There was a discussion of the wetlands permit for the dike around Eastern Long Island Hospital. The hospital started the dike but was apparently stopped when someone complained work was being done without a wetlands permit. The planning board recommended that the hospital submit a drainage plan for the hospital property. The village board decided to make a drainage plan part of a permit.


The ELIH dike.  The wetlands permit was issued. The hospital will be asked to provide a drainage plan in three months. Highly unreliable sources say the rainwater roof runoff from the hospital maybe going into the sewer system.

There was a discussion of eliminating parking on the east side of Carpenter Street as far as Ludlam Place.

Village administrator Pallase asked the village board to ratify emergency repairs to Engine No. 4 at the power plant.

Work on curbs, sidewalks and paving to the tune of 315k was authorized for Carpenter Street.
