PRESIDING OFFICER NICOLELLO VOTES FOR ENHANCED SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING

Stop Sexual Harassment

Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello and the Rules Committee of the Nassau County Legislature recently approved legislation requiring all Nassau County employees to undergo sexual harassment training. The legislation also requires all employees to be retrained on the County’s sexual harassment policy each year they are employed. This proactive legislation aims to remove any ambiguity by teaching what conduct is and is not appropriate.


“There is no place for abuse or harassment anywhere, let alone the workplace,” said Presiding Officer Nicolello. “We strive to maintain a safe environment for all our workers in Nassau County, and given the reports of sexual harassment in media and government elsewhere, it is appropriate to update our training protocol in Nassau.” 

The Rules Committee also passed legislation prohibiting business property owners or their contractors from shoveling snow onto a county road. This will allow snow plows to operate more easily, which makes the roads safer for pedestrians and motorists.

Finally, the Rules Committee passed two items aimed at helping those who have given so much to the community. The first extends discounts for the Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums to retired auxiliary police, volunteer firefighters, and volunteer ambulance corps. The discount would apply to the Nassau County Leisure Pass, entrance to the Old Bethpage Village Restoration, and other Nassau County parks fees. The second item extends the Cold War Veterans Exemption. Previously, the exemption expired after ten years. Now, the exemption is extended for as long as the veteran is the owner of the qualifying property. Additionally, the maximum amount of the exemption was increased from $50,000 to $75,000.

All of this legislation will be considered by the full Nassau County Legislature on Monday, March 26, 2018.
