of the Village.I am happy to report that the proposed
budget will result in a 0% tax increase for the Village for the next fiscal
year. The budget has been prepared with a prudent consideration for
continuing and improving the service levels expected by our taxpayers and for
maintaining the financial integrity and stability of our Village.
The Board of Trustees and I recognize the financial
challenges you as taxpayers in Nassau County face and are proud to represent
you and hope that this proposed
budget with no tax increase will help you as residents to continue to
enjoy living in this beautiful community. Draft copies of the proposed budget are
available at Village Hall and on the Village website.I urge all citizens to review the budget and
attend the public hearing on April 18th where a comprehensive
presentation will be made.
The Village Playground
will be open seven days per week from 9AM to dusk through November, weather
permitting.Please note a surveillance
camera was installed overlooking the playground last September for enhanced
security purposes.If you have any
questions, I can be reached at 516-354-1000 and I will call you back.For general information, visit the Village
