It's hard to believe that one year has gone by since Storm Sandy ravished us with so much destruction. I hope our nearby neighbors and those of us with family who were hard hit are getting back to full recovery. I am sorry for the cancellation of last months program which had to do with changes brought on by Storm Sandy. However, this was caused by the government shutdown. We were only advised by FEMA a few days before the meeting that they would be unable to attend. We are looking to reschedule in the near future.
This month, aside from the scheduled program, it's turkey giveaway time. As the holiday season approaches, I find this to be the best time of the year. Last year we had over 50 turkeys to give away. We are hoping to do the same this month. So, you should plan on coming to the meeting. There's a good chance you may be leaving with a turkey.
I'd like to wish a speedy recovery to Councilman Lew Fidler, who recently under went by-pass surgery. I understand most people feel 20 years younger after this procedure, and Lew I hope you are one of them. We'll be looking for you out and about real soon.
As a result of recent reallocation of resources within the NYPD, we will have 15 more officers assigned to the 63rd Precinct. This would give the precinct more flexibility with coverage within the neighborhoods of our area.
Just a note on the dog run article on page 3. We can have either the dog run or the off the leash rule, but not both.
So please, plan on attending the next general meeting, where you'll be able to ask questions or state your concerns and get updates on neighborhood issues.
