A brief meeting Tuesday night in the Village of Great Neck saw the board pass two resolutions.
Among them was the unanimous approval of a reduction of fees for commercial properties from $1 per square foot to 25 cents for work to be done at 575 Middle Neck Road. The Building Department’s job is estimated to cover about 4,000 square feet.
Also on the agenda was the request of New York State to grant retroactive membership with their tier four status in the state and local employees’ retirement system in regard to a Village of Kensington government employee who was not previously offered the opportunity to join the retirement system. It was approved by the four present board members.
The meeting followed the village’s elections, where Mayor Pedram Bral and Trustees Anne Mendelson and Steven Hope were re-elected to two-year terms.
“We are looking forward to working with everyone,” Bral said Tuesday night. “There’s a lot of work to be done, and we’re going to continue making lots of changes.”
Mendelson also thanked those who came out to vote while Hope was absent from the meeting.
Bral, Mendelson and Hope received 454, 430 and 415 votes, respectively, with a total of 1,337 votes counted.
The board of trustees’ next meeting is planned to take place on July 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Court Trailer, located at 767 Middle Neck Road.
