Legislator Laura Schaefer joined with the members of the Nassau County Legislature to approve funding for numerous projects in District 14 with Community Revitalization Project (CRP) funds. These Inter-Municipal Agreements (IMAs) fund local fire departments, municipalities, and government entities to help benefit the residents of the community. In Legislative District 14 there were three projects funded.
The first project provides portable data terminals for the Westbury Fire District. These terminals will be installed in each response vehicle in the care of the fire department. They will allow for full computer-aided dispatch information while responding to alarms. This advancement in technology will be of great benefit to coordination and response time for emergencies.
The second project is with the Town of Oyster Bay to purchase, upgrade and install an HVAC heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system at the Hicksville Gregory Museum. This will allow for public use of the museum and create a climate-controlled environment for preservation of historic artifacts.
The final project allows the Garden City Fire Department to purchase portable radios for use during their emergency calls. These radios, replacing their previous out-of-date equipment, will allow the departments to coordinate and respond to fire and emergency calls and provide the best service to the Garden City community possible.
“The residents in the 14th Legislative District are benefiting from these CRP funds, as their fire departments and museums will be updated and quality of life will be maintained,” Legislator Laura Schaefer said. “I am happy to provide the means possible for these services and look forward to seeing the funding go to good use.”
