Carman Jr., New Village Deputy Mayor
Most significant change at the Incorporated Village of Farm-ingdale's
annual reorganizational meeting held on Monday at Village

give other Board members the opportunity they deserve for their
well done jobs as trustees.
Later, Trustee Carman gave a report on a housing and urban
renewal meeting which was held recently in the village by himself
and an official of that organization. Main feature was the
consideration of additional parking space on or near Main Street.
