Its time to merge the LBPD into the Nassau County PD. TThe City is taking out a loan to pay for an overpaid and underutilized police department.

Every homeowner should take note of the ordinance requiring inspection of their sewer laterals. Depending on the pending legislation, this may further burden homeowners with mandatory inspection and maintenance of their sewer line between their home and the street. How many new costs can each homeowner absorb?
