" Our plans which will go into
effect the week of February 16,
will set aside one night a week
from 8: 30 p. m. to 10: 30 p. m.
where one or more councilmen
will meet the residents at four
locations throughout the Town"
Ocker said. A schedule will be
announced next week.
He added that the community
center at the Marjorie R. Post
Massapequa Community Park,
the Hicksville Annex, theSyosset
Park's Community Center and
Town Hall are under consideration
as possible locations where
the public can meet the council-men.
" By spreading the meeting locations
throughout the Town we
hope to save the residents time
and inconvenience traveling to a
location too distant from their
homes," Ocker said. " The locations
chosen represent a
cross- section of the Town's geography
and encourage interested
residents to voice their problems
to their Councilman."
