The Board set the date of November 2, 1987 for the Public Hearing on their request. The firm had previously requested that the site be allowed to have a convenience store as well as service cars for gas and oil and this former request was denied. Now, they wish to sell auto parts as part of their operation. Previously, at their former Public Hearing on a conven-ience store, the fact that it would be a 24 hour store led to many objections from local residents. The Board a d o p t e d the necessary SEQUA resolution that the proposed auto parts store would not create any "signif-i c a n t impact on the environment." The Board approved a request from Christ Church in Lynbrook to hold a Fair on November 7, 1987, and also approved a request from Our Lady of Peace Church to hold a Flea Market in the OLP school auditorium on October 25, 1987 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Board authorized Mayor Geier to sign a new agreement with the Nassau County Consortium for community development for a three year period. The old agreement ends on October 14, 1987. A c t i n g Police Chief Joseph Lauriano reported that Nassau County is think-ing of putting up no-parking signs on Merrick Rd. from Wilbur Street to Dawes Avenue due to traffic altera-tions which the county is planning for the Horton A v e n u e - M e r r i c k Road intersection. The County is proposing "arrows" at that intersection's traffic lights for better turning. The Board approved the signs, which the Chief explained were only to be installed dur-ing construction. A Bond Resolution was I 'Tpted by the Board of Trustees in the amount of $75,000 for a sanitation truck with a 15 of the year life issue, and for $45,000 for 3 salt spreaders, a steam jenny, and a sign printing machine (5 years). The Board approved in a r e s o l u t i o n , a "signature authorization" to Deputy Assessor Marion Cash so that she can sign vouchers. Supt. Bruno Areana was g r a n t e d p e r m i s s i o n to attend a Seminar on the economics of "Winter Con-crete Construction" at B r o o k l y n P o l y t e c h n i c al Institute at a cost of $90 in the program of "Continuing E d u c a t i o n " set by the village. The Board officially res-cinded the Bid Date set on repavingGreis Park parking fields. Mayor Geier announced tht Lynbrook was awarded a Pedestrian Safety Award from the American Auto-mobile Club in recognition of special accomplishments for the safety of pedestrains. Only 10 communities in New York State have received this Citation. The Board approved a $2,946.47 write-off on the collection of damaged prop-erty because of the lapse of time and the Statutre of Limitations. Mayor Geier explained that under the Federal Labor Standards Act, the. village must adopt a resolu-. tion regarding "overtime" in the Police Dept. The Board passed a resolution adopting a 28 day work cycle for the computation of overtime. The Village of Lynbrook had assessed the property at 185 Merrick Road in the a m o u n t of $17,107.50 because the Village was forced to safeguard that construction site by erecting b a r r i e r s , among other things. The Board adopted a resolution to accept the amount of $10,353.75 from the RJ V Construction Corp. Village Clerk Shirley Mos-kowitz stated that their tax bill will now be amended. U nder Good and Welfare, a resident asked if the $5.3 Bond which the village is considering for the pro-posed repaving of roads in the "infra-structure of pro-posed improvements" in the village would be put to a public referendum." Mayor Geier answered that the vil-lage may consider that proposal. The next Board Meeting is set for October 19, 1987.
